Book of Ideas
More than 600 people participated in 19 different events during the Fehmarnbelt Days 2012. Their common objective: to help shape the new Fehmarnbelt Region within the context of the future tunnel between Denmark and Germany. The ideas that were presented during these three days are now gathered here.
Bottlenecks in the infrastructure between Scandinavia and Central Europe
A key issue to debate is the bottlenecks in the infrastructure system between Scandinavia and Central Europe. Bottlenecks are locations that will affect the traffic flows to and from the Fehmarn Belt link, and that therefore has an effect on regional accessibility and mobility. Such bottlenecks primarily affect road and rail transport. An upgrade of the network infrastructure in the entire stretch from Öresund-Hamburg could be necessary, in order to assure the possibility of easily reaching destinations both within and outside the STRING geography.
