Our Haugesund Department is now clarifying the consequences of later arrivals. It’s quite clear that the local area and central Haugesund will not be affected by these to any serious degree, but for some routes and postal codes alterations in the transport schedule may prove necessary. Possible alterations will be notified as soon as the consequences of later arrivals have been clarified.
Later arrivals may also affect outgoing traffics towards Eastern Norway and may also entail transport schedule alterations.
Our Department Manager in Haugesund is in close contact with the Public Roads Administration’s project manager and also works with production and capacity adjustments in the department. Please also see the Public Roads Administration’s website: www.vegvesen.no
