N56 upgraded to red as new salt supplies arrive in Donegal

Distribution of a new load of salt for treating roads is set to begin tomorrow.

A 4 thousand tonne shipment is arriving into Cork this evening, with a fleet of vehicles on standby to distribute it nationwide. Some supplies have already arrived in Dublin and Belfast, with extra salting taking place from tomorrow, with the N56 being redesignated from a green to a red route. This means the route will now be salted.

Vincent Lynn of Donegal County Council says it's a welcome positive development...........
