Istanbul-Ankara highway closed due to heavy snowfall


The Istanbul-Ankara Trans-European Highway (TEM) and the D-100 highway were closed to traffic after heavy snowfall and blizzards across Turkey on Sunday.

According to a statement from the General Directorate of Highways, the two highways have been closed and everyone is asked to avoid moving.

Ankara Governor Vasip Şahin noted that vehicles already on the road will be towed to designated areas and drivers will be taken to designated places.

Istanbul Governor Ali Yerlikaya also made a statement, saying people should avoid heading to Ankara as roads between Düzce and Gerede districts have been closed due to heavy snowfall.

Earlier this week, 2,000 people were stranded on a major southern highway.
