County Westmeath has been severely impacted by drifting snow and this has made many roads impassable, in both urban and rural areas. The public are asked to avoid all travel and if you require emergency assistance, please call 999.
The Council has mobilised snowploughs and diggers to clear snow drifts and is concentrating on Priority 1 routes, being National Primary (N4) and Secondary Roads (N51, N52, N55, N62). However, many of these are currently impassable and will take some time to clear.
If you require assistance from Westmeath County Council please call the Council’s main telephone number: (044) 9332000.
