Due to the icing in Ukraine, traffic is partially restricted
The dramatic change in weather conditions has led to a dangerous state of roads in several regions of Ukraine, including the capital.
Ukravtodor reports traffic restrictions in Transcarpathian, Vinnytsia, Khmelnytsky, Cherkasy, Zhytomyr and Kiev regions. Restrictions apply to large and heavy vehicles as well as passenger buses. There was an overflow of water on the Svalyava-Mukacheve junction and the traffic was blocked. Currently, the on-site elimination of bad weather is ongoing.
A difficult situation is also observed on the highways of the capital. The numerous congestion caused in most cases by accidents has paralyzed Kiev. The most critical situation occurs on the roads of Zhytomyr direction. Bridges are paralyzed through the ice with rain. In their turn, rescuers are advised, if possible, not to use their own vehicles during the period of icy roads.
It is worth noting, according to the Yandex resource, which reflects the presence of traffic congestion, the situation in Kiev received 7 points out of 10 possible.
