ASFINAG warns – snow alarm! Winter is coming to the west

There had already been a few snowflakes in the Arlberg area in the past few days. In the next 24 hours, significantly more of the “white splendor” could come from the sky – also causing disabilities on the region’s roads.

On Wednesday, the motorway operator Asfinag made an appeal to all road users in Tyrol and Vorarlberg to watch out for their winter equipment because of forecast snowfalls. It should start snowing in the evening or at night. Particularly on the Brenner autobahn (A13) and the Arlberg Schnellstraße (S16) caution should be exercised, it said in a broadcast.

Asfinag has made preparations in the motorway maintenance depots concerned, and winter service will be activated from the evening onwards. All those who will mainly be on the higher roads should also ensure that there is sufficient safety distance and speed. Already in the night of Tuesday there were traffic jams and road closures on the Brenner motorway due to winter driving conditions.
