Road between Poiso and Pico do Areeiro closed to traffic

Regional Road 202, which connects Poiso and Pico do Areeiro, was closed a few moments ago. This is one of the main road accesses to the highest point in Madeira, which today is painted white.

The hail and snow caused this area to be covered in white, motivating curiosity on the part of Madeirans.

The road closure took place minutes ago, according to reports from citizens at the scene. The Public Security Police will be requesting that vehicles that are above the ‘Abrigo do Poiso’ descend.
