    Winter maintenance fleets were working around the clock, he added.

    And he urged people to plan their journeys in advance and to check the most up-to-date information on the Traffic Scotland website or its Twitter page.

    He said: "There may also be an impact on other modes of transport, so if you're planning to travel by rail, ferry or plane, you should check ahead with the operator to find out if the weather conditions have affected your service."

    The amber weather warning is in place from 15:00 today until 08:00 tomorrow.
