Denmark and Germany has been permitted by European Union to initiate Undersea Tunnel project between the two countries. The tunnel will cover a distance of 19 Kms.
The underwater tunnel will connect both Denmark and Germany with each other through Railway track and a road which will be 19 Kms long. By this underwater tunnel, a distance between the two countries will be decreased tremendously.
The project has been named as Fehmarn Belt Fixed Link. The project will cost around €8.70 Billions. For the project European Union will issue an amount of €50.890 Million. The EU Commission said that the project meets the guidelines of EU Aid Countries. EU Commission further said that by this project a communication system will be enhanced between European Countries and Scandinavia. The tunnel will connect Denmark’s Lolland Island and Germany’s Fehmarn Island.
The development work for the tunnel will be initiated by January 2016 and hopefully, the project will be completed by 2024. The project will provide a fastest route between Copenhagen, Denmark and Hamburg, Germany. Scientists believe that once the tunnel will be constructed, a distance which was completed in 5 hours, will be covered within 2 hours. There is another similar kind of project which connects Copenhagen, Denmark with Malmo, Sweden through a railroad.
Fehmarn tunnel project is funded by EU Commission, as they believe that the project will connect the region with each other. The aim of the project is to enhance the communicational infrastructure with the modern technology.
On last Thursday, EU released a statement that the new tunnel will be integrated with Denmark’s Public Transport, by which there will not come any such intention of competition and any kind of decrease in quality of development. EU further said that the project will not make any bad impact on any kind of trade between other countries.
