The consortium planning a road and rail link between Denmark and Sweden has submitted a new proposal to the countries' governments.Sweden's parliament has refused to give the project the go-ahead, asking for further environmental safeguards from Oresundkonsortiet.Its main concern was the blocking effect of the link on water passing through the strait to the Baltic Sea.The government convened a study of the proposals, but concluded it would accept the link only if it had no blocking effect.
