Due to the pandemic of the coronavirus in the world, the recommendations of the competent authorities are that citizens should move as little as possible to prevent the spread of the virus, which makes the A1 highway in Bosnia and Herzegovina’s capital Sarajevo almost empty.
Along the A1 motorway, only a few cars can be seen. According to Dnevni Avaz, in the past period, Federal Highway Company recorded a decrease in the traffic of vehicles on the A1 motorway.
“In March, there was a 30.55 percent drop in vehicle traffic compared to the same month last year, which is about 300,000 vehicles less on the road,” was stated by the Federal Highways.
They point out that in the second half of March, when the coronavirus pandemic occurred, there was an evident average drop in vehicle traffic of 60 percent compared to the same period last year.
In total, in the first three months of 2020, there were 2,369,545 vehicles on the A1 highway.
The fact that the citizens are conscientious and respect the recommendations of the competent authorities is proof that there are no more crowds even in front of the toll booths.
All sections on the A1 motorway are passable and the toll system is running smoothly.
The Federal Highways point out that they have taken all necessary precautions. Workers adhere to the recommended safety measures issued by the Federal Institute of Public Health.
