Famous Iceland Pit Stop Closes

The roadside restaurant and gas station Brú in Hrútafjördur fjord, northwest Iceland, a regular pit stop for people traveling between north and south Iceland closed on Monday because the new Ring Road will not lead past the restaurant anymore.

According to news web strandir.is, oil company N1 plans to open a new roadside restaurant and gas station further up the fjord by the new Ring Road. That pit stop will also replace Stadarskáli, another famous pit stop near Brú.

On Monday the 54-year-long history of Brú came to an end, which used to be the largest work place in Baejarhreppur municipality. The cooperative Kaupfélag Hrútfirdinga in Bordeyri operated Brú during most of that time, but then oil company Olíufélagid (later N1) took over the operations.
