Motor traffic on the 18-72 km of Pshaveli-Abano-Omalo road was closed due to heavy snowfall. All vehicular movement was prohibited on this section of the road.

As the Roads Department of the Georgian Regional Development and Infrastructure Ministry told Trend, due to heavy snow restrictions were made on the Cross Pass.

The movement in the direction of Russia was suspended. Snow removal is underway on the site.

Movement of trailer, semi-trailer vehicles and buses with a capacity of more than 30 seats is prohibited in this section of the road.

Certain restrictions are also applied to the Rikoti Pass, however, according to the Roads Department, it is due to road repair works, which are underway there.
