Busy roads this weekend

Another long weekend is upon us, and the warnings of delays and jams on the roads have been renewed.

The prefecture of the French department of Haute Savoie says they’re expecting major delays at the Mont-Blanc Tunnel.

Other roads are likely to be busy, it says, such as the A40, A41N and the RN205. 

The same is true in Switzerland – major roads heading south could be slow as well as the Gotthard Tunnel.
