Extreme caution: More than 100 roads hit by snowstorm in Spain

Extreme caution: More than 100 roads hit by a snowstorm in Spain. Black and red level alerts have been issued for hundreds of kilometres of roads.

The Directorate General of Traffic (DGT) has called on drivers to exercise extreme caution particularly on mountain roads hit by the storm. A grand total of 108 roads have been affected after a snowstorm hit in the north of the Peninsula. Many of the roads are on a red level alert. Traffic attempting to pass through these roads will face difficulties. Other roads are said to be impassable at the moment.

The majority of the roads are secondary roads but the N-1 in Briviesca and Rubena in Burgos, Asturias’ N-630 in Pajares and the AP1 in Pancorbo have also been hit by snow.

Nearly half of the roads affected by snow are in Aragon. The areas of Huesca and Teruel have been hit particularly hard hit.

Reportedly more than 170 kilometres of roads are considered to be impassable and have been given a black level alert. Nearly 800 kilometres have a red alert which is considered as very difficult to drive on.
