Access to Areeiro remains closed to car traffic

ER202 remains closed, between Poiso and Pico do Areeiro, ‘cut off from traffic’ since last Friday, the 8th, following the ‘snowfall’ that ‘painted’ white the highest points of the island.

The snow that still lingers on the summit of the highest peaks also keeps the forest road connecting Areeiro and Eira do Serrado closed. In the case of this alternative access, under the responsibility of the Institute of Forests and Nature Conservation (IFCN), the closure to circulation occurs since the first Monday of this month 4th, at the time as a preventive measure motivated by the weather warnings when Filomena depression passed the region.
