It is more of a rapid transit system and is more in common with Hamburg and Berlins S-bahn than a "normal" german S-Bahn.

It shares no tracks or signalling system with the Regionaltog (our version of a commuter rail) and long distance trains.

Even the overhead lines is different at 1,650 V DC Overhead lines while the normal railroads are at 25 kV 50 Hz AC.

Its also grade seperated from all traffic methods meaning no railroad crossings etc. and besides a small bridge near Farum Station the line is either double or quadruple tracked.

MT Højgaard has been choosen to outfit all the stations on the M3/4 circle line.

All floors will be made of granite.
The walls will be made of one or more of these materials, terracotta, limestone, granite and brick and will be made in 5 different colours.

One of my friends work at the metro and he has taken this picture from somewhere behind Minerva.

Minerva is at the moment located around Eskildsgade in the Vesterbro district.

Eva has reached Sønder Boulevard and therefore also the city circle itself





Tria and Nora should also be very close to respectively Frederiksberg and Frederiksberg Allé

Impressive, bongo-anders. Where do you find these maps showing drilling progress? I have been looking on m.dk but they don't seem to provide such detailed information.

Otto Busses Gade to Sønder Boulevard is 800 meters and I think the distance between the other stations are around 1,5 kilometers so the central core is closer to 6 kilometers of drilled tunnel than 8.

Remember that the total circle is around 21-22 kilometers with 15 stations.

Rolling stock

I have been reading the railway magazines' coverage of the recent Innotrans transport fair. One of the very few things the press in the UK, France and Germany can agree on is that the new metro trains for Copenhagen, which were displayed at the fair, are unbelievably "spartan" in the sense that there are almost no seats in them. - Now, the Metro company has already announced that there will be "fewer" seats in the trains on the ring line, but what they have in mind (I've seen photos) is truly extreme by most international measures. Does anyone know why they go so far in that direction? My best personal guess is that, although this is a circular line, they expect the vast majority of the passengers to spend only a few minutes in train, traveling through the centre of town between the main railway station and Oesterport.

Yes, they are indeed spartan. But as you also mention, the longest ride will be 12 minutes. In addition, the lines that feed the circle line cross it twice. S-train and regional trains cross at Østerport and København H, M1/M2 crosses at Kongens Nytorv/Frederiksberg. With that in mind, I suspect that most trips will be less than 6 minutes.

They removed seats from the M1/M2 lines, citing improved capacity and better passenger circulation within the train.

As stated before most trips will be under 10 minutes so its only the old people and pregnant womens (or people with a injury) that need the seats.

New updates from the metro´s website.

As you can see all 4 machines are drilling atm so no one is sidding still at one of the stations.

Normally they are at each station for 2-3 weeks to repair the drilling head etc.

My prediction is that the first TBM to reach the next station is Nora at Frederiksberg Allé followed by Minerva at København H (Central Station).

And about time, it arrived at Frederiksberg by the end of august so maybe a huge repair job was done at Frederiksberg.

Another reason could be that the Carlsberg Fault that is located in this area was a big obstacle.

Here is the metro company´s own words on the breakthrough
Tria is expected at Frederiksberg Allé in 2 months time but there is no word on why Nora used over twice as much time.
