The lighting on the Öresund Bridge is turned off due to the energy crisis. In the future, the pylons will only light up during Advent, the Christmas holiday, New Year’s and flag days – and the highway lighting is turned off every night between one and five o’clock, the bridge consortium states in a press release.

In total, the shutdown is estimated to provide a saving of around 9 MWh per month during the winter months. However, the tunnel lighting and other safety-critical lighting for maritime and aviation will continue to be on.

“We want to demonstrate our participation in a situation where everyone contributes to saving energy. At the same time, we want to continue to spread light and Christmas spirit in a dark time,” says Bengt Hergart, who is the bridge’s construction director.

The Öresund Bridge’s Ukraine lighting will be lit every Sunday between 6-10 p.m. until the first Advent candle is lit.
