Donegal council officials meet NRA this week to discuss salt stocks

Donegal County Council is meeting with the National Roads Authority this week to discuss salt stocks for the coming winter.

Responding to Cllr Martin Farren who raised the issue in the chamber this week, Roads Service Director John Mc Laughlin confirmed that the NRA has brought in extra salt stocks this year, and discussions on where to deploy that salt are now under way.

He indicated the council is increasing its storage capacity, particularly in Carndonagh and Stranorlar.

Cllr Faerren is welcoming the indications, saying he never again wants to be called to a meeting in mid December to be told some roads cannot be treated properly...........
