The public is advised not to use other access roads to the National Park because of risk of icy patches
Due to hail and icy patches, the Cabildo de Tenerifeâ€™s Department of Roads has issued a traffic warning.
The island government has closed the TF-21 road to traffic because of hail. The road is blocked from kilometres 34 to 53, which means access to Teide via La Esperanza is cut between Boca Tauce and El Portillo. Access to the National Park is not recommended using the other roads either particularly in shady areas first thing in the morning and late afternoon due to the low temperatures.
Today the Cabildoâ€™s road maintenance service, Servicio de ConservaciÃ³n de Carreteras, has been removing earth and rocks from some of the islandâ€™s roads caused by minor mudslides but none of these roads has been closed to traffic.
