KEMEROVO, March 10 (Itar-Tass) – The traffic from the Kemerovo region to Toms and the Altai Territory has been restored. The complicated weather conditions still block traffic to Novosibirsk, press service of the regional police reported on Sunday.
On Saturday, the most complicated situation was on the highway to Novosibirsk, where a jam stopped almost 200 vehicles. The traffic both to Kemerovo and to Novosibirsk was practically blocked for several hours.
On Sunday, Head of Kuzbass’ Traffic Police Alexander Revetnev told Itar-Tass that truck drivers had been sheltered near Zhuravlevo villate, at the Tanai ski resort and at the local airport.
Press service of the regional branch of Russia’s EMERCOM still does not recommend drivers making long trips.
The dispatch service of Kemerovo’s bus terminal said they were providing services normally. “We have cancelled only an early route to Belokurikha,” the service said.
Weather forecasts say heavy snowstorms with wind to 22-27 m/s will remain in the region on Sunday.
