RTL Today - Possible traffic congestion: Romani-Evangelist convention ends this weekend

This Sunday afternoon, more than 2,000 caravans will leave the site of this year’s convention in the French Moselle region.

There may be difficulty driving across the areas of Saint-Avold, Faulquemont and Morhange. Police will help with traffic, but it is recommended to avoid this area throughout the remainder of Sunday.

More than half of the caravans present at the peak of the convention have left the site. This weekend 371 police officers, 12 firemen and various environmental protection groups were on site; they were a constant presence throughout the Romani-Evangelist convention this year.

Saturday evening at 6pm, authorities counted 2,417 caravans and camping cars in Grostenquin in the Moselle region in France – 1,578 less than the day before.

Road safety groups and police officers have been placed on main roads and strategic crossroads to prevent, as much as possible, any traffic congestion caused by the mass departure of caravans. Only small traffic jams have been reported in certain areas.
