The convoy is on the section between the Vågslidtunnel and the Haukelitunnel, the road traffic center informs.

Several mountain passes are closed. Among the few that are open is the E16 over Filefjell, but there is a danger that a column will be introduced at short notice.

– It should blow up well throughout the day. So it is a bit uncertain whether we will be able to open that much. It’s probably not the day to cross the mountain with the wind reported, says traffic operator Marianne Hove at the West Traffic Center to NTB.

– It may be that it opens up in periods, but you have to base yourself on the fact that there is reduced access between west and east, she says.

Strong wind and lots of snow.

Both strong winds and a lot of snow are forecast. People who have to cross the mountain should check if the road is open before setting out, and bring patience, fuel (or a fully charged car) and things like clothes, food and drink.
