Large ships can not use the so-called Oostroute through Amsterdam from Tuesday. As a result of the continuing and extreme heat, the metal of the bridges set out to such an extent that they are "locked" and can not open to let large ships through, a spokesperson for the municipality of Amsterdam said to ANP.

Cooling the bridges with water from the canals no longer helps. The 12 bridges will therefore remain closed until further notice.

Shipping and flight traffic is halted in the south of Limburg on Friday, because Defense's explosives ordnance disposal service will be detonating an aircraft bomb dating from World War II in Meerssen, ANP reports.

The bomb weighs 500 pounds and was found during excavation work along the Juliana Canal in mid-May. The shipping traffic in the Juliana Canal between Maastricht and Born will be halted on Friday. No planes may fly across this part of south Limburg on Friday.

Large container ship CSCL Jupiter is stuck on the Westerschelde near Bath, the Rijkswaterstaat announced. Shipping traffic is halted for at least the rest of the day, ANP reports.

The CSCL Jupiter is 366 meters long, according to the news wire. As it is currently outgoing tide, nothing can be done about the ship right away, a spokesperson for the Rijkswaterstaat said. At high tide around 8:00 p.m., the ship will be freed.

How the container ship came to be stranded is not yet clear. It was sailing from Antwerp to Hamburg.
