Ceredigion residents and visitors are advised to be safe and not make unnecessary journeys during the current very cold weather conditions.
Driving conditions, 17 December 2022
The weather in large areas of Ceredigion has deteriorated over night.
This has impacted on road conditions to the extent that the Council’s winter maintenance activities have been affected. It has not been possible to treat all primary routes.
The forecast for Saturday is for rain and sleet which will make travel conditions even more treacherous.
The public are therefore strongly advised not to travel unless this is essential and to exercise extreme caution and care. The Council will continue with its efforts to deal with situation as resources and conditions allow in accordance with its Winter Service Plan.

Keeping Ceredigion safe during the cold weather, 12 December 2022
Ceredigion County Council has been treating its primary road network with salt/grit for some time now. However, these pre-treated routes remain dangerous, with non-pre-treated routes even more so.
These cold conditions are forecasted to continue for at least the remainder of this week and beyond. The Council will endeavour to continue to treat its pre-treated routes, and other non-pre-treated routes as resources allow.
Councillor Bryan Davies, Council Leader and Cabinet Member with responsibility for Civil Contingencies, said: “Council staff are working long hours to ensure the county is able to keep moving during the period of very cold weather conditions. Be aware that road conditions remain dangerous. The public are advised to think about their journey before venturing out and considering if the journey is essential. Non-essential journeys may risk you and others.”
Impacts could be had on services such as waste collection due to the weather. Keep an eye on the web page for any Waste Collection Service disruptions.
Schools could be affected by the weather, so keep an eye on your school channels.
