Authorities closed the A2 motorway in Jerichower Land, Aug. 29, following a traffic accident. Emergency teams are responding to a fire at the scene, and have warned of a potential chemical threat. The incident occurred between the Theessen junction and Burg-Ost, in the direction of Hanover. The motorway is closed in both directions. Officials advise local residents to remain indoors with windows closed, to avoid contamination from the fire.
Transport disruptions are likely to continue for several hours. The road closure will likely lead to increased traffic and delays on alternative routes. Freight delays may impact logistics and business deliveries.
Avoid the area until authorities give the all-clear. Seek alternative routes and allow additional travel time to nearby destinations. Follow all security personnel instructions, including any evacuation orders. Consider moving to a well-ventilated area, especially if you suffer from a respiratory illness, such as asthma, or conditions that lead to increased risk from gas or smoke exposure. Eye and skin irritation are possible; flush irritated areas with copious amounts of clean water.
