BREMERHAVEN. Following the steel swing bridge accident in April 2021, long-term detours through the city were the result, in order to get to Columbusinsel. Meanwhile, the “ColumbusHopper” has taken over the task of providing a temporary link until a new bridge is opened. The ferry link was inaugurated by Dr Claudia Schilling, Bremen Senator for Science and Ports, on 25 April. The first vehicle to test the service was a bremenports lorry before the ferry was open to works traffic.
