The situation in Bulgaria is slowly returning to normal after heavy snowfall on Monday closed roads in the west of the country and led to flight delays at the Sofia airport.
All roads in the country are open, though restrictions for trucks are in place in certain areas, the Bulgarian National Television (BNT) reported on Tuesday morning. Trucks of over 10 tonnes are ordered off the road in the region of Silistra and Haskovo. The border checkpoints with Greece and FYROM are open.
Danube bridge is closed for vehicles over 7.5 tonnes. The Danube remains completely frozen near Silistra, in northeastern Bulgaria, as the ice floe is 90% at Vidin and Ruse. The ferry lines at Oryahovo, Vidin and Silistra are closed. The cargo handling operations of all ports along the Danube have been drastically cut, BNT reported.
On Monday a flight to the Greek capital Athens was called off and several flights were delayed, the Sofia Airport said. Two flights were redirected to the airports of Burgas and Plovdiv.
