New routeing provide traffic changes

New routeing provide traffic changes

14-09-2020 12:00:00

This summer, new shipping routes were established in Skagerrak and Kattegat. The purpose is to create more predictable traffic patterns and separate oncoming ship traffic better. The first analyses indicate that the routeing systems work as intended.

On some sections of the new shipping routes, so-called traffic separation schemes were introduced in order to simplify navigation and help prevent ship collisions. One example is the traffic separation scheme around Skagen.

The pictures aboce show how the ships sailed around Skagen during the first week with the new routes. They clearly illustrate the change that immediately occurs in the ships' sailing patterns when routes change. The distance between oncoming traffic has increased and the sailing patterns are more predictable.

In the video below, you can see how the ships are sailing around Skagen after the routeing systems have become effective. The video show how the ships sailed in the period from 6 September to 9 September 2020.
