Donegal County Council replenishes salt stocks

A senior roads official with Donegal County Council has said there are no budgetary or supply issues with gritting in Donegal. Michael Mc Garvey said that a full service has been provided on all but one of the roads on the council's approved list, and while there had been some concerns about supplies of salt, stocks have been replaced today. The one exception is the road from Doochary and Termon, which the council says has been so bad that it's not been possible to maintain a full gritting programme on the route.

Once again, caution is being urged today, with very slippery conditions on secondary roads, and also on footpaths.
