Significant difficulties at the Opacz junction. At the junction of the S8 and S2 routes, the truck hit the energy-intensive barriers and stopped across the road. Drivers heading towards the Konotopa junction got stuck in a traffic jam.
The General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways informs about the collision. In the communication of road workers, we read that before 9 a.m. a truck ran into energy-intensive barriers at the Opacz junction. “The exit slip road from S8 to S2 towards Konotopa has been blocked” – added.
Our reporter, Artur Węgrzynowicz, confirms that drivers are facing very serious difficulties at the junction, because the truck blocks both lanes. – Drivers of passenger cars have a place to try to avoid it, but a long queue of trucks has formed here, which will not fit. They blocked the road, he said. And describes that the drivers try to help each other in avoiding the obstacle, but it is very slow.
He also adds that the truck tractor “broke” in relation to the semi-trailer so that the cabin stood back to the direction of travel and stuck its left side into the semi-trailer frame. – It is so serious that without specialist help – firemen or road service – it is impossible to remove the effects of such an event – our reporter explains.
“There are no services on site yet,” our reporter says.
