The Danish Road Directorate warns of slippery roads despite clearing and salt


The police and the Danish Road Directorate recommend driving carefully on Tuesday morning, where it is slippery in many places.

Although snow and salt are being cleared across the country, there is still a risk of slippery roads on Tuesday morning.

This is what Mette Nedergaard, duty officer at the Danish Road Directorate, says.

– It is the circumstances with as much snow that we have received, then it is almost inevitable with slippery roads, she says.

According to the guard, there have been several traffic accidents in the Copenhagen area.

For example, there has been an accident on the Køge Bay Motorway, where a truck has been driven in the discount due to slippery roads. This is stated by the duty officer at Copenhagen’s Vestegns Politi.

During the morning, the truck will be removed, and two tracks will in that connection be blocked at exit 25 at Vallensbæk in a westerly direction. The lanes are expected to reopen at 9 p.m.

Several police districts also warn on Twitter about slippery roads and urge to drive carefully.

– If you are leaving this morning, drive carefully so that everyone arrives safely, East Jutland Police writes, among other things.

According to the duty officer at the Danish Road Directorate, the roads become less slippery as more people drive on them during the morning.

– It takes more traffic before it looks more reliable.

– But people must drive calmly, keep their distance and wear winter tires, says Mette Nedergaard.

She adds that the Danish Metrological Institute (DMI) has a warning about frost fog, which can mean a visibility of less than 100 meters.

According to DMI, the cold weather with ice and snow is soon over. On Tuesday, it will begin to be replaced by mild air from the Atlantic Ocean.
