MURMANSK, January 20 (Itar-Tass) – Full-scale traffic has been re-launched on M-18 Kola federal automobile road in the Murmansk region located on the Kola Peninsula in the north of European Russia.
A spokesman for the Murmansk regional branch of the Ministry for Emergency Situations and Civil Defense /EMERCOM/ told Itar-Tass traffic was resumed as of 16:00 hours Moscow Standard Time on the section of the M-18 road between the 1,471st and 1,510th kilometers.
“Transport is moving in the scheduled mode there, as the wind has calmed down and the blizzard has stopped,” the spokesman said. “We don’t expect any big atmospheric precipitation.”
Traffic was partly suspended on that section of the road as of 17:10 Saturday, since the blizzard had reduced visibility to almost a zero.
Cars were diverted to a Nikel-Prirechny-Verkhnetulomsky-Kola-Murmansk bypass route.
