All state roads of I and II category, access roads to border crossings and mountain tourist centres are passable, however there are difficulties in traffic due to bad weather, large amounts of snowfall and wind which causes snow drifts, it has been stated today by acting director Zoran Drobnjak.
Drobnjak highlights that the fourth degree of readiness is in force on the entire territory of Serbia and that all available machines are in the field 24/7, namely 2200 road workers and more than 1200 trucks and machines for snow removal, intervening for the purpose of safer traffic.
Also, Drobnjak has once again highlighted that as a part of winter maintenance we are paying special attention to crests and critical sections as well as approaches to mountain tourist centres, such as Kopaonik, Zlatibor, Zlatar, Goč….
Drobnjak has pointed out that a huge problem was made by freight vehicles and tanks in particular since several Bulgarian trucks stopped their vehicles on Belgrade Bypass due to obligatory rest thus occupying one lane, which caused additional slowing down of the traffic and formation of a line of vehicles. In the intervention of the MoI, Traffic Police Department, freight vehicles were removed from the road and the traffic was normalized again.
Drobnjak used the opportunity to thank the MoI, Traffic Police Department for fast and efficient intervention.
Drobnjak appealed to all drivers, especially to the truck and tank drivers, not to start the journey without utmost need because it is very difficult to drive in winter conditions, however if they do decide to travel they must have winter equipment and chains with them in hilly and mountainous regions and they should obey the speed limits and adapt their speed to the road conditions.
At the same time, Drobnjak appealed to the press asking them to provide the checked and accurate information about road conditions when informing the public and always to contact the relevant departments at the Roads of Serbia.
