Local authorities can provide details of the priority roads in your county to be salted in the event of ice or snow. Phone and email contact details for your local authority are available on the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government
website. A number of local authorities are now using free alert services to keep the public updated on disruptions in their area. The alerts can cover issues such as flooding, road closures, and water supply disruptions.
