Fehmarn tunnel's sister projects

In 2009, the Danish parliament and the German Bundestag ratified the State treaty between Denmark and Germany, which forms the basis for the establishment of the Fehmarnbelt link. In addition to the 18 km long tunnel, the project also provides connections to the rail and road network on the Danish and German sides.

Project partners for connecting the road and rail network to the tunnel 

While Femern A/S is responsible for planning and building the immersed tunnel, the company’s project partners in Denmark and Germany are responsible for the separate construction projects on land.
