Filomena’s passage through the peninsula affects 700 roads in Spain, of which more than 100 are cut, one of which is on the main network, especially the C-25 in Girona when it passes through Vilobí D’Onyar. In addition, the DGT warns that the situation is very complicated in Aragon, warns of the existence of ice on many roads and urges extreme caution.
According to the General Directorate of Traffic, which asks not to travel, the situation is particularly complicated in Teruel, which has a “red level”, on the A23 which crosses the capital; in Zaragoza, on the Z40 (ring road) and the A2.
In Madrid, there are several problematic roads, according to DGT, which indicates that “practically all accesses to the capital are in red level due to the intense ice” and difficulties persist on the M607 and M40.

In addition, the General Directorate of Traffic has released two documents on the roads affected by the storm, one in which it talks about the condition of all roads and the other in which it focuses on large capacity, that is to say, highways and expressways.
