Orange Danger Warnings: – Attach loose items
The Norwegian Public Roads Administration makes the following decisions:
– Unni Kifstad, director of the Department of Public Roads Management in Norway, writes in a press release that we are prepared for the condition of the roads to be more challenging, based on the danger warnings of the NVE and the Meteorological Agency. – In some parts of Ofoten, Sør-Troms and Indre Troms there will be very difficult driving conditions and problems getting on the roads.
– Here we encourage people to get out of the car. Kifstad says roads can be closed at short notice, and there can be real danger of where you are going, or not returning home. Roads in other parts of northern Norway may be closed due to bad weather.
He encourages all road users to stay up-to-date on the latest weather forecasts and road conditions. Traffic information for national and district roads in Nordland and Troms and Finnmark can be found at vegvesen.no/trafikk.
