Trailers, semi-trailers and vehicles with more than 30 seats are prohibited from driving on the S-3 between Gudauri and Kobi, the Road Department announced on Tuesday.

Other types of vehicles are allowed. The Road Department has sent machinery to clear the road of snow.

The S-3 Mtskheta-Stepantsminda-Larsi road, also known as the Georgian Military Highway, connects Georgia’s former capital Mtskheta, just north of Tbilisi, with the border crossing at Lars and the Russian republic North Ossetia.
