Since the dangerous situation has not been eliminated in Aghsu pass Kamran Aliyev calls on the inexperienced drivers not to use these roads and recommends to use alternative roads.

It snowed heavily in Aghsu, Shamakhy and Ismayilli regions yesterday, this caused serious problems for traffic on Baku-Shamakhy-Yevlakh highway.

In the aftermath of it, the drivers were obliged to use alternative Aghsu-Kurdamir highway.

Frozen roads in Gobustan and Shamakhy parts of Mughanli-Ismayilli highway and Baku-Shamakhy highway caused problems for traffic.
