Thousands stuck in Gotthard jam
Thousands of motorists were stuck in a major jam yesterday trying to get through the Gotthard Tunnel.
An accident in the tunnel in the early afternoon between a truck and a car meant the route had to be closed in both directions.
Traffic is already avoiding the San Bernardino tunnel due to works – and many of the passes have been closed for the last couple of days due to snowfall.
The Gotthard is one of the few routes through the Alps at the moment.
One person was injured in the accident. The tunnel reopened at around 5pm
