Storstrøm Bridge will connect the Danish regions of Zealand and Falster via Masnedø. The project forms part of the railway line upgrading between Copenhagen and Rødby, and on to the Fehmarnbelt Tunnel, which will link Denmark and Germany.
When completed in 2022, the new bridge will carry two tracks of high-speed trains, up to 200 km/h, a two-lane regional road and a combined cycle and footpath. With a length of nearly 4 km and a with a central cable-stayed section allowing vessel navigation, it will become Denmark’s third largest bridge, after the Øresund Bridge and the Great Belt Bridge.
Arenas & Asociados, teaming with German specialists schlaich bergermann partner and Moormann Geotechnik Consult, is responsible for the independent check of the detailed design. The bridge is conceived in concrete, due to durability and maintenance conditions. It has a total length of 3832 m between abutments, and it is composed by three sections: a central main cable-stayed bridge, and two approach viaducts. The cable-stayed bridge has two spans of 160 m each, providing a clear navigation channel. Its pylon rises up to a height of 100 m above sea level.
