Marked winter track
Form VK today:

Holmön får vinterväg

Det blir en vinterväg till Holmön. Det kommer enligt vad VK erfar regeringen att besluta i dag, torsdag.
Länsstyrelsen får uppdraget att staka ut och hålla vinterväg den tid på året Holmön inte går att trafikera med färja.

Regeringen ger uppdraget efter att länsstyrelsen i Västerbotten riktat en fråga om hur vägfrågan skall lösas.
Vintertrafiken till och från Holmön har de senaste åren stötts och blötts sedan Vägverket beslutade att man inte anser den är deras sak. Detta eftersom man ansett att vintervägen egentligen är en skoterled.
Frågan får nu alltså en tillfällig lösning och länsstyrelsen får uppdraget att staka ut vintervägen 2004 och 2005.
En förutsättning för en vinterväg är dock att det blir is, och enligt näringsdepartementet brukar isen komma till Trettonhelgen.
