Traffic to be heavy this weekend
Traffic is expected to be heavy over the long Easter weekend. Jams at the Gotthard Tunnel started yesterday – with queues of 5 km by midday.
Drivers had to wait for about an hour to get through. Heavy traffic is expected today and tomorrow as people head south in their thousands.
The same is true for the return on Monday. The traffic monitoring service Via Suisse warn the queues at the tunnel for northern bound traffic is always worse due to the road layout.
The advice is to try to get through the tunnel at quiet times, overnight or early morning.
