We just past this accident a bit earlier on the via rapida.
The traffic congestion on the expressway, which the JM announced recently, is due to a chain crash involving six vehicles.
The incident occurred around 11 o’clock in the direction of Caniço – Funchal, and forced the closure of the two routes.
The cars are being diverted to the old airport road in São Gonçalo.
At the moment there is a big ‘traffic jam’ on the premises but, as we have learned, the accident resulted only in material damage.
