Winter Maintenance Road Gritting
During the period from October through to April weather conditions may create frost and ice on roads and make travel on roads more hazardous than normal. There is an onus on all road users to eliminate non essential driving and to exercise extreme care if required to drive in such conditions.
Galway County Council monitors road conditions through the winter period and has organised a road gritting regime on specific roads listed below if conditions require gritting. These are priority routes and while every effort will be made to have these routes gritted by morning it cannot be guaranteed as weather conditions i.e. rain, can prevent gritting.
Drivers are warned not to assume that these roads have been gritted
The fact that a road has been gritted with salt does not mean that it is safe to assume that a person can drive as if no frost/ice had occurred, the same level of care as in frost/ice conditions is required.
