Ceredigion Council works tirelessly to keep roads safe this winter

Ceredigion keeps moving on the roads and during this cold weather which is forecasted to continue until at least Sunday 18 December.

During this time, Ceredigion County Council has been busy keeping the main roads safe, as well as replenishing grit boxes that provide motorists and pedestrians with the means of self-help. Where possible, schools have also been treated to allow safe access to pupils, staff and parents. We will continue to carry out this work for as long as required and resources are available.

Since 07 December the Council has:

Carried out 34 gritting runs
Spread 1,080 tonnes of salt
Gritted 19,400 miles of highway
Received a large volume of requests relating to the Winter Service

All requests for assistance are responded to on a prioritised basis as resources allow and in as timely a manner as possible.


Councillor Bryan Davies, Council Leader and Cabinet Member with responsibility for Civil Contingencies, said: “Our workforce and support teams are working hard to make travel as safe as possible in the county. Many thanks to the residents of Ceredigion for their appreciation and support during this time.”


There may be impacts on services such as waste collection due to the weather. Keep an eye on the web page for any Waste Collection Service disruptions: http://www.ceredigion.gov.uk/resident/bins-recycling/recycling-bin-collection-dates/waste-disruptions/
