Catalonia: a change in Sunday HGV traffic restrictions
The new measure will take effect on Sunday, April 24 by virtue of the regulation of the Catalan Road Traffic Service, which introduces HGV traffic restrictions for 2022.
The regulation amends the restrictions that apply on the AP-7 between KP 5, at Girona-Norte and KP 216 in El Vendrell: the restrictions will not apply every Sunday, but only on Sundays when additional lanes are open in the opposite direction. On these days, lorries will only be able to drive along the right-hand lane with a maximum speed of 80 kph.
❗ In addition, on the following three days from 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM lorries will not be able to use the AP-7 between KP 84.5 and 281 in both directions: on Sunday, June 26, Monday, August 15 and Monday, September 26.
As regards the restrictions in the Holy Week, owing to a delay in the entry into force of the regulation for 2022, the restrictions for 2021 are still in effect, which means that on April 17, lorries will still have to drive along the right-hand lane at a maximum speed of 80 kph.
