Road 36 under construction from 24.04.2019
ROAD WORKS - ÞINGVALLAVEGUR (36) through Þingvellir National park
The Icelandic Road and Coastal Administration (IRCA) is doing improvements of the main road, Þingvallavegur (36), that passes through Þingvellir National park, between the Service Centre in Þingvellir and the intersection with Vallavegur (361). While Þingvallavegur (36) is closed it is possible to use Vallavegur (361) to pass east through Þingvellir National park.
Work will begin on wednesday 24.04.2019, when Þingvallavegur (36) east of the park´s Service centre will be closed for all traffic. The Service center in Þingvellir will be accessible.
Some improvements to Vallavegur (361) have been made but IRCA points out that the road is narrow and not suitable for very large cars and busses. ICRA urges travel agents to use smaller busses on this road while Þingvallavegur (36) is closed.
