Oresund Bridge

Oresund Bridge
 (JPG) (1,287,253 bytes) ( 3,390 x 1,728 )
In 1991 the governments of Denmark and Sweden agreed to build a bridge to connect the two countries across the Oresund Strait. The 16 km long Oresund link between Malmo, Sweden (right) and Copenhagen, Denmark (left) was completed and opened to traffic in 2000. Denmark and Sweden were linked once more - 7,000 years after the Ice Age when they were landlocked. The Oresund Bridge is the world's longest single bridge carrying both road and railway traffic. The high bridge with its record-breaking cable-stayed span of 490m is designed to harmonize both structurally and aesthetically with the approach bridges. The connection starts on the Denmark side near the airport as an underwater tunnel that emerges on a man-made island. From there, the bridge continues to the Sweden side. The ASTER image was acquired April 10, 2004, is centered near 55.6 degrees north latitude, 12.7 degrees east longitude, and covers an area of 50.8 x 25.9 km.
