The carrier reported that the Arriva buses in Groningen and Friesland have been operating again since 12:00. Qbuzz buses restarted between 12:00 and 13:00 hours.

The situation is on the road

Jos Wortelboer of the Nieuwe Pekela Salt Depot says that the road conditions in our county are very variable. “The road conditions are generally better in the northern part than in the southern part. There is also more snow drifting on the eastern side,” says Wortelboer.

You have to be careful, because from moment to moment you drive through the dunes. There are snow dunes 1 meter high in Ter Apel direction.

“It is no longer safe to drive on”

The Qbuzz buses stopped on Sunday evening at 9:00 pm due to the continuing winter weather. Trains stopped at 6 pm.

“Due to the weather conditions, it is no longer safe to drive,” said Qbuzz bus operator.

Trains run from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM

Arriva trains ran from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Sunday, while trains across the Netherlands were almost halted for the day.

The weather is causing more and more problems in infrastructure and equipment. The company spokesman explained the option to stop driving, snow continues to rise, which is not conducive to running trains.

Arriva buses were not running nearly all of the Sunday.
