  • The unfavourable hours on Friday will be from 3:00 p.m. to midnight.
  • The unfavourable hours on Saturday will be from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • The unfavourable hours for Sunday will be from 6 p.m. to midnight.
  • The unfavourable hours for Monday will be from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Daily Traffic Problem Details

Friday June 28, 2024

In the early afternoon there will be significant movements of long-distance vehicles that will cause high intensities and traffic problems in the EXIT direction of the large urban centres and also on the main access roads to the coastal, and tourist areas, these becoming more accentuated as the afternoon progresses and in the late afternoon-evening in the destination areas. To these outward movements, there will also be outbound movements at the beginning of the weekend, mainly to coastal areas and second homes. Exits from large urban centres and access to coastal tourist areas will be conflictive in the afternoon. For this reason, on this day, during the afternoon and evening, traffic planning and regulation measures will be installed to facilitate the circulation of vehicles in the most conflictive areas. The unfavourable hours on Friday will be from 3:00 p.m. to midnight.

Saturday June 29, 2024

From the early hours of the morning, intense traffic will continue in the EXIT direction of the large urban centres and on access roads to the coast, with high traffic intensities and traffic jams, until late in the morning in the destination areas. Traffic regulation and management measures will be implemented during the morning to facilitate the exit of vehicles from large urban centres and access to the coast and beach areas. The unfavourable hours on Saturday will be from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Sunday June 30, 2024

The access roads to the coast, beaches and coastal areas will be problematic in the morning, and in the afternoon the RETURN of those who have enjoyed the weekend will begin, with high traffic intensities and circulation problems on the main communication roads that channel all the return movement from the beach areas and second homes, towards the accesses of the large urban centres. On this day, traffic planning and regulation measures will be installed during the afternoon and evening to encourage the entry of vehicles into large urban centres. The unfavourable hours for Sunday will be from 6 p.m. to midnight.

Monday, July 1, 2024

In the early hours of the morning there will be high traffic intensities in the EXIT direction of the large urban centres, due to the beginning on this day of the tourist season for apartments, hotels and places of residence for the month of July. These movements in the outbound direction will be joined by those that usually occur during rush hour for departure/return to large urban centres because it is a working day. Also, on this holiday day in the month of July, access to the coast and the roads that connect coastal towns with access to beaches will be conflictive in the morning. The unfavourable hours for Monday will be from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.

General Driving Advice

As always during holiday times, you should try to avoid the busiest times, and in any case you should allow extra time for your journey and plan the route ahead of leaving. You must always abide by traffic laws, including those of speed and patience, and avoid alcohol or drugs in any case if you are driving. The only safe limit is zero. You should also exercise patience with other road users who may not be aware of the locations they are driving and could make seemingly simple mistakes. Always check the live traffic situation on the roads, which you can do by following the links on the front page of the N332 Website, near the bottom of the page.
