Topic: It’s really windy. Think twice before you get caught on the Storebælt Bridge

Did you know that….

  • winds have to reach 25 m/s before the bridge is closed?
  • the bridge has been closed for 22 hours due to overturned wind-vulnerable vehicles?
  • wind-vulnerable vehicles are often caravans, high-sided trailers, lorries with or without light loads and articulated HGVs?
  • when the wind strength reaches 10 m/s, drivers of wind-vulnerable vehicles must take particular care when crossing the bridge?
  • strong gusts of wind can occur at the pylons and anchor blocks?
