No more ice roads to the islands this winter, says Maritime Administration ({{commentsTotal}})

The Estonian Maritime Administration decided on Wednesday to reopen maritime traffic routes where in colder winters ice roads would make it possible to drive out to the islands. This winter is too warm, and the ice not strong enough.

When in January temperatures were very low, the Road Administration requested to halt maritime traffic where ice roads could be established. Considering weather forecasts at that time, beginning with the preparation of the ice roads made sense.

But as the weather has changed and temperatures have risen high enough to make the ice unstable, the Maritime Administration decided to allow maritime traffic between the Virtsu-Kuivastu (Saaremaa), Rohuküla-Heltermaa (Hiiumaa) and Sõru-Triigi (Hiiumaa-Saaremaa) routes.

The smaller islands and peninsulas of Kihnu, Vormsi and Pinukse are also open again.
