Fingal County Council Issues Warning As "Emergency Treatment" Takes Place On Roads
Temperatures dropped far below what was forecast last night
Fingal County Council has issued a warning to drivers to be careful after emergency treatment was required on roads across North Dublin last night.
Temperatures dropped "significantly" below what was forecast, creating ice which needed to be gritted at the last minute.
Crews were mobilised across Fingal from 11pm.
Road surface temperatures are significantly below forecast so emergency treatment is now required. Our crews have been mobilised and will commence salting roads across Fingal from 11pm tonight. Take care while driving. #ArriveAlive #BeWinterReady #YourCouncilWorkingForYou— FingalCountyCouncil (@Fingalcoco) January 11, 2018
