What is Lynetteholm?
Lynetteholm is a large artificial island that was approved by Denmark’s Parliament. It is expected to house 35,000 people and protect the port of Copenhagen from the rising sea levels. It will also have a dam system around its perimeter, so the harbour is protected from storms and rising levels of sea. This artificial island will be connected to the mainland via a ring of road, tunnels and a metro line.
The Island is expected to be fully completed by 2070. The majority of the island’s foundation is to be completed by 2035. However, there may be a possible delay over the years due to the opposition from the environmentalists who are concerned about the island’s construction and its impact on the environment.
