Wexford Impassable Roads - Map Updated Tuesday 6 March The following map shows Wexford roads that remain impassable as of this morning March 6th. This is subject to change as the day progresses. http://wexford.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=969819ee1c134c1eb7d35eafbe999bd1 Please continue to exercise Extreme Caution when using the roads in Wexford County. Please note that some regional roads may still have pinch points where vehicles are required to give way and local primary roads may only permit a single lane of traffic for sections of the route. This map is updated at intervals throughout the day and is subject to change.
Where travel is absolutely unavoidable road users should check conditions and traffic reports in your area, along the route and at your destination before considering making any journey. If the roads are passable in your area the advice drivers is to: Clear windows and mirrors before you set out, use a screen scraper and de-icer. Do not use hot water on the windscreen as it can crack the glass. In snow and icy conditions slow down, use all controls delicately and leave extra distance between you and the vehicle in front. Avoid over steering and harsh braking and harsh acceleration. Use the highest gear possible to avoid wheel spin. Select a low gear when travelling downhill especially if through bends. Road users also need to remain vigilant as the snow and ice begins to thaw. Thawing snow and slush will build up at road sides. Slow down as there may be a risk of localised flooding as the thaw starts and this will increase the risk of aquaplaning. Visibility will be reduced as spray from vehicles is thrown onto the windscreen of your vehicle. Keep an extra distance from the vehicle in front. Ensure that your windshield washer is full. Keep your lights clear of grime and dirt. Pedestrians are reminded that footpaths may not be treated so walk with extreme care. Make sure you are wearing appropriate footwear, wear shoes or boots with appropriate traction. Don’t walk in the streets at all costs if possible. Remember, cars and trucks slip and slide, too! If it’s an emergency, and you can’t avoid the street, wear bright or reflective clothing. Pedestrians are advised to beware of overhead hazards! Falling icicles and chunks of snow pose a serious risk. Be aware of what’s happening above you, and stay clear from the edges of buildings.
