Germany approves construction of undersea tunnel connecting Denmark with total cost of approximately $ 8.1 billion

On the 28th, the German government approved the construction of a subsea tunnel between Feynman Island in Germany and Lorland Island in Denmark.

The total project cost is approximately $ 8.1 billion.

  Reuters reports that the Fehmarn submarine tunnel is 19 kilometers away and is scheduled to be completed in 2024. However, the construction of the project has been opposed by German environmentalists and has been delayed.

  The subsea tunnel is designed with 4 top lanes and 2 railway tracks. Part of the project funding is provided by the European Union.

  According to the information released by the British website in the future timeline, the Feynman Subsea Tunnel was originally designed as a sea-crossing bridge, but in order to reduce the environmental impact and construction risks and the impact on weather factors, the project eventually led to a subsea tunnel.

  The design drawing shows that the subsea tunnel will be built on the existing seabed, surrounded by sand and gravel layers, and above it will be rock layers and new seabeds.

  Fehmarn is currently connected by road inland in Germany.

When the tunnel is completed, the time from the German cities of Hamburg, Bremen and Hanover to the Danish capital Copenhagen and the Swedish city Malmo will be significantly expanded.

For example, the time from Hamburg to Copenhagen by train is from 4.

5 hours to 3 hours.

  The travel time between Continental Europe and Scandinavia in Northern Europe will be slightly longer: previously it took 45 minutes for overlapping ferries to cross the Baltic Sea, and it will only take 10 minutes for cars to pass through the undersea tunnel and up to 7 minutes for trains.

  Reuters reported 南宁桑拿 that Danish companies responsible for project planning submitted their applications to the German government for the first time in 2013 and have now undergone two rounds of public comment in Germany.

The company’s existing 14-day evaluation of the project approval document issued by the German Schleswig-Holstein Transport Department, before deciding whether to sign the document.
