SOUND DESIGN

The construction of the Storebaelt link between Denmark's two main islands, Zealand and Funen, has provided valuable experience for the similar Oresund link between Denmark and Sweden. A 4km immersed tube tunnel will link a 430m long artificial peninsula on the Danish coast to a pair of artificial islands. These islands will be joined by a low bridge, then the link will continue on a 7km bridge including an elevated cable-stayed section with a 490m span for shipping. Particular attention is being paid to the environmental impact of the link. Details are given of the precautions being taken to avoid pollution.
