Albanian capital, Tirana, woke up on Thursday morning covered by a thick layer
of snow that hampered vehicles circulation due to the presence of ice on the
streets. Some 1200 City Hall employees worked during night hours cleaning the
roads and pouring salt on the asphalt to avoid vehicles sliding. Their work resulted
a blessing for the citizens that were able to walk on the street without facing
the risk of injuries due to the fall on ice.
Tirana Mayor, Erion Veliaj addressed a message to the citizens advising them to
be careful while moving on foot or with their vehicles.
City Hall employees worked all night clearing the snow from the streets and
pouring salt to avoid the ice on the asphalt. I want to advise every Tirana citizen
to be careful while walking on foot or even while driving his car," said
City Hall informed the citizens that every street is passable by pedestrians
and vehicles despite the presence of snow and ice layers.
