The Winter Service is an important part of the Council's maintenance work. This involves salting major roads when there is a risk of ice, clearing snow and reacting to floods and fallen trees.
Salt is used to lower the freezing point of water in frosty conditions. This reduces the formation of ice and the possibility of skidding or more serious road accidents. Stored in salt barns around Pembrokeshire, it can be deployed quickly by the Council when weather forecasts indicate a freeze ahead.
