One of the largest construction projects ever in Europe is being completed in July when the Oeresund link between Denmark and Sweden is officially opened. The project is composed of a 4050 m long submerged tunnel to the 4055 m long artificial island that connects to a 7845 m long, 50-span bridge to complete the 15.8 km Oeresund road and rail link that carries both a highway and railway. This project also marks the creation of a new European region with a population of 3.5 million. Basically, the system consists of regular 20-minute interval services running not only from Copenhagen to Malmo but extending beyond, deep into the region. These will be supplemented by a range of complementary regional and long distance services.
