Tijdelijke wijziging in routebeschrijving ivm blokkade Col de la Forclaz

Vanwege de enorme hoeveelheid neerslag en grote temperatuurverschillen heeft er zaterdagochtend 13 januari een grote aardverschuiving plaatsgevonden op de weg van de col de la Forclaz - dat is de internationale verbinding van Martigny (Zwitserland) naar Chamonix (Frankrijk) en ook naar Finhaut. Gezien de grote werkzaamheden die noodzakelijk zijn om de weg te kunnen openen, houden we er rekening mee dat de route tot zeker begin maart gesloten zal blijven.
