4. Øresund Bridge Visit

Max. 50 participants




09.20 Leave from Tivoli Congress Hotel

10.00 – 12.00 Arrival at Öresund Bridge

Grouping in 2:
1) Introduction to the bridge and O&M activities walking on a service road along the railway
2) Introduction and visit to flood protection project

The two groups will switch after 1 hour.

The Öresund Bridge is part of the Öresund Link connecting Denmark and Sweden and it opened to traffic in 2000. The bridge part of the link is approximately 8 km long and consist of 7 km approach bridges and the largest cable-stayed bridge in Europe carrying both road and rail. The two-level girder for the cable-stayed bridge is a composite truss in steel and concrete. The approach bridges have a two-level composite superstructure with a steel truss incorporating an upper concrete roadway deck and lower steel cross beams with a concrete railway containment.

Øresundsbro Konsortiet is protecting the four-kilometre-long tunnel against a surge. When the current projects have been completed in 2025, the tunnel part of the Øresund link will be able to withstand a 10,000-year storm surge projected up to 2050. The Øresund link between Denmark and Sweden was designed to withstand a 10,000-year storm surge when it was first inaugurated in 2000. But climate projections have changed since then. According to new climate models, we can expect to see more frequent and more powerful storm surges. The current projects therefore involve building new dikes and a concrete wall to protect the tunnel stretch of the link.

12.00 – 13.00 Lunch (sandwich).

13:00 Bus return to Tivoli Congress Hotel

No specific safety equipment is needed – safety helmet and vest will be provided on site. Please wear clothes suitable for the weather and practical footwear that allow for walking on grating panels.

Due to aging and fatigue problems on the existing bridge over Storstrømmen it was decided to build a new bridge with two highspeed railtracks, a two lane local road and a combined pedestrian/cycle path. The total length of the bridge is about 4000 meters.
