Traffic forecast for August 11, 2020
During the day, increased traffic volume is expected at some border crossings and on the main road sections.
Due to increased traffic volume, congestion and traffic jams are expected. Please drive carefully, be patient, and follow the traffic regulations and restrictions.
Drivers are advised to drive in the morning and in the evening to avoid high daytime temperatures. We also reccomend taking occasional rests from the journey and staying hydrated.
Long wait times are expected at most border crossings due to increased traffic volume and border checks.
No difficulties are expected in ferry traffic.
Due to crowds and summer temperatures, we suggest that you do not drive towards the coast on Saturday morning. Drive rather in the afternoon or evening, due to lower temperatures, but also due to lower traffic. In direction interior, avoid Sunday afternoon.
