Denmark: MT Højgaard will build a new railway bridge over Guldborgsund

Banedanmark has awarded a 509 million DKK (68 million EUR | 70 million USD) contract to MT Højgaard Danmark for the construction of a new railway bridge over Guldborgsund in Sjælland, Denmark.

The new 300 meter lift bridge will be located south of the existing Kong Frederik IX Bridge.

Banedanmark is building the structure to strengthen its infrastructure and support the Fehmarnbelt Link project. As part of this upgrade, the entire Ringsted-Femern line will be electrified.

The Ringsted Fehmarn track is one of the largest construction projects in Danish history

Section Head at MT Højgaard Danmark, Niels Holm Mikkelsen said:

“The new Kong Frederik IX bridge is an important project. The relationship with developer Banedanmark and the completion of a strategic infrastructure project like this means a lot to us. We will apply our professional skills and resources in marine construction, concrete and foundation works, steel bridges and earthworks. This assignment is an important step that allows us to showcase our skills in the wider Danish civil works market.

Throughout the construction process, MT Højgaard will carry out earthworks and retaining works, expand the railway dam, deepen Guldborgsund and complete track work.

MT Højgaard Danmark will now cooperate with advisers on the design of the bridge before the start of the construction phase in April 2023. Construction is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2026.
