New operating hours for bridges & locks in Friesland

Good news! The province of Fryslân and the municipalities have jointly decided to adjust the operating hours of bridges and locks in Friesland as of 1 May. With this they want to limit the crowds at peak times and ensure a better traffic flow. This decision will improve safety on the water. Thanks to the new operating hours, the long-awaited water sports season will finally start.

We are really looking forward to it and hopefully you do too. Below you will find the new operating hours from May 1th.
