Snow chaos hits St Albans district
THE district is waking up to major travel disruption this morning, caused by a combination of the weekend’s heavy snowfall and last night’s extreme frost - which reached -13 degrees in some places.
On the trains, there are many cancellations on the Thameslink route because the frost has affected trains and track infrastructure.
First Capital Connect said tickets can be used on East Midlands services and London Underground on all reasonable routes as well as Great Northern route services.
Trains have not been able to call at London Bridge and services have been diverted via Herne Hill.
Luton Airport reopened yesterday, but passengers are advised that there is still disruption to arriving and departing flights.
Refuse and recycling services across St Albans district are expected to be severely affected by snow today. The council’s refuse and recycling crews, if they are unable to make collections, will be out clearing snow and gritting pavements.
Although major roads are open, motorists are warned to take extra care when driving due to the snow.
