Andorran authorities reopen road after landslide leaves it cut off from Spain

ANDORRAN authorities have reopened a road to all traffic this morning (Monday) after a landslide blocked it and access to Spain.

The principality’s Transport Department said the CG-1 road had been cleared off debris from the landslide which took place near Borda Sabate on Saturday.

Transport Department officials worked with their Spanish counterparts to unblock the road and divert traffic after the road was shut at about 10am.

Light vehicles were permitted to use the road from around 1pm while heavy vehicles such as lorries had to enter and leave Andorra via France.

No injuries were caused by the landslide but a nearby shopping centre was damaged, according to Andorran authorities. Specialists are yet to determine the cause of the landslide.
