Special transports

Even especially long, wide or heavy vehicles can usually cross the Øresund Bridge. Special prices and conditions, however, apply – including special “time windows” when transport is permitted. Please note that, owing to the height in the tunnel, vehicles higher than 4.5 metres or wider than 7 metres cannot use the Øresund Link.
nIf the transportation vehicle falls within the "exceptional special transport" category in terms of its length, width or total weight only, the charges pertaining to exceptional special transports apply. The transporter's warning vehicles accompanying the transportation pay the normal standard price. Call +45 33 41 65 91 to book an escort vehicle. Book your escort vehicle no later than 3 pm.

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
  • Vägverket Region Skåne, 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. Click on the time window to view a schedule.

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.
