Many Germans travel into Denmark, just as many Danes drive west.
Right now there is close holiday traffic in several places in Denmark.
For TV 2, the South and South Jutland Police state that at around 1 pm there is a 2.5 kilometer queue on the motorway at the border crossing at Frøslev. There is one kilometer of queue at Kruså, and the same goes for the border crossing at Semen. The queue is 700 meters long at Padborg, while there is no queue at Pebersmark.
– It’s hard to say when the pressure will cease. It depends on how many Germans want to do this, says security chief Søren Strægaard to TV 2.
There is also close traffic at the Great Belt Bridge, and at 11 am the North Jutland Police reported that there was close traffic in the Limfjord Tunnel in a southbound direction.
Shortly before 13 o’clock, the traffic has started to loosen up again, Torben Larsen, the police chief of the North Jutland, tells TV 2.
– There is still a bit of queue in the pipe, but we expect traffic to slide fine again soon. There have been holiday rushes with many caravans heading south, he says.
Therefore, there is still a speed limit of 50 kilometers per hour on the way down the tunnel in a southbound direction.
– Traffic is moving from Zealand to Jutland. On Funen and especially on West Funen and around the Triangle area, there is a lot of queue, says Ruben Bay-Madsen from the Road Directorate.

Around 13 o’clock there is also a queue on the West Motorway in a western direction between Sorø and Korsør. In this connection, the South Zealand and Lolland-Falsters Police remind motorists not to use the emergency track.
– It’s not good behavior, police say.
In several places on the E45 there are currently queues.
Especially a southbound accident between Skanderborg and Vejle creates problems due to an accident at exit 56 Horsens V.
Left lanes are blocked and motorists have to slow down. Currently there is an extended travel time of up to 55 minutes. Normal traffic is expected during the afternoon, according to the Road Directorate.
