SDCC to carry out precautionary gritting of some roads tonight

Temperatures look set to dip under freezing tonight, and as a precaution SDCC will grit roads in the upland and hilly areas around Ballinascorney and Bohernabreena.

The N81 Tallaght Bypass will also be gritted at 5am tomorrow morning.

Meanwhile, M50 management have said they are not currently planning any precautionary winter maintenance tonight.

In a message earlier this evening they said: “Temperatures are marginal and will be monitored.”

With the possibility of wintry conditions for drivers in the morning the AA have issued some tips, which can be found HERE.
