On Monday April 15th until October 15th, a trial one-way traffic system will be put in place between Colonno and Ossuccio to hopefully alleviate the traffic problems associated with HGV's using this narrow stretch of road.
Heavy vehicles longer than 8.60 meters will travel in alternate one-way directions, starting from 6.30am to 2pm in the direction Colonno-Ossuccio and from 2pm to 6.30pm from Ossuccio to Colonno.
There will be exceptions for law enforcement, emergency vehicles, buses and vehicles carrying waste.
From 7.30pm to 6.30am there will be no restrictions.
It took almost two years of discussions, debates, protests but finally Anas has agreed to these traffic regulations.
At the same time Anas has ordered that the night-time closures of the tunnel from Cernobbio between 10pm and 6am to be extended to the whole week, starting Saturday April 13th.
