To connect Scandinavia with Germany, the world’s longest immersed tunnel will be built. The Fehmarnbelt will close a major gap in the European transport network while fostering the development of new nature and recreational landscapes.
To manage costs and the long-term effects of dredging in highly dynamic estuarine areas, continued scientific research, modelling and analysis are indispensable.
After almost 2 years of extensive study of conceptual designs, the plans for the "missing" transportation link across the Fehmarnbelt from Denmark to Germany are ready to proceed. The present-day ferry takes 45 minutes plus waiting time. The link will take 7 to 10 minutes.
New environmental priorities demand the development of new German guidelines for the placement of dredged materials.
