Spain's Directorate-General of Traffic (DGT) has temporarily closed the A-92 motorway between kilometre point 241, in Granada, and kilometre point 282, in Diezma, due to heavy snowfall. The road has been closed to traffic at Puerto de la Mora to allow snow ploughs to clear the carriageways.

The Guardia Civil has set up an alternative route along the A-308 Iznalloz-Darro road in order to alleviate the heavy traffic at this point on the dual carriageway.

Authorities have said that it is necessary to drive with caution in the area and advised drivers to consult road information at all times.
