It’s called ALPINE Bend for a reason – and this new street sign will come into its own when it snows.
Six signs have been installed so far with a total of 17 to be erected over the coming months.
It is thought the old snow warning signs such as those around Holmfirth and on Manchester Road heading up over the Pennines, will be removed.
The new signs have been brought in as they are more flexible and can warn of both severe weather and traffic issues.
They have been paid for thanks to £300,000 grant from the Government.
A Kirklees Council spokesman said the signs would provide motorists with more information about the travel conditions, including road closures and upcoming events.
