The Øresund facility, which comprises a motorway and railway as well as the Øresund Bridge, is one of the most important transport links in Denmark despite its relatively short section.
In 2017, traffic on the Storebælt road link beat a number of records. It was the greatest year with a total of 12.8 million vehicles. Traffic growth was 3 per cent compared to 2016. Car passenger traffic increased by 2,8 per cent, and cargo traffic increased by 4,8 per cent. Rail traffic amounted to 50,235 trains, which is an increase of 5,3 per cent compared to 2016.
A/S Storebælt is a subsidiary of Sund & Bælt Holding A/S
A vehicle’s toll category – the price that is paid for crossing the bridge – is determined on the basis of the vehicle’s length and height.
Every morning, Sund & Bælt’s road service team makes a trip across the Storebælt fixed link to pick up litter and check that all safety precautions are in order as far as road safety is concerned.
As infrastructure owner, Sund & Bælt is focused on road safety. Our road safety policy commits us to making a proactive effort to prevent accidents at our facilities.
Of the three stations on the Øresund line, Sund & Bælt owns Tårnby Station and Copenhagen Airport, which is one of Denmark’s busiest stations.
The Øresund motorway opened on 27th September 1997 marking a significant advance in mobility at an international, national, regional and local level.
A number of operational tasks on both the Storebælt fixed link and Storebælt’s railway are outsourced. Some of the tasks are outsourced in partnership with Banedanmark.
The toll station is an integral part of the Storebælt link with more than 30,000 customers passing through it every day.
