The Great Belt bridge is actually two bridges – an Eastern and a Western section, split by the small island of Sprogø. The East Bridge, a 1,624 meter long suspension bridge crosses the deepest part of Storebælt between the island of Zealand and Sprogø. It has the third longest main span in the world. At 254 meter above sea level, the East Bridge’s two pylons are the highest points in Denmark. The West Bridge is a 6,611 meter long combined rail and road bridge between Sprogø and Funen.
