Concept Description

The Øresund Bridge crosses the Øresund strait and joins Sweden with Denmark. This marvel of ingenuity has a total length of 4.8 miles and was completed in 2000. The Øresund Bridge is an incredibly complex structure that begins as a cable-stayed bridge in Sweden and ends as a tunnel in Denmark. A small artificial island was built around the tunnel’s entrance to keep water from creeping in. Tehomet has manufactured the lighting poles for the bridge. The poles are made of steel with very high quality requirements.
