Heavy traffic warning for bank holiday weekend
06 December 2018 @ 22:24

OVER six million cars are expected to be on Spain's roads during the long weekend because of the bank holidays – today (Thursday) being 'Constitution Day', and Saturday, December 8 for the Immaculate Conception.

This year, workers – other than those in retail or catering – will not get their usual two days off for December 6 and 8, since the second of these falls on a Saturday, but many will take tomorrow (Friday) as annual leave and use the four-day weekend to go away for a short break or visit family members outside their home provinces.

Extra traffic police have been on duty since 15.00 yesterday and will remain in place until midnight this coming Sunday in light of increasing volumes of vehicles.

Motorways and major highways between large cities and popular coastal or countryside areas, particularly those with a high number of holiday homes, and ski slopes in the Sierra Nevada and northern Catalunya are likely to be exceptionally busy, with delays very probable.
