THE HAGUE - Holidaymakers in the Alps must note that the Brenner Pass between Austria and Italy has been closed for a few hours. As of 06:30, some explosives from the Second World War will be harmless in the area.
The A22 and the SS12 are closed in both directions between Sterzing and Brixen in the morning. Train traffic is also quiet. The ANWB advises holidaymakers to take into account their planning. The closing of the Brenner pass will probably take about 10 o'clock.
