well, the fast tracks would not be that expensive, and they will open up capacity, which would be in good use, if they double the capacity in central Copenhagen, by the new tunnel. With both the old a new tunnel, 60 trains, per direction, per hour, would be able to drive trough Copenhagen Central, and that's probably more than the network can deliver now. So it may cost a lot, but it should be considered.

According to the DTU study, the tunnel would cost 7,7 billion, whereas fast tracks would round up to 8,6. So if I had to choose, then it would definately be the tunnel that would be better value for money.

But i suppose that they can make the fast tracks a bit shorter and reduce the cost. It should not be a big problem to extend them in the future if necessary.

Are there any plans for extending the F-line beyond 'Ny Ellebjerg St.' to Amager?

Though one of the illustrations in the "Loop City" project does indicate an extension of the Ring 3 light rail line to Ørestad and maybe the airport.

That would really good and complete the ring, but is probably many years in the future.
Protecting the route though would be cheap, but needs a political decision.

Thank you for posting this slide-show. Looks very exciting. What is the status of the Ring 3 project?

The minister of transport, the capital region and 11 municipalities has agreed to build the light rail. Next step is an EIA-assessment.

From that article: http://trm.dk/da/nyheder/2011/aftale...bane+i+ring+3/

Since the Metro doesn't extend that far west, and I'm not aware of any plans to make that happen, I must be reading that wrong.
But would it make sence to extend the Metro to Northern Glostrup ('The Energy Park') if they are planning to re-develop the industrial area?

I wondered about that sentence as well. I believe the metro is mentioned to underline the light rail will be a part of the network today containing S-train, buses and metro.

Great news:

Copenhagen and Malmö announced that they were seeking European Union funding to study a potential metro line under the Øresund to the neighbourhood of Malmö Central Station, providing faster trips and additional capacity beyond that of the existing Øresund Bridge. The study will consider both a simple shuttle between the two stations and a continuous line integrated with the local transport networks on each side, and they anticipate a travel time of 15 minutes between the two city centres.

That is impressive, never thought it would reach this so fast. We'll probably not see it so fast as the articles says it can be, but still. And it would on of the damn best thing to do in that area!

I worked in the capacity departement at Banedenmark and my colleagues there had worked with this project for years, (since airport terminal 3 opened) Though the plan until I stopped there were a combined Cargo and regional line. The reason behind the reason behind this project is basically because the capacity at the DSB airport station is far too small compared to the demand and has always been.

A proposed addition to the Cityring metro now under construction is the branch to Nordhavn (Northern Harbour) and Orienkaj. This is now being promoted in order to kick start the development of the area to a dense harbourside township. Expected opening 2019.

The map also shows the branch line and the line of the proposed light rail outer ring line (yellow) and the new high speed relief main line (dotted green) to Køge and Ringsted. Opening in 2018. Exsisting metro (light blue), S train (red) and main line services including the line to Sweden (green)

Nordhavn seems to be a perfect area for redevelopment. The Metro will be a great way of encouraging that.

Just to get it straight for our international forumers: The City ring metro is not only proposed, it is actually under construction.
Also the light rail-ring in Ring 3 is not just a proposal either, it have moved a big step forward as a political agreement have been made, and is now under planning (however in an early stage).

Will the ring line be opened fully at one time or step by step? And if so, which stretch will be open in the first place?

It will be opened all together, afaik.

The nature of the circle lines makes them difficult to divide into stages.

Well actually in some of the early proposals there where plans to split it up into two stages - first stage between Central station and Nørrebro (via Kongens Nytorv and Østerbro), and second stage the rest of the ring from Nørrebro and back to Central station.

Later on in the political proces this idea was scrapped in favour of building it all and open it all at the same time. I think the reasons was that it would be cheaper, and there wasn't many advantages of splitting it up in two stages, as the building time for the first stage would be almost as long as if they built the all at once. The building time for the stations is what take longest time, and they're building all 18 stations more or less simultaneous, and will be finish doing all the drilling before the stations are done.
