This INSANE Looking Bridge Turns Into a Tunnel and Connects Denmark and Sweden
The Øresund is an engineering marvel... The bridge-tunnel is the longest combined road and rail bridge in Europe and connects the two metropolitan areas of the Oresund Region: the Danish capital of Copenhagen and the Swedish city of Malmö.
A cable-stayed bridge runs nearly 8 km (5 miles) to an artificial island where it transitions into a tunnel that runs another 4 km (2.5 miles). The award-winning double-track railway and motorway opened on July 1, 2000.
The bridge and tunnel run across the Øresund strait and is jointly operated by the neighbouring states from both countries. To use the Øresund you must pay a toll.
