From both sides of Øresund, the Øresund Bridge is a striking spectacle. The 204m high pylons with their harp-shaped stay cables are visible from Falsterbo in the south to Glumslöv in the north on the Swedish side and from Stevns in the south to Rungsted in the north on the Danish side. The fixed link across Øresund comprises a 4 km immersed tunnel, the artificial island, Peberholm, which is 4 km long, and an 8 km cable-stayed bridge with a main span of 490 m. The high bridge’s two pylons are 204 m high. The navigational clearance is 57 m. The bridge is on two levels – the railway runs along the lower deck while the motorway along the upper deck. 2005 and 2006 have seen a rapid increase in the volume of traffic on the bridge. This phenomenon may be due to Danes buying homes in Sweden and commuting to their work in Denmark, because the price of housing in Malmö is lower than in Copenhagen.
