New Storstrøm Bridge

Denmark's third largest bridge at around 4 kilometres across, the new bridge will have both regional and international importance. It will contribute to the rail corridor between Copenhagen and Germany.

Denmark’s third largest bridge

The new Storstrøm Bridge will be one of the few bridges in the world to feature a two-track high-speed railway, a dual carriageway, and a combined cycle and pedestrian path, all on one cross section.

“We have asked Ramboll to be part of the construction of the new Storstrøm Bridge. We know Ramboll as a serious and skilled company from their previous work and therefore it was a natural choice to ask Ramboll for the extra capacity”- Emanuelle Lancelotti, area manager infrastructures North Europe at ITINERA S.p.A.

Applying previous bridge building experience

Ramboll has a long history of designing bridges. For this project, we are responsible for the structural and geotechnical design of most of the substructure, superstructure, and cable-stayed bridge. We will also assist with detailed project designs, as well as the approval processes for the cable-stayed bridge and the land facilities.

Check out Emanuelle Lancelotti, area manager infrastructures North Europe at ITINERA S.p.A., talk about Ramboll’s skills and supporting facilities as partners in this project.

Collaborating for connective infrastructure

The main construction contractor for the new bridge is Storstrøm Bridge Joint Venture (SBJV). The Danish Road Traffic Authority is the owner of the bridge, which expects it to be ready for car traffic in 2024 and rail traffic in 2026.
