Shipping restrictions on Danube

RESTRICTIONS on shipping on the Bratislava part of the river Danube are being put in place for the Bush-Putin summit.

The State Shipping Administration issued the instruction to take effect from February 23 at 19:00 and last through to February 25, the TASR news agency reported.

Under the instruction, cargo and freight ships will not be allowed to sail through the restricted area. If need be, ships will have to anchor in nearby ports.

Passenger ship transportation in winter is significantly reduced and therefore no problems with passenger ships are anticipated.
