Around ten police teams are currently on site, including local, federal and highway police teams.

MDespite the entry into force of traffic restrictions around the Baraque Fraiture on Saturday, the site is stormed by tourists at the start of the weekend, indicates the Famenne-Ardenne police area. “An influx unworthy of the population,” commented Commissioner Marc Antoine.

The crowds of the last few days had led the municipal college of Vielsalm to adopt a whole series of measures aimed at limiting traffic around the tourist site of Baraque Fraiture: ban on access to the ski slope, roads closed including the N30 connecting La Baraque and Manhay, villages accessible by local traffic only, parking prohibited, etc. In application since Saturday morning, these restrictions have not prevented tourists from going there en masse, causing major traffic problems.

“We have taken the decision to close the access ramp from the E25 towards Luxembourg, and we are considering the possibility of doing the same in the direction of Liège”, explains Commissioner Marc Antoine. “It is an influx unworthy of the population. People don’t respect anything, there are cars all over the place. It rolls in step and motorists do not know how to park. The inhabitants of the villages suffer from the influx of people who have nothing to do there. Some come from the Netherlands. “
