General Info

Driving in winter conditions involves particular risks and it is therefore advisable to drive with extreme care and avoid unnecessary travel. The following links give important information in relation to winter driving.

The Mayo County Council Winter Service Plan 2017/2018 is now in place.  The aim of this Winter Service Plan is to set out how the winter service for ice and snow conditions will be provided for County Mayo.  Mayo County Council ordinarily treats 1,050 km of road across 21 treatment routes which equates to 100% of the National primary network, 100% of the national secondary network, 78% of regional roads and 3% of the local road network.

The Duty Engineer makes assessments of conditions in Mayo using a combination of information from Met Eireann & automated weather stations located around the county(4) and also in adjoining counties(4).

The plan also contains a maps of the county showing the winter service routes.

Reports on some road conditions around the county will be available below and on Twitter (Mayo CountyCouncil) when required.
