Ice Road Being Planned Between Haapsalu and Noarootsi in West Estonia

Due to the planning of an ice road in Haapsalu Bay the Estonian Maritime Administration (MA) will temporarily close vessel traffic on the basis of an application submitted by the Estonian Road Administration (RA).

By a decision of the Director General of the MA, as of 19 February 2018, 00:00 hrs, vessel traffic is prohibited in Haapsalu Bay south of Seasaar Island and east of Rohuk├╝la-Sviby fairway.

In order to prepare an ice road, the RA will have to carefully examine the ice conditions in the area and ascertain that the ice sheet is at least 24 cm thick along the whole route. The announcement of the ice road being opened will be made by the RA.

At the moment, no ice roads are officially declared open.
