National Highway decided to restrict traffic in Pino Hachado, one of the border crossings between Neuquén and Chile. The head of Migrations in Neuquén, Gustavo Sueldo, spoke with RÍO NEGRO RADIO to inform about the state of the road and when circulation will return.

“Traffic will be closed throughout the day, first of all, at kilometer 48 from Pampa de los Vientos to the Center of the Border, that is, the last kilometers to reach the limit,” said the head of the portfolio. He explained that the decision is due to the possibility of stone fall and snow accumulation.

Salary pointed out that there are no stranded vehicles, since Vialidad arranged operations to avoid further inconvenience: «What is done is that all the people who have been stranded for some reason, between steps, are accompanied to the respective step. It’s the first thing we do.”
