Budapest, July 5 (MTI) – Trucks on their way to Austria have formed a 12km tailback at Hegyeshalom due to ad-hoc checks by Austrian authorities, a spokesman for regional police in north-western Hungary said on Tuesday afternoon.
The tailback at a point earlier in the day was 27km, said Tamás Füves. The waiting time for truck drivers is currently about 3 hours, the police said on its website.
Cars are being allowed through unimpeded but their passage continues to be slow, Füves said.
He asked car drivers to visit the police’s website police.hu for information on current waiting times at border crossing points.
