After the anger about delays on the Brenner autobahn due to urgent renovation work on the Lueg bridge, another section of the autobahn border in Tyrol urgently needs to be renovated – and of all things at the beginning of the autumn holidays and before a long weekend. After the vehicle fire on the A12 Inntal autobahn near Ebbs on Wednesday, Asfinag has to block parts of the road near Kiefersfelden on Friday. The repair measures are “inevitable”.
The vehicle fire after the collision of a mobile home and a van caused “massive damage to the roadway of the Inntalautobahn”, Asfinag announced on Thursday afternoon. Therefore, immediate action is required. “For road users, this means that from 7.30 a.m. until probably noon, only one lane will be available in the direction of Innsbruck. So there may be traffic delays during this time,” it said in a broadcast. Traffic safety must be guaranteed, and if possible before the long weekend, “so that there will be no delays in travel in the coming days”. Vehicle occupants were able to save themselves -year-old German had a defect and started smoking. A mobile home then crashed into the vehicle and also caught fire. Miraculously, nobody was hurt.
