Decisive day for the Fehmarnbelt project

”It is of huge importance for the Fehmarnbelt project that the political parties behind the Fehmarnbelt project have today approved the plan to enable Femern A/S to enter into conditional contracts with the winning consortia,” says Leo Larsen, CEO, Sund & Bælt. ”That Banedanmark can also start work on the Ringsted-Nykøbing Falster section will benefit the southern part of Zealand and Lolland-Falster and create new jobs from this year.”

The political parties behind the Fehmarnbelt link have today approved a timetable for the Fehmarnbelt project which means that Femern A/S can appoint the preferred contractors for the major tunnel contracts with a view to entering conditional contracts by mid-May 2016.

For A/S Femern Landanlæg, the decision means that the construction works on the Ringsted-Nykøbing Falster section can get underway so that the section is upgraded to dual track and a new signalling system in 2021 and electrified in 2024. The section between Nykøbing Falster and Rødbyhavn will be upgraded so that the facilities are complete prior to the opening of the coast-to-coast link. A speed of 200 km/h will be possible when the section is completed.

As the clients, Sund & Bælt’s subsidiary, A/S Femern Landanlæg, along with Banedanmark, are responsible for the railway facilities on the Danish side.

The Fehmarnbelt project is Denmark’s largest infrastructure project with a total budget of DKK 62 billion. Of this, DKK 9.5 billion has been assigned for the expansion of the Danish landworks.
