3:36pm Wednesday 23rd January 2013 in News
The A40 was closed temporarily at Pengawse hill earlier this afternoon for the road to be ploughed and gritted, with difficult driving conditions in parts of the east and north of the county.
Snow is still heavy in the area and traffic is moving slowly. Pembrokeshire County Council says there are "significant delays" on A40 eastbound, with traffic moving slowly in both directions.
Pembrokeshire County Council says tonight's (Wednesday) meeting for chairs of school governors at County Hall, Haverfordwest has been cancelled because of travel disruption caused by the weather conditions. A new date for the meeting will be announced in due course.
The A477 road is now passable and traffic is easing but the dual carriageway to Carmarthen has been reduced to one lane each way, although no disruption is reported east of Carmarthen.
There are also particularly bad conditions on the A487 between Newport and Cardigan.
The bus which was stuck near Maenclochog earlier this afternoon is now clear but driving conditions are difficult in parts of the north and east of the county.
There are reports of hazardous driving conditions between Felindre and Eglwyswrw, with cars stuck on the road and snow making it impassable.
Delays are likely on public transport in the area, with the 351 service only running between Tenby to Amroth, with problems between Amroth and Pendine.
The 322 is not running, but the 430 is encountering problems in the Crymych area.
The 412 is having problems between Newport and Cardigan and delays are likely.
Pembrokeshire County Council said all other routes were operating as normal.
