Changes in Navigation at Måløy Bridge

Due to maintenance work at Måløy bridge (Måløybrua) from 31 July to 31 December 2020, the vertical clearance in the eastern fairway will be reduced from 41 to 34 metres.

This means that large vessels may have to use the western fairway, which is now marked as a two-way fairway.

The Norwegian Coastal Administration (NCA) asks all vessels that plan to sail in the area to familiarize themselves with the changes prior to sailing, to actively listen to channel 16 and to use extra caution.

Temporary and lit warning signs have been set up in the relevant waters to show changes in sailing height. A patrol boat will be present as an extra security measure on the south side of Måløy bridge in the period up to 11 October 2020.

The Norwegian Public Roads Administration will carry out necessary maintenance on the Måløy bridge (Måløybrua) from 31 July 2020 to September 2021. The sailing draft will periodically be lower than normal and the sailing pattern must therefore be temporarily changed. The restrictions will apply in one fairway at a time.

Eastern fairway: 7 meters reduction of sailing height from 31 July - December 31, 2020.
Western fairway: 9 meters reduced sailing height from 22 February - 16 August, 2021.
