Highway near Sigulda in 'extreme' condition

Emergency conditions have developed on Vidzeme Highway (A2) from Vangaži to Sigulda on Friday, “Latvian State roads” said, recommending using other routes or postponing trips.

As a result of sustained heavy snowing and blizzard, the stretch from Vangaži to Sigulda is very difficult to get through.

It has already been reported that snow and ice are making driving conditions along the country's main and regional roads harder for much of the country's territory on Friday morning.

Weather forecasts show that some snowfall is expected throughout Latvia on Friday, while heavy snowing is expected on the Gulf of Riga coast in Vidzeme.

 “Latvian State roads” asks residents to report difficult driving conditions or other traffic and road condition-related observations by calling 80005555, as well as social media.
