Disruptions to bus services: "Challenges everywhere"

During the day, there have been several disruptions to local traffic along the coast caused by obstacles on the road and buses that got stuck.
"There seem to be challenges everywhere and the weather warning hasn't even come into force yet," says Nina Lindberg, communications manager for county traffic.

"Expect delays"

Tomorrow there is a great risk of continued disruptions.
"Delays are to be expected. It is up to each transport company to make the assessment of whether it is safe to continue driving and whether it is safe to drive," says Nina Lindberg.

Travelers are encouraged to keep an eye on traffic information on Länstrafiken's website.
