Studies on Thursday showed that despite the recent frost, ice conditions are currently insufficient to build the Noarootsi or Vormsi ice roads. The Transport Board plans to conduct another survey on these routes in about ten days, but the hope of building ice roads will start to disappear this year, ERR correspondent Juhan Hepner announced.In the current camera“.

On Thursday morning, a bad surprise awaited ice researchers in Haapsalu Bay. A thick layer of snow and warm seawater have not allowed the ice to grow in the last few weeks. The rise in seawater levels, which has since fallen to very low levels, means that water is now being pressed on ice in many places and in some places, despite the minus degrees, it is not possible to get through dry.

The ice in Haapsalu Bay is too thin.

“We were still hoping for a much better situation, because it has been really cold for two weeks. We thought that at least five or six centimeters of ice had been added to previous surveys. Unfortunately, we have to admit that at two measuring points the centimeters had become thinner and the other points have not frozen. The thinnest we found was 16 centimeters, ”said Hannes Vaidla, Head of the Transport Board.
