A column on the German border of 60 KM

A column on the German border of 60 KM, waiting According to German Bild, Germans can only enter Poland with special permission. Police figures are astounding – the column’s length was almost 60 kilometers at one point and the border waited up to 30 hours Cars and trucks seeking to enter eastern EU member states have stalled for tens of kilometers in columns on Wednesday and are waiting all day due to border restrictions introduced to curb the spread of coronaviruses. European transport ministers are scheduled to hold a video conference Wednesday on the issue.

Trucks at the Polish Jedrzychowice border crossing had to wait 30 hours and passenger vehicles 16 hours, said Joanna Konieczniak of the Polish Border Police. Poland temporarily introduced border controls on Sunday. On the Polish-Czech border, 20 hours were expected this morning in the town of Cieszyn / Cesky Tešin. The vehicle column was also on the Polish border with Lithuania for hours. According to German Bild, Germans can only enter Poland with special permission. The police figures are staggering – the column length was almost 60 kilometers at one point, and it could last up to 30 hours on the border! Poland has therefore allowed road traffic at the four pedestrian crossings to reduce traffic congestion.

Moreover, several new border crossings have been opened in the Czech Republic and Lithuania. In Austria, traffic jams have increased to 30 kilometers at a key crossing point towards Hungary, the day after Budapest closed the border, Austrian police said. The blockade came this morning as the Hungarian government temporarily opened the overnight border to free thousands of Romanians and many Bulgarians who wanted to return home from Western Europe through Hungary. But this so-called “Humanitarian Corridor” was only valid for citizens of both countries. Hungary did not release other drivers such as Ukrainians and Serbs. Austrian authorities have opened a temporary camp for travelers who remain trapped on the road. After the “humanitarian corridor” broke down at 5am, only Hungarian citizens and truck drivers were allowed to cross the border.Chat conversation endType a message…
