New analysis: So many cars will the new tunnel draw from the great belt

Between 550.000 and 600.000 drivers will opt out of a trip over the Bridge for the benefit of the future Fehmarn tunnel, when they need to travel between Denmark and Germany.

Such is the conclusion of a new traffic analysis by the German consultancy firm Intraplan have done, and as this week has been forwarded to the Parliament from the ministry of Transport.

The typing of the Engineer.

this corresponds to between 1507 and 1644 drivers every day, can magazine tell.

When people must from Zealand to Germany, or conversely, takes the majority of the day trip across the great belt and the German border in southern Jutland.

But with the coming of the Femernforbindelse will be between 90 and 95 percent of the drivers according to the new analysis instead, take the new road between the island of Lolland and the German peninsula Fehmarn. The remaining 5-10% are drivers, which anyway only to and from north schleswig, and is therefore not expected to make use of Fehmarn-the detour.

Sund & Bælt tried in 2017 to get some of the challenges of life by reducing the price to cross the great belt Bridge by 25 percent. A maneuver that stood to cost the Fehmarn project 70 million. dollars a year.

If the analysis from the German Intraplan keeps, but not quite so bad anyway it almost 55 billion. crowns expensive construction project.

It was also the consultants from the Intraplan, who in his time made the original forecast of traffic through the Fehmarn tunnel. The original report has however since been criticised for being too uncertain, because, according to the Engineer has 'underestimated the dynamic effects and nygenereret traffic'.

Why was the German consultants are asked to substantiate their analysis with better data. In 2018 supervised the thus, the traffic across the great belt in six weeks, and calculated from the data an estimate for the whole year.

It is on the basis that the company is now expecting a larger hijacking of the drivers from the great belt.
