WilkinsonEyre's scheme for Fehmarnbelt Tunnel approved

WilkinsonEyre is part of the team whose proposal has been approved to build an 11 mile under sea tunnel from the Danish island of Lolland to the German island of Fehmarn. The tunnel will cut road and rail journey times significantly between western Europe and Scandinavia.

The link combines two four lane motorways with a high-speed rail line combined motorway and rail tunnel. Construction is due to start in 2014 and complete in 2020.
