The world’s longest underwater rail tunnel will connect Germany and Denmark by 2029

Denmark and Germany will soon be linked by the Fehmarnbelt Tunnel, an 18-kilometer-long underwater tunnel combining two electrified rail tracks and a road.
This project – which crosses a stretch of the Baltic Sea known as the Fehmarn Belt – will connect Rødbyhavn on the Danish island of Lolland and Puttgarden in northern Germany.
The journey through it will take 7 minutes by train, avoiding a 160-kilometer detour across Denmark. Rail travel times from Hamburg in Germany to Copenhagen in Demark will be cut from around 5 hours to less than 3.
Femern A/S, the state-owned Danish company in charge of the project, and Denmark are also planning to build high-speed electric rail lines to and from the tunnel. And train services will continue past the Danish border to Sweden, Norway, and Finland.
Worth mentioning though: some environmental groups have questioned the impact of the tunnel on wildlife in the Fehmarn Belt, which is an EU-protected area. I am wondering what Femern A/S will implement to reduce the impact of this project on the marine biodiversity and ecosystem.
It is nonetheless a super good project to connect Northern Europe to the rest of the continent!
