Commuters on the A4 motorway were subjected to heavy traffic jams after an accident caused closures across two lanes.

According to traffic surveillance, the crash occurred at the Lankelz junction, close to the Esch/Lallange exit. Four people sustained injuries as a result.

Initial reports said two lanes were closed as a result of the incident, causing traffic to build up in the direction of Luxembourg City.

As of 7.30am, there were at least 4 kilometre-long traffic jams on the A13 between Sanem and Esch-sur-Alzette, while the B40, linking the A4 and Micheville with Belval, was also experiencing heavy traffic.
