Waterford City and County Council convened a meeting of the Severe Weather Management team on 03.03.2018 at 8:30am and the situation is as follows;
The Roads Crews are prioritising the ongoing clearing of the national primary routes; the N25 is passable throughout the county but extreme caution is needed. Crews are currently clearing the N72 and maintaining clearance on the city access routes; The Quay and the Outer and Inner Ring Roads.
As soon as the national routes are in a passable condition priority will be given to the regional roads for access to the larger towns; Dunmore East, Tramore, Coast Road etc. Access to Ardmore continues to be worked on and the crews are aiming for clearance by this afternoon. Access to Carrick on Suir and Ballymacarbery is largely limited to 4×4 vehicles. Waterford Council is aiming to improve access to these areas throughout the afternoon.
Access on local roads and within housing estates and attention to the clearing of footpaths is dependent on the access being maintained on primary and regional routes and is most likely to begin tomorrow (Sunday) or Monday.
Our phonelines are open from 9:00am – 13:00pm and are manned by Council staff during this period. 0761 102020.
