Closure of Athens-Lamia highway causes huge traffic jams


Snow led to long tailbacks just before the Malakasa junction on the Athens-Lamia national highway some 30 kilometers north of the capital on Monday. Heavy snowfall, rain and ice also caused problems on Parnitha and Pendeli mountains on the outskirts of the capital, with some stretches of roads there being closed off to traffic.
