To mark this special occasion, the Storebælt Bridge’s 254m high pylons will be illuminated in yellow between 22:00 and 04:00.
From now on, road users will be able to see the illuminated pylons on weekend nights leading up to the great race. The spectacle is part of Sund & Bælt’s campaign to keep the general public informed about the race and its impact on traffic during one of the busiest travel weekends of the summer.
"The Storebælt Bridge is the lifeblood for traffic across Denmark, which is why we’re doing our utmost to inform our customers about the closure of the link for five hours when the Tour de France crosses the bridge on 2 July. The illuminated yellow pylons will serve as a highly visible reminder to motorists,” says Lene Gebauer Thomsen, Head of Communications at Sund & Bælt.
From Friday 24 June until the start of the Tour, the pylons will shine yellow every night to welcome the cyclists across the bridge.
On the day of the race itself, Saturday 2 July, the Storebælt Bridge will be closed between 13:00 and 18:00. Read more about how the race will affect traffic on Storebælt’s themesite for The Tour.
