On Sunday evening, several roads in different parts of the country were blocked by lorries, several media outlets, including BT and DR, write. The blockades occur after hauliers and truck drivers announced protests against a political agreement on a kilometer-based toll for trucks.
DR writes that some trucks have blocked a roundabout at the ferry terminal in Helsingør. Nordsjælland’s Police informs the media that, according to a report, three trucks are involved. But according to DR, which is on the scene, there are at least six trucks on the roads around the roundabout on Sunday evening after 10 p.m. They prevent cars that have just been driven by a ferry from getting out of the harbor area quickly.
Meanwhile, BT writes that trucks have blocked the border to Padborg at the E45 motorway. Warden Richard Borring from the Southern and Southern Jutland Police confirms to the media that an action is taking place.
“We have received a report that there are sporadic blockades on the motorway exits at the border with Germany”, he says to BT
The police received the report just after 9pm on Sunday evening. Richard Borring urges road users to pay extra attention in traffic.
On Twitter, the Copenhagen Police write that they are present in Amager at two motorway approaches to both Denmark and Sweden close to Kastrup Airport. This is because a number of trucks have tried to block traffic on the approaches.
“We enter into a dialogue with the drivers and investigate further”, wrote the Copenhagen Police on Sunday evening.
Uncertainty arose about the nationwide demonstration on Thursday, when the so-called Road Tax Committee, which consists of a group of Danish hauliers, was dissolved with immediate effect. The road tax committee acted as mediator between the demonstrators and the police.
In a press release, the group wrote that the message from the authorities initially stated that the demonstration could be carried out legally. But then the police changed their position. In a new assessment, according to the Road Tax Committee from the authorities, the demonstration would be illegal.
“Since we as a committee will exclusively stand behind legal democratic methods, the Road Tax Committee will be dissolved with immediate effect,” the group wrote in the press release.
