Scroll a little, Picture is near the top of page .

Yes, it's Malmö-Copenhagen bridge+tunnel.

There's also railways below the motorways.

 

Lots of traffic there, many people live in one country and work in the other, cool commute!

Do hurricanes get that far north? Doesn't look like the smartest design for hurricane country...

Copenhagen?

 

I think the tobacco is named after the city. :D

 

And btw, the bridge's name is The Öresund Bridge. Website

You betcha they do, Botch. Just last summer the area was hit by Isabel.

Yep Ted, the HRBT and the Chesapeake Bay BT do the same thing, 'ceptin' fer the HRBT has one tunnel and the Chesapeake has two. Plus the Chesapeake is 'way longer (13 miles, I think, and a toll bridge.

 

No second level, tho, with train tracks or anything else.

 

Isabel was my first hurricane here, and it whacked the OBX a lot harder than us. But neither BT had any issues.

 

The downtown tunnel in Norfolk was another matter. ;) (Under water for two days).
