Notice the special Danish concrete crash barrier in the right side - I have not seen them used in other countries.

Also notice the stippled side marking line, which is made of reflective thermo plastic and makes an awfull sound when you drive on it. We call them "Wake up lines" and they are pretty damn effective.

Route 9 Odense - Svendborg - Spodsbjerg
[IMG]http://i24.************/2rhr2fr.png[/IMG]

This motorway is brand new, and goes from Odense to Svendborg. Other than on maps, the bypass of Svendborg is 2x2 lanes and has no grade intersections. Most people drove 120km/h here. After Svendborg, we pass over 2 larger bridges, to the island of Langeland.

Route 9 -> 92 photos

Did you drive around here in Denmark for no other reason than to look at the motorways?

Thank you for the photos and videos Chris, it's always interesting to see what "outsiders" have to say about our roads and bridges.

BTW, the next new motorway stretch to open, is the Herning S - Brande. 14 Km's will be opened on monday (as a part of the Herning-Vejle motorway, Route 18). If interested, there's a newspaper about it, which be read online. Go here, and click the first link in the "seneste nyt" box. It's only in Danish though, but there's a lot of aerial photos in it.

Why not take pics, while you are travelling?

Other people take hundreds of pics of trains, metros, buildings, trees etc. I take pics of motorways

But last time in Denmark was in 1991, so it was nice to be back again.

Route 18 is not going to be motorway all the way though.

Here is a map of all the current motorway projects in Denmark. http://www.vejdirektoratet.dk/dokume...nt&objno=82253

/\ First, you should probably remove those maps, or atlest don't link directly from vejdirektoratet.dk. I almost got in trouble for doing exactly that some time ago.

And no, not all of route 18 will be motorway, but the part from Herning to Vejle North (E45) will. It will be ready in 2012, and has gotten the name "Midtjyske Motorvej".

yes, i have noticed those marking lines earlier, really a lot of those are in Denmark. and that's great because they are effective indeed! here in Croatia we have them at few places, the sound they make is really horrible!

I reckon you are right. Amazing that Vejdirektoratet doesnt even want people to show others their projects - those ******* *******s!

I think the part around Brande is only a motortrafikvej, aint it? Anyway, I think you are a bit too spoiled with motorways around Herning.

Yes it's the only part that haven't been finally approved for "upgrading" yet by the government, but that's only because a "VVM undersøgelse" haven't been made it. As you can see HERE they have just stated making it, and I'm 100% sure it's just a formality to approve it.

Wheater or not "we're" too spoiled with motorways here, I can't say. Of course there's not as much trafic here as the larger Danish cities, and I'm sure that regional development and "A country in balance" also had something to say. Herning is though, the town/city after Århus in Region Midtjylland, where most people commute to work every day (Was surprised to see that myself the other day in a trafic report from Region Midt.), so it's not like the new motorway aren't used at all.

To the foreigners in here: Maybe you can get away with posting maps of planned motorways in Denmark from the homesite of the Danish road administration. It would be nice to discuss the new projects from pictures in here.

It's a pretty calm motorway, yes, but i think on holidays, it can be very busy, because when the nearby city of Odense goes on holiday for the weekends or vacations.

Meanwhile, i uploaded a video of the E45 in Aalborg, in the far north of Denmark.

E45 Aalborg

You might wanna know that they are talking about building a new motorway west around Ålborg, with a bridge over Limfjorden (the wide river you drove under). Apparently they think the current motorway through Ålborg is too overloaded.

So far it's only a tip of the iceberg.

I have over 13.000 roadpics in 7 countries. And there is a lot more planned;

Poland, Slovakia, Czechia, Spain and Portugal next year if everything goes well.

Although it's nothing compared to a guy i know in Switzerland, he has over 100.000 pics of roads, maybe you now him; Marcel Monterie. He has an extensive site about road numbering system of all the countries in the world.

Marcel Monterie Check on Index.

Oh, I see. I was thinking of studying transport (when I'm done with the present study); it would cost me 8,000 €.
