VLADIKAVKAZ, January 17 (Itar-Tass) —— The trans-Caucasian road, which links Russia to the South Caucasus, will be closed for traffic no less until Wednesday. It started snowing heavily again along the route on Tuesday, the North Caucasian Emergency Situations Ministry said.

“The weather worsened and heavy snowfalls resumed in the mountains of the Alagir district on Tuesday afternoon, and the avalanche protection service had to suspend its work,” ministry press secretary Yulia Starchenko said.

The avalanche protection service and the road service cannot say at present when the road may reopen for traffic, because everything will depend on the duration of the snowfalls. The road has been inaccessible for two days. There are no vehicles stranded there at present.

Another route to the South Caucasus, the Voyenno-Gruzinskaya road, is also closed for traffic. The road is icy on the Georgian side and fully cleaned in North Ossetia.
