Great Belt Bridge or Great Belt Fixed Link?[edit]

I suggest we either move this page back to Great Belt Bridge, or alternatively make main page under that title and then have a sub page on the fixed link. I have two reasons for this suggestion: 1, It is the name that this construction is commonly referred too, both in Denmark and Internationally. 2, The Danish page that links to this is called Storebæltsbroen (Great Belt Bridge), and not Den Faste Storebæltsforbindelse. --Mecil 15:10, 1 June 2006 (UTC)

Done. You are right. --Arigato1 20:34, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

Undone. This is a comment from 9 months ago and there is no support for this, see further down where there is more discussion. The article talks about the entire fixed link, the bridge and the tunnels. Please seek consensus before moves such as this. ++Lar: t/c 01:46, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Page move appropriate?[edit]

This article begins by describing the suspension bridge, but soon turns to considering both the Eastern and the Western bridge and the tunnel. Perhaps a title like "Great Belt link" or "Great Belt fixed link" would be better for an article on two bridges and a tunnel; should the page be moved?

I created Great Belt Link which redirects to this article. Eventually, there might be enough for a separate article. For now it makes sense for the article to be located here at Great Belt Bridge, because it is the most note-worthy part of the construction. -- Samuel Wantman 00:38, 15 August 2005 (UTC)

Highest point in Denmark[edit]

The top of the pillars of the Great Belt is not the highest point in Denmark (except Faroer and Greenland). It is the top of the mast of Rø Transmitter.

toll charges[edit]

Anyone know what the charges for using the bridge actually are, for the benefit of anyine thinking of using it? Sandpiper 17:12, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Today it's 200 DKK for a car under 6 m. For other vehicles see [1] and click the UK flag. --Oami 22:37, 1 September 2006 (UTC)
Oh yes, and it's DKK 5,793.00 for a passenger train and DKK 5,373.00 for a freight train in case you have a train that's all yours :) Sorry about the reply time, btw — Peter L <talk|contribs> 23:07, 1 September 2006 (UTC)

Finland Suing Denmark[edit]

Does anyone have more information regarding this? I don't see finlands problem, as they could have gone through Öresund which had a tunnel on the danish side.81.235.136.245 (talk) 12:14, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

I searched a little in the Swedish or Danish language about this and only the suit from 1991 has been found [2], nothing more. The Finns seemed to have dropped the issue. The problem with Öresund is that it is much more shallow. -- BIL (talk) 22:37, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

    Triggered by \brailway-technology\.com\b on the local blacklist

Yes check.svg Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 19:12, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
