The Fehmarnbelt tunnel will remove a bottleneck, reduce travel time and strengthen links between Scandinavia and Central Europe.
When the Fehmarnbelt tunnel is completed, the journey between Rødbyhavn and Puttgarden will take 7 minutes by train and 10 minutes by car.
The Fehmarnbelt Fixed Link is part of a greener traffic corridor in Europe and will boost the transport of freight by electric trains.
Femern A/S is establishing a large 42-hectare stone reef close to the German island of Fehmarn. The reef will be established as part of the construction of the Fehmarnbelt tunnel and will become a new habitat for a wide variety of flora and fauna. Femern A/S is currently surveying the market to get information on availability of suitable stones for the purpose.
