The mooted tunnel would bring a fast connection between the two cities, which are currently directly linked by ferry.

Dubbed the HH connection, the new road link would be the second to connect the neighbouring Scandinavian countries after the Öresund bridge linking Copenhagen and Malmö, which opened in 2000.

Denmark’s Ministry of Transport, Building and Housing will work with Swedish authorities on a strategic analysis of the viability of the project, the Danish ministry announced on its website Monday.

The analysis is expected to take three years to complete, according to the ministry press release.
