Banedanmark estimates that it will take up to six months to repair the bridge, meaning that rail services to northern Jutland will be suspended and replaced with buses. No-one was injured in the accident with a miscommunication between the bridge operator and ship captain suspected as the cause. Trains stranded north of the bridge will be sailed to Gothenburg from Fredrikshavn and returned to Copenhagen via the Øresund link.
