Yellow Weather Warning For Icy Conditions

yellow warning

The Met Office has issued another YELLOW weather warning affecting Rhondda Cynon Taf from 5pm on Thursday, January 19, to 10am on Friday, January 20, due to potential for ice developing and creating some challenging travelling conditions.

This may result in further traffic and travel disruption in some areas. Public transport may also be affected by the continued sub-zero weather temperatures. 

Motorists are advised to allow extra time for their journeys for the duration of the weather warning and drive according to the conditions. 

The Council’s Highways and Streetcare departments will be monitoring the situation and treating the main network across our County Borough, along with high mountain routes and all Council car parks.

But the public is advised to remain alert and take extra care throughout the latest Met Office weather warning. Where possible and safe to do so, residents and businesses are also being asked to themselves help alleviate any risks, with small actions which can make a big difference at this time.

Over 1300 grit bins are provided at locations across Rhondda Cynon Taf, for use by residents on the highway in their locality. Stock levels in these bins are regularly checked and our crews are currently restocking them if required. 

Grit Bins: Request a refill, new or replacement bin  

If you have any issues, please call the Council’s Emergency Out Of Hours number 01443 425011. Also, follow the Council’s official Twitter and Facebook social media accounts for regular updates.
