Madrid, May 16 (EFE) .- Road trips to leave Madrid since Friday have increased by 50 percent compared to those that occurred the previous week and are similar to those that were registered a weekend in May before to the pandemic, according to data from the General Directorate of Traffic (DGT).
Due to the increase in departures from the capital registered since Thursday, Traffic will enable this Sunday afternoon lanes in the opposite direction to the usual one on the Burgos highway (A-1), the Valencia highway (A-3) and the Extremadura highway (A-5), entering Madrid.
These are precisely the three roads that registered the most traffic problems this Saturday, although the complications affected practically all the routes out of the capital.
The DGT informs at 3:00 p.m. of an accident on the A-5, near Coslada, in the direction of the Barcelona highway (A-2), and of another in Barcelona, on the B-20, in the Barrio de Gracia towards the junction of Llobregat; as well as a third in Zaragoza, on the A-2, in Ariza, towards Madrid.
In addition, it recommends circulating with caution through two breakdowns, both in the province of Cuenca, one on the A-3, at the height of Minglanilla towards Valencia, and another in Cervera del Llano, towards Madrid.
The rest of the roads circulate normally.
