HALIFAX, N.S. — The Department of Transportation and Public Works’ SNOW line is up and running for the winter.
The SNOW line service, available by phone and the Internet, provides a report on road conditions on the province’s major highways. It went into operation yesterday.
“The SNOW Line is another tool available to motorists as they prepare for winter driving,” said Ron Russell, Minister of Transportation and Public Works. “Being prepared is key to safe driving in inclement weather.”
Motorists in Nova Scotia can access the SNOW line by calling 1 800 307-SNOW (7669) or, in metro Halifax, 902 424-3933. The line is updated every day at 7 a.m., 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. The road report is also available on the Internet at www.gov.ns.ca/tran. The button in the upper left-hand corner of the page, marked road conditions and weather, gives access to the latest information.
“We’ve all experienced how unpredictable the weather can be in our province,” said Mr. Russell. “We can each do our part by checking the road conditions before heading out and adjusting our driving to the conditions.”
