The Little Belt Bridge is a suspension bridge between Jutland and Funen in Denmark and is part of the European road E20.
It is also called the new Little Belt Bridge.
The need for another bridge came in the 1960s when the old Little Belt Bridge was to be relieved.

Construction began in 1965 and in 1970 the bridge was opened by King Frederik IX.
The Little Belt Bridge was Denmark's first large suspension bridge and was Denmark's largest suspension bridge until the Great Belt Bridge opened in 1998.

The bridge is 1700 meters long, and has a main span of 600 meters
