€ 8.000 for the whole study? That's not very expensive... 4 years? That's like € 10 a day.

A few quick snaps, from the 4 days old 14 km "Høgild - Brande" part of the "Midtjyske Motorvej" just south of Herning. The road was very wet today:

Why are they using the same pavement in the middle as in the sides - there are usually just grass in there on danish motorways? What is that kind of pavement called, it looks like some kinda discount asphalt?

I'm sure it ain't "discount asphalt", but as I wrote, it was very wet, so that's why it looks pretty funny. As you can see on the first photo HERE it's looks like the same type as they use on most other new streches.

------------
EDIT: In the newspaper about the new motorway, there something about the asphalt. I'm no expert on that area, but you can read it yourself, it's on page 29: The newspaper
-------------

I'm not sure why there's no grass in the middle, or wheater that's good or bad, but I think it's the same on the Århus - Herning motorway, atleast the part closest to Herning, as you can see on this photo from last year (and again, wet road ):


And here another one, still the same "middle section":

I was referring to the brown asphalt (or whatever it is) on the emergency shoulders and in the middle section, which I have only seen used in Denmark. Is that some kinda cheap asphalt, or what is it?

Oh sorry, misunderstood your question then. To be honest I have no idea what it is, or how good the quality is. But to me it doesn't looks that much different from what's on these photos of E45 (German border - Kolding), which also is much older (and has grass in the middle part):

As far as I know it's rough textured to shorten breaking distances in case of accidents... and ofcause to give of a different side when entering it compraed to the normal surfice ( same reason it's coloured brown )

Grass is slippery and imo not suited for high way speeds - having rough asphalt can save lifes - or limit accidents... hence worth every penny

E39 Hirtshals - Hjørring - Aalborg

[IMG]http://i23.************/35362bd.png[/IMG]

Some pics from the E39, a quiet motorway from Hirtshals to Aalborg. I start from national road 35 at Hjørring, drive north to the Hirtshals roundabout, and turn to the south heading for Aalborg until interchange Vendsyssel with the E45 Frederikshavn - Århus.

40 pics, Picasa webalbum

Yes that is a quite quiet motorway. A little funny storey about this photo: Without being totally sure it's the exact spot, it could be the place where Jean Michel Jarre held his "Aero" concert in 2002, between the wind turbines, and in extremly heavy rain.

EDIT: And while we're in the area, the bridge in this photo totally collapsed last year (or 2 years ago) while under construction, and one worker was killed. It's just north of the "Limfjordstunnelen" on E45.

Route 21: København - Roskilde - Holbæk

[IMG]http://i22.************/2emq39h.png[/IMG]

Route 21 is one of the most important acces roads to Copenhagen. The road has 2x3 lanes until Fløng, and 2x2 lanes to Holbæk. The road also leads by world famous Roskilde. There are three interchanges; "Brøndby", "Vallensbæk" and "Taastrup".

62 photo's of route 21

/\ Damn, how long did you drive to get all these photos?

About the Danish motorway network: We're not allowed to show maps from "Vejdirektoratet", so I've made my own map of the network. I might expand it in the near future, with city names and road numbers.

Orange = Todays motorways.
Blue = Approved or under construction motorways.

asphalt median also makes it very easy to divert traffic to the opposite lanes wherever needed. And i dont think its any worse, just for different use, allthough it probably is cheaper, than the lanes that are in constant use.
But colour is deffinetly not important in this sense, i think.

Denmark isn't as flat as people think. Altitudes aren't high, but it's rolling hills all the time. Netherlands is really flat, Denmark isn't.
