Three rest areas on Austria's A12 motorway will have HGV parking restrictions in place until the end of the Christmas holiday period on January 6th.

The changes, announced just before Christmas, mean trucks will be able to park at the rest areas for no longer than 180 minutes between 10am and 3pm.

The three affected rest areas are as follows:

  • Rastplatz Münster Nord, km 35,71
  • Rastplatz Münster Süd, km 36,25
  • Rastplatz Weer Süd, km 55,00

It is said that the reason for the restriction is to prevent truck fleets occupying the rest area for several days over the Christmas holidays, thus reducing the already difficult parking situation for everyone else.
