Late Tuesday afternoon, traffic was disrupted on highway 9 near Urjala after one lane was closed following a collision between two cars. Further north on highway 3 in the southern suburbs of Tampere an accident delayed traffic for a time.
Earlier in the afternoon a fully loaded truck collided with a bus leading to a three-hour long closure of the southbound carriageway on highway 4 at Orimattila to the south of Lahti. No injuries were reported but traffic was diverted for a time.
The heavy snowfall is moving northwards into central areas. A thaw in temperatures in the south is making some roads very slippery.
