INVESTIGATING THE ALTERNATIVES FOR A DENMARK TO SWEDEN TUNNEL

The article discusses investigations being made into the possible construction of submerged concrete tunnels between Denmark and Sweden. A possible site would be at the narrowest part of the sound between Helsingor and Helsingborg with a width of about 5 km and a water depth of about 40 M. Three alternative locations for a railway tunnel link are shown. For a single track an asymmetrical oval section with a duct for services and evacuation has been proposed while for a double track the section would be rectangular with an intermediate wall. A 5400 M road tunnel north of the proposed rail tunnel locations is also detailed. The cross-section would be symmetrical with air ducts beside the traffic tunnels.
