Oke, that's fast.
The whole circle line is done with 2 24/7 teams?
(2019 isn't that late compared to some irrelevant dutch project.)

Its now confirmed that the metro will be delayed with 7 months because of the many complaints and lawsuits.

http://m.dk/#!/om+metroen/nyheder/ny...robuste+rammer



The City Circle line will have new and robust framework
With the parliamentary adoption of the new metrolov and a new timetable for the opening of the City Circle is again a clear framework for subway construction.

After the parliamentary adoption of a new law to ensure a clear framework for subway construction, the Metro company over the summer negotiated a new schedule with the contractors on the City Circle. The negotiations have now been completed and means that Cityringen opening set for July 2019, seven months later than originally anticipated.

Thus, there is a clear and robust framework for the rest of the construction period on the City Circle, which replaces the changing environment and many construction stop that has characterized the Metro construction in the past year.
*
The result of the negotiations between Metro company and contractors Copenhagen Metro Team and Ansaldo STS means that significant uncertainties about the project is limited significantly. The agreement provides that:

Cityringen opening date determined to July to 2019.
Cityringen capital budget increased overall by 4 per cent., Equivalent to 1.0 billion. kr.
The 4 per cent. covers two items: expenses due to the increased construction period (EUR 0.7 billion. kr.) - and additional costs to neighboring damages as a result of the new law (0.3 billion. kr.).
Moreover lost passenger revenue and higher interest payments on 0.2 billion. kr.
The total cost of the delay thus constitute 1.2 billion. kr.
The schedule is simplified, so reporting of progress in the future can be simplified. This follows Metroselskabet NAOD recommendations to make reporting schedule more unique.

It introduces additional incentives to ensure rapid progress and increase the focus on the work environment.
Contract terms on pay and working conditions tightened so Metroselskabet are better able to take action against subcontractors if they do not meet the contract requirements for compliance with applicable wage and employment.
Metro company's Chairman, Mr Christophersen, would recommend the Board to join the new agreement. He says:

"The metro project has been through a difficult period of many construction ban in the past year. Transport Minister and Parliament have the law guaranteed fixed limits for the remainder of the construction period, and with Metroselskabet new agreement, we look forward to put an end to this process and move forward so that we can finalize the City Circle to the delight of the many future passengers, citizens and guests of the capital. "

"We've got a sensible outcome to the negotiations, and with the new law restricted the substantial risk that was too large delays and cost overruns if the vague boundaries of the project continued. At the same time, the agreement contains important initiatives to provide Metroselskabet better chance of ensuring decent wages and working conditions and a good working environment among all employees on the project, "adds Mr Christophersen.

Metro Company's Board will hear the case at its next meeting on. 29th August where they will decide to discontinue the agreement for approval by the Metro company's owners, the state, the City of Copenhagen and Frederiksberg.

A short description of the case.


The old schedule depended on a 24 hour working schedule but the Construction Act didn´t specify that it also involved the construction of the stations.


So alot of people around Nørrebroparken, Central Station and Marmorkirken complained about the high level of noise in the late evenings.


This new act will make up for this but alot of time has been used on it.

Nora has reached Frederiksberg.


[IMG]http://i62.************/1nz5hi.jpg[/IMG]



Nora has drilled 2,5 kilometers and Tria 1,6 kilometers and should be very close to Aksel Møllers Have.

Minerva and Eva has only drilled a few 100 meters each.

They are certainly trying to do so, using the metro line as a catalyst for development, and financing the metro line by selling land to investors. It's roughly the same model used for the ørestad metro line.

It wouldn't surprise me if they extended the line further to the cruise ship terminal.

The second stage of Nordhavnsmetroen (or possible the full monty) is expected in 2028/29 and will eventual do a full circle around Nordhavnen.

I don´t now if they will do it in one take or in stages.
As this line is going to be build over ground is therefore possible to build one or 2 stations at a time as the city developement continues.

So in short its nowhere to say if they will expand out to the cruisepier before that date.

Alsaldo STS will introduce the new rolling stock for M3 and M4 at this year's Innotrans in Berlin later this month.

I hope to see some pictures of the interior as I'm guessing it will look alot like the current fleet on the outside.

the working schedule has changed.



[IMG]http://i60.************/16jesyh.jpg[/IMG]




Nora and Tria First had to drill from Nørrebroparken to Frederiksberg Allé

Now thay are drilling to Sønder Boulevard instead.


Instead of being transported back to Nørrebroparken they will instead be transported to Øster Søgade where they will drill through the city center to København H.


Minerva and Eva will drill towards København H as previous planned but instead of being turned around at Sønder Boulevard and drill to Frederiksberg Allé they will be transported to Nørrebroparken and then drill towards Øster Søgade.

Tria has reached Aksel Møllers Have so now there are 3 stations out of 17 that are connected by both tunnels.


It doesn´t looks like the progress map is updated but when it is I will post it.


Some small facts.


Nora has drilled 2,5 kilometers
Tria has drilled almost 2 kilometers


The total amount that is drilled are 5,5 kilometers (out of 31,5) so Minerva and Eva has drilled a little bit more that 1 kilometers so I think that Minerva is very very close to Sønder Boulevard.

All looks the same, but really what's the difference between M1/M2 and M3/M4 line models?

There is more standing room compared to the old one and the seats looks more easy to clean, oohh and the headlights are different


Another small difference is the routemap on the ceiling.







But you do off course ask for technical differences and I´m not sure if there are any.

The top speed is 80 km/h and that is the same as the old one.
