Lot Syd - Ottobusses Vej :SELI/Kawasaki x 2 TBM-EPB #S1 "Minerva" 5,78 n od x 7 900 m, #S2 "Eva" 5,78 n OD x 7 900 m (_/14 ~ _/1x).
A couple more of some refurbished second-hand CHL200G locomotives - these had previously worked in the USA - will also arrive soon to complement the existing refurbished second-hand CHL200G units that had previously worked in Thessoloniki, Greece and which are now working out of Nørrebroparken.

Truly an international mix.

There is some information on these tunnel locomotives at this site:

And hopefully some photographs will be available in due course...

Is there some kind of 'smart card' you can use on the Metro, S-Tog, busses in CPH?

I'm going to be visiting later in the year and I couldn't really see anything online. I found the Copenhagen Card but it's not really what I'm looking for.

I wouldn't mind picking one up when I arrive so I can just use it to get around. They make nice souvenirs too!

^ Yes Rejsekortet (Travel card) is the new smart card type system (with a top up and pay as you go option). It's been a long time coming and has had a very - to say the least - problematic history, but I think it's up and running fairly smoothly in and around Copenhagen now (though I don't have personal experience with it yet).

Nora has reached the next station at Nuuks Plads.

Tria is on its way to the first station at Nørrebros Runddel and will reach it later in the month.

Tria has breaked through the station box at Nørrebros Runddel on the metro circle line.


http://m.dk/#!/om+metroen/nyheder/pr...+til+runddelen


Hochtief and Züblin is going to build the 2 kilometre that will branch out from the city circle line and up to Nordhavnen, the project includes a metro platform at Nordhavn Station.

The contract to build the last 300 meters of the line above ground and Orientkaj station will be awarded in the fall.

Kapo311 went to the open house today where Minerva and Eva was on Display before they start digging from the control center at Otto Busses vej to the central station (København H).

More good news, the links are only in Danish but perhaps google translate can help.


First, Its seems that there is now a political will in the government to co-finance the division chamber that is needed to to build the Sydhavnsmetro.

Copenhagen municipality will pay 200 million DKK and the government also 200 DKK.

Its however not decided to build the Sydhavnsmetro just yet but it will be more difficult to make the division chamber after the city circle line has started operation.


The division chamber for the Nordhavnsmetro was also contracted before that line was decided to go under construction.


http://ing.dk/artikel/i-sidste-sekun...nsmetro-167553



The work on platform screen doors on the outdoor stations is started.

First they have to rebuild the platforms so they can carry the extra weight from the doors.

They have started the work on the M2 line to the airport.

First up is Kastrup and Femøren and it takes 20 days, the next are Amager Strand and Øresund here in April.


When they start on M1 between DR Byen and Vestamager and M1 and M2 between Vanløse and Lindevang is not announced.

If its only the missing 200 DKK that is stopping this from happening, i think us forumers could pool together and help the government out

I went to see the tunnel boring machine in Nordhavn as well. It was interesting to learn that with a speed of 1.25 meters per hour, the TBM is 7x slower than a fast snail.

Metro extension

Just now this came out on the Danish news services: "Regeringen og Københavns Kommune er ifølge DR blevet enige om at udvide metronettet i København for 8,6 mia. kroner." (Transl.: "The government and the Copenhagen Municipality have, according to national television, agreed to extend the metro network in Copenhagen at a cost of DKK 8.6 billion".)

It's the extension of the metro circle line to the Southern Port neighbourhood, including five new stations that has finally been agreed.

Yes that is correct.


The Sydhavnsmetro will cost 8,6 billion, including 30% budget reserve and the stations are v/Fisketorvet,
v/Frederiksholmsløbet, v/Slusen, v/Mozarts Plads og v/Ny Ellebjerg.

Frederiksholmsløbet will be build under water (hence the name) and will serve Enghave Brygge and the island Teglholmen.


The division chamber is going to get build in 2015 to 2017 and the metro in 2017 to 2023.


M3 and M4 for opens in 2018/19 and the first part of the nordhavnsmetro (northern terminus for M4) opens in 2019.

It must be nice to live in a city that is so progressive and going forward. I live in a city part of the time (Toronto) that is going backwards sadly even though it was once an urban trend leader We need Jan Gehl now!

Yes, it's billed as "Line M4", though I must caution you that the Copenhagen metro company uses the line designation very liberally. Whenever a metro line is split between two end destinations they pretend that it's two different lines - even if perhaps there's just a few stations' difference. M3 designates the circular line that's currently under construction. M4 designates the two deviations into the norther and southern port quarters. However, on most of the route, M3 and M4 uses the same tracks.

Nope. It is specifically stated in the political agreement that the 2 stations Frederiksholmløbet and Slusen will be built as ordinary subway stations and not under water. http://www.trm.dk/~/media/Files/Publ...havnsmetro.pdf - 4th paragraph.

People from Europe and elsewhere should be grateful that they have good mass transit, even if it has problems. Over 90% of North America cities aren't so lucky IMO.
