Construction time again

The Federal German Administrative Court yesterday rejected a complaint filed by two environmental organizations. The court ruled that Femern A/S has compensated sufficiently for excavating tunnel channels close to some protected rock reefs in the Fehmarn Belt. Thus, the final legal term for the Fehmarn Tunnel has been set, and Femern A/S can concentrate on building the world’s longest submersible tunnel.

Politically, there is also a prospect of calmness – or at least hands on the wheel. After 42 days of negotiations, Denmark has got a new government. It will be the relatively nondescript Thomas Danielsen from the Left, who will become transport minister and thus responsible for the Fehmarn project.

Happy reading and thank you for inviting FemernReport to your inbox.
