KRASNODAR, February 1 (Itar-Tass) — The Agoi section of the Dzhubga-Sochi highway in Russia’s southern Krasnodar region has been reopened for traffic, an officer on duty at the regional department for federal highways has told Tass.
The Agoi Passage in the Tuapse district was snowed in late on Tuesday. Vehicles first crawled, and then the section was closed for traffic. Region’s Governor Alexander Tkachev asked the head of the Tuapse district to assume personal control over the situation on the highway. Additional snow-fighting vehicles and road police were sent there. At the present moment, that section of the highway has been reopened for traffic.
However, weather forecasts are not comforting, while the emergencies ministry warns about the possibility of new emergency situations. Gale-force winds and wet snow are forecasted in the Tuapse district, in Novorossiysk, Anapa, Sochi and Gelendzhik.
