Block clearance

We also remind you of the November block clearance that will be carried out at the Neu Kufstein border crossing by Austria. As part of the clearance, from the morning hours, trucks are passing through the border in groups of 250-300 vehicles. Since March of this year, an automatic traffic dosing system has been used for this purpose. Most often they cause kilometre-long queues on the German-Austrian border.

Here are the dates for the November block clearance: 

3 November (Tuesday),

5 November (Thursday),

12 November (Thursday),

19 November (Thursday),

26 November (Thursday).
