A coherent and clearly perceptible form, strongly expressed through the design of the main span as an iconic element. This is the design concept for the new Storstrøm Bridge, designed by Dissing+Weitling in cooperation with COWI and Hasløv & Kjærsgaard.
The preferred solution is a new, combined railway and road bridge, with a gently curved alignment that compliments the surrounding landscape, but also forms a dynamic shape that connects the two shores of Masned Island and Falster.
On both sides of Storstrømmen, the understated design of the bridge’s abutments is a response to the topographically fragile context. The design of the bridge gives the impression of a robust and simple structure, which also appears elegant for those crossing or viewing the bridge.
The pylon’s geometrical form gives the bridge a dynamic and striking expression, while interacting with the bridge’s curved alignment, resulting in a refined and sculpturally coherent composition. The pylon will become an iconic element and it’s simplicity compliments the pier family, which includes the Øresund Fixed Link, the Great Belt Link and Farø Bridge.
