Heavy snow closes Lanzhot border crossing to trucks

The Lanzhot border crossing on the Czech-Slovak border was closed to trucks on Thursday morning due to heavy snow in Slovakia and Hungary. Police said the decision was made in coordination with the Slovak authorities who reported severe traffic problems along the D2 highway. Trucks are reported to be blocking many roads and parking lots are bursting at the seams due to severe transport problems in Hungary. By the time the border crossing re-opened at 1pm there was a 4 km long line of trucks waiting to cross the border.
