The area around the bridge is a construction site for the new bridge 'Hisingsbron'. There will be times when it is not possible to pass under the bridge.

The bascule span has a width of 20m and a vertical clearance at MW of 18,3 m. This span is only to be used when approval has been given from the bridge.
The maximal horizontal clearence has been reduced from 16,5 meters to 13,4 meters during the construction of the new bridge.

The both side spans are closed for all marine trafic. 

NB! For ships that have the possibility to lower the air draught to avoid opening of bridge should do so, to avoid traffic problems in the central of Göteborg.
