Traffic jams in Madrid on Monday back after the snowfall and with traffic restrictions due to contamination

The capital of Spain is, very little by little, recovering normality after the passage of the storm Filomena. One of the biggest problems you have is mobility, since it has just over half of the streets of Madrid open to traffic.

For this Monday, the Madrid City Council has activated scenario 1 of the Action Protocol for pollution episodes by nitrogen dioxide. This means limiting the speed of movement on the M-30 and on the access roads inside the M-40 in both directions to 70 kilometers per hour.

Consequently, the city council has strongly recommended using public transport, to such an extent that it will be free to take it until the Wednesday. However, there are delays and traffic jams in different parts of the city.

On the entrance roads to Madrid there are still retentions since this morning, especially on the M-30 and in the Valdemoro area. Further, on the A-6 the circulation is very slow, as well as the streets of the center of Madrid, where, for example, the concentration of cars on the Paseo de la Castellana is very large.

Calle Alcalá also registers important retentions, as well as some sections of the A-3 in the direction of the entrance to Madrid, and the M-23. And all of it despite the fact that the schools will not resume their face-to-face activity until Wednesday this week, so the situation may get worse.
