one of the world’s longest cable-stayed bridges

The Øresund Bridge is one of the world’s longest cable-stayed bridges for combined motorway and railway traffic. It spans the international navigation route between Sweden and Denmark, and acts as a critical component for growth in the Øresund Region.

The bridge has a main span of 490m and two side spans of 160m and 141m on each side of the main span, and a height of 57m above the sea. The approach bridges towards Denmark and Sweden are 3,739m and 3,013m respectively.
