The Foyle Bridge wasn’t gritted and that has resulted in travel chaos in and around the bridge.
“The main through routes were salted last night and again this morning. They are all passable with care, a lot of the roads haven’t experienced much traffic yet and it will take the action of traffic to turn the salt to brine and eventually remove it from the roads,” insisted Stephen Smith from Transport NI.
Cllr Martin Reilly: “There are very heavy tailbacks from the city side to the waterside on the Foyle bridge and that seems to have had a domino effect.
“There were a number of cars that were struggling to come off the bridge onto the Caw Roundabout.”
A number of school bus services in Derry have also been cancelled including the Reddans and McGonagles service to Thornhill.
