It looks pretty much like the rest of the elevated stations, except for the fact that it is indoors, and has a pretty neat view of the CPH-Malmö highway, as well as the Hilton CPH Airport Hotel.

^ It doubles capacity on the busiest part of the ring. The idea is that sometime in the future the orange line (M4) will be extended towards the suburbs as the arrows indicate, but for now it'll just be a congestion reliever.

It is the first full subway in Kbh. The S-tog system is in a subway (along with the rest of the rail lines) in the centre of the city for about two stations but wouldn't really be considered a subway.

It is the first subway/underground per se, ie. a system that mainly run underground - but Copenhagen already had a large metro system before; the S-tog system.

[Copennhagen] Metro set to begin round the clock service

As far as I know, the Copenhagen Metro will be the second system in the world to have 24/7 operation after NYC, and the first system to have its entire network served 24 hours (there's a couple of stations in NYC not served 24h iirc?).

Metro set to begin round the clock service

Thursday, 12 March 2009 10:55 KR News

Starting next week, underground passengers be able to catch a train any time of the day

Copenhagen’s Metro is to begin running 24 hours a day, seven days a week, closing a four hour gap on weekdays during which the underground railway closes.

The new extended service start on Monday and will see all 34 of the remotely controlled trains running day and night.
Anne-Grethe Foss, Metro’s chief executive, believes that there are enough commuters to warrant the service.

‘We have had many enquiries from the airport and other major companies that want their employees to be able to travel at night,’ Foss told public service broadcaster DR.

She added that the move would give greater freedom to Copenhagen residents looking to make their way home after a night on the town.

It will still be necessary to shut the Metro lines down for six nights during the year to carry out essential maintenance work.

Now if only it didn't cost double at night...

I think there are other systems in the US that run 24/7. Chicago has at least a line or two that do, which all have to be as long as the entire Copenhagen system.

How big is the network? only 34 trains. Is it a small metro and a bigger s-bahn system?

If only the Tube could be 24 hours. It probably will be for the olympics for 2 weeks!

FREKI drives his beloved car anyway.


Republica,
Yes, the Metro system is mainly a people mover within the inner city, whereas the S-tog system is a suburban metro system similar to Stockholm/Oslo T-bana with over 100 stations.

Unfortunely it is impossible for the Tube, it need heavy maintance.
Anyway I think that London DLR could run 24/7.

Don't all systems require heavy maintenance? So why is London SO special?

Well, most systems dont run 24 hours...

I believe that a combination of them being incredibly old, a lack of spare track or 4 track that can be worked on and a lack of investment in the post war era when it looked like everyone would drive a car.

Is Copenhagens Airport operating 24/7 too? Then it would be a wise decision introducing round the clock service.

The Metros (U-Bahn and S-Bahn) in Berlin and Hamburg only have 24 hour-service at weekends.

London is not special, Paris metro need also heavy maintenance.
I think it is also the case of more recent system like Moscow, Tokyo, Hong Kong... subway.
These could look perfect but are heavely used, I don't think that it would be possible without night maintenance.

That's right.
Chicago loop is the only special case that I know where a subway in a bad condition run 24/7 without having four tracks.

Because it gives me an alternative when alcohol is involved...

Only problem is that a normal night out here rarely ends before the day services have started, so I doubt it will have much influence on me..

But on a positive side note it might bring more life to the Ørestad district and hopefully also investment

Well the airport already have regional rail there 24/7 and night buses, but the 24/7 metro will be a nice addition too ( probable make a lot of the night staff happy too )

As Copenhagen city prepares itself for one the largest construction projects ever, the new Ring Metro, I noticed that this thread had slipped to page 18!
As new information about the project is published frequently, I think it is time to start breathing life into this thread.

I´ll start with a diagram showing the new metro´s relation to the other forms of rail transport, regional trains, S-trains, and the first 2 metro lines from Vanløse to Vest Amager and the Airport respectively.

[IMG]http://i31.************/rk6654.jpg[/IMG]

Her are a series of sketch designs of how the Ring Metro interchanges with the Main station Copenhagen C;

[IMG]http://i30.************/24xqg5s.jpg[/IMG]

and Kongens Nytorv where it interchanges with the exsisting metro;

[IMG]http://i28.************/neiwy9.jpg[/IMG]

and a similar interchange at Frederiksberg. Note the listed original station buildings from when Frederiksberg was served by a normal railway. It is now a restaurant.
