Bad weather has affected the country this Friday, while the situation is more problematic on the Elbasan-Librazhd axis.
The Elbasan-Librazhd axis is blocked due to the falling of stones at “Kthesat e Murrashit”. Work is currently underway to clear the stones, while the segment is very dangerous for the movement of vehicles.
Police are there, managing heavy traffic and opening one side of the road. According to Top Channel correspondent Bruna Kërçyku, the collapse has covered almost the entire area in about 2 or 3 km.
Police have advised drivers to exercise caution when driving.
Currently, all road axes are passable, with the exception of the Elbasan – Librazhd axis, at the Murrash bridge, where the movement is performed only in one lane, as there are inerts on the road. The contracting firm is working for the complete unblocking of the road.
“Due to the bad weather, with rain all over the country, the State Police appeals to all drivers of vehicles and motor vehicles to show caution, reduce speed and respect the rules of the road.
Drivers of vehicles and motor vehicles should not make wrong overtaking, maintain distance while driving, wear a seat belt, helmet, do not use a mobile phone while driving, and should not drive vehicles or motor vehicles under the influence of alcohol or intoxicated.
In all the main road axes, in the urban centers and the main rural axes, the services of the Traffic Police are present, in order to direct the traffic, in order to prevent road accidents, as well as to come to the aid of any driver who can have problems.
All road users should follow the instructions of the employees of the Traffic Police and other state authorities, and in case of road blockage, the drivers should stay in line until it is unblocked.
Currently, all road axes are passable, with the exception of the Elbasan – Librazhd axis, at the Murrash bridge, where the movement is performed only in one lane, as there are inerts on the road. The contracting firm is working for the complete unblocking of the road. For any problems you may encounter, call 112 and the Digital Commissariat!“, Writes the State Police.
Heavy rains have caused traffic problems in some secondary axes in Gjirokastra.
Stones and inerts have collapsed from the side slope on the axis towards Qafë e Çajupit, while near the village of Nivan in Zagori, rock formations have collapsed, currently blocking traffic.
Drivers of vehicles that have crossed the axis today have described the situation of the slopes on both axes as unstable and dangerous as there are rock masses with non-static base.
The axis is crossed by a few vehicles, however it is the only road that connects the deep area of Zagoria with the city. Due to rain and wind, there were defects in the network and long power outages.
