Winter Maintenance

Cork City Council has defined salting routes which prioritise main traffic routes, bus routes and other areas such as those adjacent to hospitals and schools for winter maintenance season which runs from mid October to mid April. Bridges are also salted especially in the city centre in areas of greatest pedestrian movement. The following are the salting routes:
