Congestion Foreman

≪Review of each area≫

(1) South Hokkaido area

  • Although there was no major disruption in the weather with a maximum of nine consecutive holidays, traffic volume increased from last year, but there was no congestion.
  • In the provisional lane section, especially between Ochibe IC and Toyoura IC, there are many road closures due to winter accidents.

(2) Central area

  • Traffic has increased since last year as there was no major disruption in the weather with a maximum of nine consecutive holidays.
  • The area around the Kitahiroshima IC, which had predicted traffic congestion, was crowded at the exit every day from January 1 (Wed) to January 4 (Sat), and on January 3 (Fri) there was a maximum of about 1.0 km of traffic. Has occurred. In addition, traffic jams occurred four times due to accidents and broken cars.

(3) North Hokkaido area

  • Traffic has increased since last year as there was no major disruption in the weather with a maximum of nine consecutive holidays.
  • Regarding traffic congestion, there were two events that occurred at the exit IC that became a terminal due to traffic closure.
  • As there are many road accidents due to winter-type accidents between Asahikawa Takasu IC and Shibetsu Kenbuchi IC, which is a provisional lane section, please drive carefully and drive safely.

(4) Eastern Hokkaido area

  • Traffic has increased since last year as there was no major disruption in the weather with a maximum of nine consecutive holidays.
  • Doto Expressway had a traffic jam of up to 7.3km. This is probably due to the temporary concentration of vehicles that had avoided traffic due to an accident between the adjacent section Shimukappu IC and Tomamu IC, which occurred immediately before.
