PRELIMINARY ALIGNMENT STUDY OF THE KATTEGAT CONNECTION, DENMARK
LINKING THE NATION ACROSS KATTEGAT
With the Kattegat Connection, Denmark's capital island, Zealand, and the Jutland Peninsula could be directly connected.
Following the Danish Road Directorate's strategic analysis of a potential fixed link crossing Kattegat, COWI is carrying out a preliminary alignment study for a connection between North-West Zealand and Jutland via Samsø island.
The study will draw on experience from previous projects such as the Storstrøm Bridge, Copenhagen Eastern Ring Road, the Great Belt Link, Øresund Link and the Fehmarn Belt Fixed Link. Related international experience includes the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Express Link, Puente Nigale and the Messina Bridge.
