Traveling between countries separated by water used to require flight or boat, then man started to build massive bridges. The problem with bridges is that they don’t easily allow for ships to pass. Now cars can travel from Copenhagen, Denmark to Malmo Sweden without interfering with ship traffic. They do this by taking a bridge which leads to a tunnel that takes drivers on a journey below the water.
Not only does the bridge/tunnel combination make it easier for drivers to cross between countries it allows the local flora and fauna to flourish. Where the bridge becomes a tunnel there is a manmade island that has allowed local plants and animals a place to live, undisturbed.
Since being constructed 3.7 million people have been given the option to live in one country while commuting to another to work. Not only can you drive through the tunnel but a second level below the road plays host to a train system that makes commuting easy, even without a car. Whether by train or car, traveling over the Øresund Bridge and through the tunnel will offer a unique experience or a simple commute.
A perfect place for biologist to study. Who knew that a hub for transportation could also be the home to life.
