Klippekort will not be removed from the app right away. It hasn't been decided when (or if).

The TBM Nora has reached its 3rd station Aksel Møllers Have today.

It then only need to drill past Frederiksberg before it reach Frederiksberg Allé,

It it is then transported back to its starting position at Nørrebroparken where it will drill northeast to Sortedams Sø

Tria is only a few weeks away from Nuuks Plads (the station before Aksel Møllers Have) so its only 1,5 stations behind.

It has the same journey to do as Nora.

Minerva and Eva will soon start the short journey from the control center at Otto Busses Vej to København H.

They will then be transported a around 1 kilometer back to Søndre Boulevard where they will start drilling towards Frederiksberg Allé where they also will be transported away on trucks.

Their last journey will be from Sortedams Sø and then through the downtown area to København H

Copenhagen awards Nordhavn metro contract
Thursday, June 12, 2014

COPENHAGEN metro authority Metroselskabet has awarded the first contract for construction works on the 3km Nordhavn line, which will branch off the Cityring circle line near Østerport.

The €150m contract, which has been awarded to a consortium of Züblin and Hochtief, covers the construction of the 2km underground section of the branch, which will run in twin-bore tunnels, and the construction and fitting out of the station at Nordhavn.

Construction is due to start at the end of this year and the completed tunnels will be handed over to Metroselskabet in 2019.

Metroselskabet says Ansaldo STS will be responsible for installation of railway equipment on the extension.

The Nordhavn branch will operate as part of the future Line M4

Minerva is only a few days away from the launch, the picture is taken by local SCC member NGU.


So only Eva is missing and then all 4 TBM´s is running.

Cross-Øresund rail network proposed
30 Jun 2014



EUROPE: Proposals to extend the København metro to Malmö and develop an integrated regional rail network form an integral part of the Øresund 2070 vision unveiled during the Øresundshuset regional conference at Almedalen on June 30.

According to the President of Skanska Sweden Pierre Olofsson and his counterpart from the technical consultancy Sweco, Åsa Bergman, ‘the Øresund region is a growth engine, not only for Sweden and Denmark but for the whole Northern Europe’. Following an analysis of the region's challenges up to 2070, the two companies have prepared ‘a series of concrete proposals’ for investment to maintain and develop the region’s competitive position.

With the region’s population expected to grow by a million inhabitants over the next half century, Skanska and Sweco say this will place ‘higher demands on the transport system’, requiring investment in transport and housing plus ‘increased integration across the Strait’ to create conditions for growth and employment. To optimise the relationship between transport and housing, they envisage that much of the urban development should be concentrated in a ‘densified’ København – Malmö – Lund – Helsingborg corridor.

Skanska and Sweco suggest that investment should be focused on public transport and cycling, to reduce the need for car use, calling for more fixed links across the Øresund and the development of a regional rail hub at København Airport. Road and rail tunnels of 15 km and [email protected];km respectively are planned between Helsingborg and Helsingør, carrying both passenger and freight services. These could be built by 2025 under a 30-year PPP concession, at an estimated cost of SKr25bn. The tunnel could carry an orbital rail link connecting the current ‘Lille Nord’ route from Hillerød to Helsingør with Helsingborg, Hässleholm and Åhus.

Further south, Skanska and Sweco recommend an extension of the København metro network from Kastrup to Malmö, and greater integration of regional rail services to offer direct links between suburbs in both countries. Tram routes would be created in København, Helsingbørg, Lund and Malmö by around 2030.

A separate fixed link would carry high speed trains linking Sweden and Norway with mainland Europe, while the current Øresund link would be expanded to accomodate bicycles, connected to a 300 km network of ‘super bike paths’. A multi-level node at København Airport would provide connections between international air services, high speed and regional trains and the metro

Eva started drilling today so now all 4 machines are at work.


And Nora is now very close to break through the station box at Frederiksberg, I don't know if we talk days or weeks.

Do we know what is the average progression per work day? I must say that it looks pretty fast to me - but then again I have mostly been following tunnel projects in the Alps and, presumably, it takes much longer to hack one's way through solid granite.

@ Bongo-anders

What happens to Minerva when it has finished it's little loop around the control and maintenance center?

Won't it end up in the tube behind Nora?

No its divided in 5 stages.


Stage 1

Nora and Tria will drill from Nørrebroparken to Frederiksberg Allé.

Stage 2

Minerva and Eva will drill from the maintenance center to Søndre Boulevard


Stage 3

Nora and Tria will then be transported back to Nørrebroparken where they will drill towards Sortedams sø.


Stage 4

Minerva and Eva is turned around at Søndre Boulevard and drills towards Frederiksberg Allé.


Stage 5 Minerva and Eva is then transported to Sortedams Sø where they will drill towards the central station and Søndre Boulevard.



Hochtief and Züblin will build the tunnel to Nordhavnen, they will use 2 of their own TBM´s that will drill from Nordhavnen towards Sortedams Sø.

The contract to build the line above ground from Nordhavn to Orientkaj will be awarded in the fall.

Thanks. I'm sure that there are good reasons for doing it like that. But it sounds unnecessarily complicated

The main ring was supposed to open in 2018 but is delayed by about a year at this point. The smaller branch off to the north should open about a year after the rest, if memory serves me right (don't know how the delays affect that, though)
