As a result of block checks of lorries in Tyrol, on the Austrian border, traffic on the A93 is congested. According to the police, the traffic jam on the Inntal motorway between Brannenburg and Kiefersfelden is about ten kilometres long.
Today is the third block check at the border crossing in Kufstein this month. Just like last Friday, the traffic restriction caused congestion on the Bavarian motorway.
