Please note: Remember, if you cross the Øresund Bridge with hazardous goods, there are certain rules you need to follow.
Special transport across the Øresund Bridge requires permission from the authorities. In Denmark, this is the police. In Sweden it is
Gatukontoret Malmö Stad if the transportation takes place within Malmö municipality's borders
Trafikverket Region Syd, if the transportation takes place outside Malmö municipality's borders.
You must notify the Øresund Bridge's Traffic Centre of your arrival at least two hours beforehand. The telephone number is +45 33 41 65 91.
At the toll station, you must produce your authorisation and give the size of your transport and the time window.
When can I cross?
Special transport can take place during restricted time windows in order to minimise inconvenience to other traffic on the Øresund Bridge. Please note that the time window with the highest number is determined by the transport's length and width.
If you arrive at the Øresund Bridge outside the allocated time windows, you can use the waiting areas on the Danish and Swedish sides. Contact the Copenhagen police in Denmark or Gatukontoret Malmö Stad in Sweden.
* If both W > 3.50 m and L > 30 m two warning vehicles are required
** The warning vehicles must drive side by side in order to prevent overtaking in the tunnel
*** The warning vehicles must drive side by side in order to prevent overtaking during the entire trip across the link.
