Statement from CEO Claus F. Baunkjær, Femern A/S, concerning the Federal Administrative Court´s oral decision November 3.
We have set up a webcam that broadcasts via a livestream from the construction site of the Fehmarnbelt Tunnel construction site in Rødbyhavn on Lolland via a livestream.
A European connection
Along with the tunnel, the upgrading and expansion of the rail link between Ringsted and Lübeck will bring shorter and faster links regionally and between Scandinavia and central Europe. The Fehmarnbelt tunnel will create new opportunities for international freight transport. Once opened, freight trains between Hamburg and Scandinavia will be saved the 160 km detour via the current freight train route across the Great Belt.
A fixed link between Germany and Denmark will not be affected by inclement weather, waiting times or the need to make a reservation. Read more about your benefits here.
The construction of the tunnel between Denmark and Germany will be carried out in several phases over a number of years.
Tunnel construction at the Fehmarnbelt offers excellent opportunities for small and medium-sized companies to be sub-contractors on the project. You can find our two guides for subcontractors here.
79 standard reinforced concrete elements will be built at the tunnel factory on Lolland in Denmark. The production facility is expected to provide up to 3,000 jobs a year over the approximately eight and a half year long construction period.
The Fehmarnbelt tunnel will create one new region in Europe – the Fehmarnbelt region – with greater cohesion and increased competitiveness. Cross-border integration of the labour market will be increased.
The Fehmarnbelt project will be undertaken with the greatest possible respect for nature and the environment. This applies both during the construction work and the operation of the finished tunnel.
Since 2009, Femern A/S has kept people informed about the planned new tunnel link at its Information Centre in Burg on the German island of Fehmarn and in Rødbyhavn in Denmark. Find contact information, addresses and opening hours here.
