Cold Weather Salting Routes

Cold Weather Salting Routes

Cork City Council has defined salting routes (shown below) which prioritise main traffic routes, bus routes and other areas such as those adjacent to hospitals and schools.  Footpaths and bridges are also salted especially in the city centre in areas of greatest pedestrian movement. 

All salting and gritting in Cork City is carried out by Road Maintenance personnel and rosters have been drawn up for personnel on call in the event of severe weather. The decision on whether or not to salt roads is taken by Roads Maintenance engineers based on information received from Met Eireann and the NRA Road Weather Information System and also based on local knowledge of areas most susceptible to icing such as higher ground.
