Traffic jams expected on Italian, German, Austrian and Swiss motorways over Easter

During the long Easter weekend (28.03–1.04), there is a high likelihood of traffic jams, especially on German motorways. Delays can also be expected on popular holiday routes in Austria, Switzerland and Italy.

Maundy Thursday is one of the five days in the year when the volume of traffic on German roads is the highest, and big traffic jams are also very likely this Thursday. The situation on the roads is not expected to improve much on Good Friday and Holy Saturday, but the volume of traffic on motorways is likely to decline on Easter Sunday. According to ADAC, delays are likely to increase on Easter Monday and in the following days which coincide with the end of Easter holidays in the dederal states of Hamburg, Bremen, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Lower Saxony, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saxony-Anhalt.

Currently in Germany there are 1,130 motorway sections where roadworks are underway, which may occasionally cause traffic jams there, especially during heavy traffic.
