VLADIKAVKAZ, March 13 (Itar-Tass) – Worsening weather has compelled the authorities in Russia’s North Caucasian region of North Ossetia to suspend traffic on the Georgian Military road between the regional capital Vladikavkaz and the mountainous village of Upper Lars, a spokeswoman for the territorial office of the federal Ministry for Emergency Situations and Civil Defense /EMERCOM/ told Itar-Tass.
Traffic was stopped in both directions as of 17:30 Moscow Standard Time, Yulia Starchenko, the spokeswoman said.
“A warming-up station has been set up for the drivers stranded on the road in the vicinity of Upper Lars,” she said. “EMERCOM is asking drivers to refrain from trips in the direction of the Upper Lars border crossing station until weather at the Cross Passover improves.”
The Georgian Military Road is the only automobile road linking Russia and Georgia across the Grand Caucasus Mountain Range.
A day earlier, EMERCOM suspended traffic on Transkam, the automobile road linking Russia and the Republic of South Ossetia.
