How this page works: Our servers receive live data from various sources about any accidents, roadworks or other disruption throughout the region. This information is processed in real time and relevant reports sent to this page every minute. The page is fully automated - we don't stand around with a clipboard waiting for something to happen! Incidents, accidents and road closures rely on the Police, highways & local authorities reporting these in a timely manner. That said, experience shows most reports come through within just a few minutes

Bad Weather: The pass rises to nearly 1700ft at its exposed summit. It can frequently be affected by ice, snow, fog and strong winds

The pass is frequently closed in winter

When appropriate, we include severe weather warnings on this page and live adverse weather data from nearby weather stations. For advance planning, we also include details of any poor weather over the next few days when this is forecast by the Met Office Mountain Weather Service
