The Afsluitdijk was closed on Tuesday morning in the direction of Friesland after an accident with a truck. According to Rijkswaterstaat, the vehicle hit the crash barrier. It is expected that the Afsluitdijk will remain closed for some time due to salvage work and repair of the crash barrier.
Due to the accident, the cars behind the truck had nowhere to go. Ultimately, a small crane had to be used to slide the center barrier aside, allowing the enclosed cars to continue on their way.

Rijkswaterstaat also reports that sliding the central barrier to the side makes it easier for the recovery company to reach the truck. The recovery company is from Friesland and is currently driving on the ‘wrong’ side of the road. The Afsluitdijk is expected to remain closed all morning.
There are traffic jams in both directions on the A7. Traffic is advised to drive via the N307 and the A6.
