The tourist exchange in the second fortnight of January started with everything: according to what Autopistas de Buenos Aires reported to La Nación, from 0 to 12 they traveled to the Atlantic coast, on average, 40,554 vehicles per hour.
At noon this Saturday, there was traffic of 25,423 cars per hour on Highway 2 and 15,131 on Provincial Route 11 towards coastal cities. 19,343 vehicles circulated on highway 2 through Samborombón, and 6,080 through Maipú.
Highway 2 and Route 11 were at 11 with “heavy traffic in the direction of the Atlantic Coast”, as explained by the concession company.
Ricardo Lissalde, president of AUBASA, said that traffic improved this year since “it was possible to complete the double carriageway works of routes 11 and 56 that were transformed into highways, which generated a great impact on road safety, added to the fact that route 2 was demarcated in its entirety, and more assistance mobiles”.
Despite this, different users complained on social networks and were upset about how route 2 looked in the morning. “40 minutes of delays on route 2 on the way to the coast, no cause is seen, the cars grab the shoulder to move forward,” tweeted a user.
According to the National Meteorological Service, the maximum expected for today in Mar del Plata could be lower, around 30 degrees.
