The EIB has signed a loan agreement with A/S Femern Landanlaeg, the company managing the Danish contribution to building of the “Fehmarn Belt” railway connection between southern Denmark and Hamburg in Germany. The EUR 200 million loan is guaranteed by the Danish state. The project concerns some 80 km of railway between Ringsted and Nykøbing Falster, where the existing tracks will be modernised and a second track will be built. The financing also covers bridge works on the 40 km stretch between Nykøbing Falster and Rødby, which serve to prepare the Danish rail network for the Fehmarn Belt tunnel opening.
