In order to protect our employees, but also visitors to the St. Pauli Elbtunnel from infections, the freight elevators will no longer be operated at weekends until further notice.
For safety reasons, the use of the passenger lifts must remain guaranteed and will provide barrier-free access. Operation during the week is reserved for commuters and the safety authorities in the event of an emergency. As there are currently no large streams of visitors on weekdays, users can spread out over a larger area.
The tunnel is still passable for 24 hours through the passenger lifts and stairs. Please be considerate of each other during these times.
Information - St. Pauli Elbtunnel will be closed for the weekend
Dear Colleagues and Business Partners,
On March 13, the German Federal Government announced specific measures to limit the spread of COVID-19. At the same time, the German Chancellor called on important industrial sectors – including the ports – to continue their operations. The Mayor of Hamburg has personally stressed to the management of the Hamburg Port Authority (HPA) the utmost importance of the port, especially in these times, as a central economic and logistical hub.
The Port of Hamburg, and especially the HPA, accepts its responsibility and makes it a top priority for our port to remain fully operational in the best interest of the population.
The fairway adjustment is the most significant strategic project for the Port of Hamburg. The expansion of the fairway can begin. The relevant supplementary planning process has now been performed and was completed on 23 August 2018, with the provision of a resolution.
We explain the fairway adjustment here and introduce the individual sub-projects.
