It is the first big changeover day in the Danish holiday in the school summer holidays. Therefore, one must expect that there may be extra pressure on the Danish roads across the country.
It tells Nicholas Petersson, who is an officer in the Danish road directorate.
because of coronakrisen, the danes were invited to by the government to keep the summer holidays in Denmark.
It was uncertain whether it was possible to hold the summer break in the otherwise usually popular foreign holiday destinations.
- Since many danes choose to keep the summer vacation in Denmark, so we expect that there will be an additional pressure on the roads, says Nicholas Petersson.
- On the other hand, there are perhaps slightly fewer foreign cars, but we expect that there are more cars on the roads than normal, he says.
According to the Danish road directorate, it is expected that there will be most cars on the road, between the hours of 11 and 15 on Saturday.
- At the changeover day is it in the amount of time that people choose to run. It is typically where it begins to clump together on the roads across the country, says Nicholas Petersson.
Here reads the council, that one should wait to run until after the at 15, if you want to avoid long queues.
It is particularly by the major highways across the country, where the Danish road directorate expects the biggest traffic jams. Here is the E20 motorway across Funen and on the E45 in the triangle.
Nicholas Petersson predicts that you may experience an additional journey time of 20 minutes on the worst stretches.
- If there is an accident or another, so there may soon be a growing traffic jams, when there are so many cars on the roads, he explains.
