After months of debate and scepticism, a new fence in the middle of Europe has started to become reality. The fence largely follows the Danish-German border and is slated for completion in record time.

The construction of a new border fence between Germany and continental Denmark has started, Danish Radio reported.

The fence, which aims to keep German wild boars off Denmark's territory, has been railroaded through by the Scandinavian country's powerful pork lobby. It will be 1.5 metres high and go 50 centimetres into the ground, costing circa DKK 80 million ($12 million). The Danish pork industry will fork out DKK 30 million ($4.5 million) of the cost.

The border wall aims to prevent African swine fever from entering Denmark. Should the deadly disease ever find a way into the Scandinavian country, its pork exports would stop immediately. Danish pig exports account for DKK 11 billion annually ($1.7 billion)

The fence is the Ser Hegn construction company's largest current project.
