The Little Belt Bridge
The Little Belt Bridge or Lillebæltsbroen spans the Little Belt sound between the West side of the island Funen and the coast of East Jutland and links the highway net East-West through Denmark.
The Little Belt Bridge was opened in 1970 and is exclusively a road bridge.
The Little Belt Bridge is 1700 meters wide, and the pylons are 120 meters tall. It has a span between the pylons 600 meters wide.
The highest point of the bridge between the pylons is 42 meters above sea level. The bridge was built using 17000 tons of steel, and each pylon is founded on 210 30 meter long concrete pillars.
Located West of the Litle Belt Bridge is the old Little Belt Bridge. It was opened in 1935 and is a combined road and railway bridge, 1178 meters long. It has since its construction sunk about half a meter but still offers a 33 meter high clearance for ships.
