VLADIKAVKAZ, January 20 (Itar-Tass) —— Traffic on the trans-Caucasian road, which links Russia to South Ossetia, resumed after a five-day pause. Heavy snowfalls sent down more than a hundred of avalanches, the North Ossetian Emergency Situations Ministry told Itar-Tass.
“Traffic on the trans-Caucasian road resumed at 7:00 p.m. on Friday. However, drivers should be very careful and keep a distance between vehicles at no less than 70 meters,” ministry spokesperson Yulia Starchenko said.
The road was closed for traffic on January 15. It has been snowing heavily since then. The weather brightened on Friday, and the North Caucasian paramilitary service sent down the most dangerous avalanches. Road services cleaned up the snow. In all, several hundreds of thousands of cubic meters of snow have been cleaned up.
