Restrictions on popular nature and hiking trails

Expand all questions

When considering the decision for establishing traffic restrictions:

  • Is the restriction justified.
  • what is the impact on both local inhabitants and other road users (for example, people who want to access places of natural beauty).
  • whether the already established 2-by-2 rule which allow for maximum of two people to be together and keeping a minimum of 2 metres apart with others, is not sufficient.

If the owner of the road is:

  • a rural municipality or a city then they will make the decision for the establishment of traffic restrictions.
  • the state, then the rural municipality or city must submit an application to the Road Administration in order to establish traffic restrictions.

Once the permit has been received, the information regarding traffic restrictions must be published before the restriction enters into force:

  • on the Road Administration's traffic information web application.
  • other public information channels such as local newspapers and rural municipality or city websites.
