Fehmarn Belt Bridge

The Fehmarn Belt Bridge, Baltic Sea

Fehmarnbelt-Querung, Ostsee

 

When completed in 2018 the Fehmarn Belt Bridge will stretch 11.8 miles and connect the German island of Fehmarn with the Danish island of Lolland at an estimated cost of $2.2 billion. Initial plans show the bridge will be constructed with 3 cable-stayed spans each approximately 2,375ft long and supported by four 918ft tall pillars giving 213ft of vertical clearance beneath.

 

The proposed bridge has been controversial with opposition from businesses and conservationists who fear it may damage local wildlife.
