During construction the sea bed gave way and one of the tunnels was flooded.It was designed by the Danish engineering firms COWI and Ramboll.The link replaced the ferry service that had been the primary means of crossing the Great Belt.The water continued to rise and reached the end at Sprogø, where it continued into the (still dry) other tunnel.The water damaged two of the four tunnel boring machines, but no workers were injured.

Only by placing a clay blanket on the sea bed was it possible to dry out the tunnels.The two damaged machines were repaired and the majority of the tunnelling was undertaken from the Sprogø side.The West Bridge was built between 19; its road/rail deck comprises 63 sections, supported by 62 pillars.The twin bored tunnel tubes of the East Tunnel (Østtunnelen) are each 8,024 m (5 miles) long.The two countries negotiated a financial compensation of 90 million Danish kroner, and Finland withdrew the lawsuit.
