    Schools

    Most schools across Milton Keynes are closed today. Check out the full list here.

    We will update our website and Facebook page over the weekend when schools release information about arrangements for Monday.

    Roads

    Ringway MK are reporting that main roads are 'passable' throughout Milton Keynes, but there is lots of snow and ice on some untreated estate roads. Take extra care when driving.

    Efforts are currently being focussed on gritting roads to schools, shopping centres and industrial areas. Ringway have also said they will be hand salting areas where lorries are unable to reach.

    Olney, Woburn Sands, Newport Pagnell and other local footpaths are also being cleared. There are also snow ploughs out in Central Milton Keynes, which will be moving on to other main roads as the day moves on.

    Trains

    Trains across the Virgin Trains and London Northwestern Railway network may be cancelled or delayed. Disruption is expected until the end of the day.

    Services from Milton Keynes Central are being affected towards London and the North. If you are able to, you may wish to consider postponing your journey until after the snow has cleared.

    Because of today’s weather conditions across the network, London Northwestern Railway have lifted all evening peak ticket restrictions today. Holders of tickets which have time restrictions may travel at any time this evening.

    In addition, customers holding London Northwestern Railway 'Advance' tickets (where you have to travel on a specified train) for travel today will be permitted to use any alternative West Midlands Railway or London Northwestern Railway service for the rest of today.

    Buses

    Road conditions mean that all Arriva services may be subject to delays. Routes are currently operating as normal with the exception of the following:

    Service 1: Unable to serve Newton Leys

    Service 2: Unable to serve Poets Estate, Willen and Green Park at the moment

    Service 5: Unable to serve New Bradwell

    Service 7: Unable to serve Stantonbury, Furzton, Shenley Church End, Shenley Lodge

    Service 150: Service suspended for the remainder of the day due to road conditions in Aylesbury

    Service X60: Service suspended for the remainder of the day due to road conditions in Aylesbury

    Other 

    Due to the poor conditions, MK Council are suspending food and garden waste collections today so they can concentrate resources into collecting as many bags and boxes as possible.

    There is disruption to Library services across Milton Keynes today, with reduced hours at Central and Wolverton locations. All other locations including the Mobile Library are not operating.
