Ilha artificil em Copenhaga em discussão
March 11, 2021 -
O Parlamento da Dinamarca vai debater a construção de Lynetteholm – uma ilha artificial no porto norte de Copenhaga. O enorme projeto
de engenharia exigiria um investimeno de mais de $3.000 milhões.
If approved, the 2.8 square km (1.1 square mile) land mass could be built-up by 2050, Bloomberg said.
Lynetteholm is meant to ease the Danish capital’s chronic housing crunch and act as a springboard for an ambitious rethink of the city’s infrastructure. Revenue from the housing development would fund a new tunnel under the harbour, through which a metro line would be routed, as well as a section of ring road providing swifter journey times from the airport to Copenhagen’s wealthy suburbs.
But critics warn that Lynetteholm could bring grave environmental damage. Those critics include officials in nearby Sweden, who say that the project risks altering ocean currents in the narrow Øresund sound, according to Bloomberg.
