The Old Lillebælt bridge
The Old Lillebælt Bridge
The suggestion for a bridge across Lillebælt was first proposed to the Danish Parliament in 1855-56. However, the proposition was rejected.
Danish Prime Minister Th. Stauning took up the case again in the late 1920s as relief work for unemployed workmen from all over Denmark and on the 14th of May 1935 the bridge, 825 m. long, was opened.
It had cost 32 Mill. Danish Kroner to build and during its first year in use it was crossed by 533.000 cars. Five times as many as the ferries had carried over the belt the year before.
The bridge can be passed by cars, as well as pedestrians and bikes. Also the trains pass over this bridge
