10.01.19. Roads of Serbia: 1800 road workers in the field

PE “Roads of Serbia” is informing the public that the traffic on state roads faces difficulties due to bad weather conditions and new snow precipitation, occasional frost and fog.

1800 road workers with all available machinery and trucks for spreading and snow removal are in the field 24/7 doing their best to provide for unobstructed traffic.

We have sufficient amounts of salt, crushed aggregate and grit as well as cold asphalt mass for repairing potholes.

During the organization of the winter maintenance of I and II category state roads, special attention is paid to the following locations: "Gazela" bridge, Bubanj Potok crest, Begaljičko Brdo, crest "Mečka", Čestobrodica, Zlatibor, Popadija, Tresibaba, Svetinja, uphill Rušanj and Rudnik on the road Ibarski put, crests on Fruška Gora (Iriški Venac and Banstol), Beška bridge, Jaram crest on the road Brzeće – Kopaonik, etc.

Snow from state roads of third priority, i.e. C category (local and village roads) is removed only after the snow from state roads of I and II priority, i.e. A and B maintenance category is entirely removed.

PE “Roads of Serbia” appeals to all participants in traffic not to start the journey without utmost need, but if they do so they must have obligatory winter equipment and chains in hilly and mountainous regions, obey the speed limits and adapt it to the road conditions.

Detailed information about the situation, possible bans, rockfalls, fog, ice and crests on critical sections on state roads of the Republic of Serbia can be found on the PE “Roads of Serbia” website in real time, every day at 6:00 and 18:00, and more frequently in case of extraordinary circumstances, on the following link: http://www.putevi-srbije.rs/index.php/sr/izve%C5%A1taj-zimske-slu%C5%BEbe
