Ceredigion - Sunday night gritting report

Salt Stocks - 480 tonnes
Salt received today – 100 tonnes from Salt Union in Cheshire. Hopefully we'll receive a further 100 tonnes on Monday
Salt and Grit spread within past 24 hours – approx 170 tonnes

Primary routes – 2 pre salt runs carried out. Secondary routes – Gritting continues and more routes have been opened up. There should now be an access route to all sizeable communities.

Snow clearance has been carried out during the day on the Cwm Ystwyth loop, though access to Ystumtuen continues to be passable using 4X4. Likewise the Clarach to Borth route is still closed by the police, whilst the Buarth area and Penparcau estate roads have all been treated and are accessible again. More pavements have been cleared in both the North and South of the County. Grit bins will continue to be replenished as stocks allow.

Whilst the situation has improved due to the slight rise in temperature, we shouldn’t become complacent especially as heavy snow is forecast for parts of the country during Tuesday/Wednesday and it remains to be seen how it will affect Ceredigion.

The Highways Department deployed 70 workers during Sunday and 32 vehicles.

The refuse collection service will be reviewed on Monday.

Thanks to Ray Quant for the info
