City Council drops Vágsbotnur ice rink plan
Tórshavn’s seasonal ice skating rink will not be set up in the Vágsbotnur marina square after all
The plan to set up an ice skating rink here at the Vágsbotnur marina square has been dropped
 

After consulting with city-centre retailers, Tórshavn City Council has decided against setting up its skating rink in Vágsbotnur.

Retailers said the traffic disruptions caused by moving the rink would severely restrict customer access to stores in the city centre.

“If retailers don’t want the ice rink in Vágsbotnur, we will reconsider our plans," Bogi Jacobsen, the City Council’s technical manager, said last night.

And today, mayor Annika Olsen confirmed that a new location will be found for the skating rink.

The decision to move the rink from its usual location outside the city hall to Vágsbotnur was part of a new urban development plan.
