Due to maintenance work at Måløy Bridge in Vestland County, the sailing height in the eastern fairway is reduced to 34 metres. This is valid from 31 July 2020 to 20 June 2021.
Please note: Larger vessels must use the western fairway, making this temporarily a two-way fairway during this time-period.
We ask everyone who plan to sail in this area to get updates prior to voyage, and to listen actively on channel 16 and use extra caution when underway.
Contact information: Vessels can contact Holberg Shipping on telephone:
+47 919 08 552 or VHF Channel 16 for updated information.
Temporary and lit warning signs are in place to show the changes in sailing height in the fairway.
The changes on reduced sailing height are published in Notice to Mariners (Etterretning for Sjøfarende - EFS) no. 14/62130/2020. The changes in the plan for navigational aids are published in Notice to Seafarers (EFS) 15/62205/2020.
The Norwegian Public Roads Administration will carry out necessary maintenance on the Måløy bridge (Måløybrua) from 31 July 2020 to 30 November 2021. The sailing draft will periodically be lower than normal, thereby temporarily changing the sailing pattern in the fairway. The restrictions will apply in one fairway at a time.
Eastern fairway: reduction of sailing height to 34 meters from 31 July 2020 - 20 June 2021.
Western fairway: reduced sailing height to 33 meters from 21 June 2021 - 30 November 2021.
