Winter Maintenance Programme 2017/2018


Winter Maintenance 2017/2018

Inclement Winter weather results in frost and ice on the roads, bringing about an increased risk of collisions and loss of control accidents. During the winter months ground and air temperatures are monitored by Laois County Council staff, and when appropriate salting and gritting crews are called out.

The Winter salting programme results in safer roads with an annual spreading of over 1100 tons of salt on National and Regional Roads in Laois.
