Mayo Fire Service

Winter Ready

Driving in winter conditions involves risks and it is therefore advisable to drive with extreme care and avoid unnecessary travel.  

The Winter-Ready Brochure gives important information in relation to winter driving.

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 1,075 km of road across 23 treatment routes which equates to 100% of the National primary network, 100% of the national secondary network, 82% 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 and also in adjoining counties. 

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