It also shows locations where sand and grit stock is available for use by the public.Road users can also view live road conditions at a number of locations around the county and across the northwest via the Councils website. Locations include N56 at Gaoth Dobhair, N15 at Bundoran, N 15 at Lough Mourne, N15 at Killygordon, N13 at An Grianan Aileach, A515 Foyle Bridge and A6 at Glenshane Pass.
