Øresund link hatches pleasant surprise

Three years after the opening of the link spanning the Øresund between Denmark and Sweden, the massive engineering project appears to have confounded the worst fears of opponents by actually improving the environment, Jyllands-Posten newspaper reports. In particular, the 4km-long artificial island of Peberholm, connecting the tunnel and bridge links, now supports a dozen breeding species of birds and almost 300 plant species, some rare or very rare. Hans Ohrt, environmental coordinator for the Øresund consortium, attributes these "positive results" to measures introduced after "vehement protests" against the unprecedented project.
