SMS Text Alert

Sign up for SMS alerts for road closures and other emergency situations.

Wicklow County Council has developed an SMS alert system for a range of emergency situations such as severe weather alerts, emergency roadworks and closures, and instances of flooding. Residents can sign up to receive text alerts in their local area - choose from the five municipal districts of Bray, Greystones, Arklow, Wicklow and Baltinglass.

The alerts cover situations such as:

  • Emergency roadworks and closures including scheduled roadworks, fuel spills and diversion advice
  • Weather warnings in conjunction with Met Éireann to include adverse/severe weather updates, location of fallen trees and areas where traffic signals are out
  • Instances of flooding
  • Planned disruption to public water supply in conjunction with Irish Water
  • General alerts advising of change in opening times and bathing water alerts
  • Community notices in relation to public consultations processes such as Local Area Plans, the Local Property Tax and Council events


  • Please Note:

    Certain high priority updates may be sent regardless of your delivery preferences.
