Progress on the Køge Nord station S-train platform and surrounding area.


They are about to lift the part of the Ølsemaglevej bridge that isn´t demolished.

The part of the bridge over the motorway was demolished last weekend to make way for 2 extra lanes on the motorway and for 4 tracks at the high speed line on the other side of the motorway.









The platforms at Køge Nord is being constructed while the S-train line is closed anyways.

The 2 long distance platforms are located on the other side of the motorway.

Am using your public transport system at the moment. Very interesting indeed - seen a LOT of construction for the metro. Will be sharing some videos and what not later.

Nora is on her way to the division chamber at Sortedamssøen/Øster Søgade from the division chamber at Søndre Boulevard.

From Øster Søgade Nora and Tria will drill anti clockwise to København H.

The day that at least I have been waiting for has come.


The first stage is now done as Tria has arrived at Sønder Boulevard.


So now the longest and shortest stages of drilling is done.


Minerva and Eva has been transported to Nørrebroparken and Minerva should very soon start her journey towards Øster Søgade and Eva sometimes after.

Status is that Minerva is expected at Nørrebro station sometime this autumn and so should Eva.


Nora has been transported to Øster Søgade (I think) and Tria will very soon be dismantled and transported the same way.


Status here is that the first machines will reach Østerport station autumn 2015 (presumably Nora) and the last one winter 2016.

Update on the Nordhavn station.

The station box is ready this autumn, when that is done they will preparing the arrival of the TBM.

The TBM will start drilling towards Øster Søgade next sommer and the machine will do both tubes..

Finally !!!!!!!!!!


Minerva has started to move towards Nørrebro station.


The first few weeks she will move a little bit slower because the end of the TBM will be attached before they can pick up speed.

I´m guessing that the entire machine can´t fit down in the chamber so she has to drill some meters in order to make room for the end part.

Eva will start her journey in the fall.

How much work is being done in the tunnels already dug? Will they complete the interiors before the next sections of tunnel are done digging or are they aiming at all sections getting done at the same time?

The tunnel between Otto Bussesvej and Sønder Boulevard is tracked and ready for test runs with the new trains.


The only thing I can see that is different from the other stages is that they will do test runs in both 2017 and 18 but on the other stages will only have test runs in 2018.


But I can see that the overground constructions (station square, rebuilding the streets etc) will end way much before, 2016 and 17 for the first stage and 2017 and 18 for the other stages.


The stations will be completed on the first stages no later than 2017 and the other stations will be done in 2018.

So, here we go. I had three days in Copenhagen and got a feel for the public transport there. Here are some views of the metro system to start us off.

FIrst up - Ørestad station. We actually got off the Öresundståg at Ørestad station and took the metro up to DN Byen, which was close to where we stayed whilst we were in Copenhagen.







The nice thing about the Copenhagen metro is that it is driverless, so you can get some cool views.







Amagerbro station was actually the closest station to where we stayed. It is served by the M2.








Kongens Nytorv is one of the busiest stations in Copenhagen. It is served by both the M1 and M2 lines and will soon be served by the M3 and M4 as well. It is located in the centre of the old town.

The enviromental study of the Sydhavns branch of the M4 metro is now in public hearing.





http://www.blivhoert.kk.dk/hoering/m...vm-redeg-relse


The study is in danish but some headlines are

4 underground stations (Fisketorvet, Enghave Brygge, Sluseholmen, Mozarts Plads) and one on ground level (Ny Ellebjerg)

Alternatively they can put Ny Ellebjerg in a tunnel as well so its prepared for further extensions of the line.
A underground platform will also be better integrated with the other platforms.
The Ring line platforms will however be relocated.
If they do this they would save the expenses of build a division chamber that would otherwise be located at Haydnsvej

18 departures every hour

Travel time from Mozarts Plads to Rådhuspladsen (City Hall Square) will be 9 minutes.

The line will be 4,5 kilometers long

A chamber for a track turnout will be located at Enghave Brygge

The tunnel working site will be located at Enghave Brygge as well.

The TBM´s will be at work between 2019 and 2021

The line opens in 2023

Civil works will start as early as 2017 with archaeological studies during 2016.

Its fair to say that its silence before the storm at the metro construction.


Status is this.

Minerva is on her way from Nørrebroparken towards Øster Søgade/Sortedamssø.

Eva is at Nørrebroparken but is right now being assembled down in the chamber so it can't be long before she's departing as well.


At Øster Søgade both Nora and Tria has arrived.

They will soon start to assembling Nora and she will be on her way towards København H on 2 months time.

Tria will follow up 1-2 months after her.

Minerva has reached Nørrebro station, Nørrebro will be the 5 busiest station on the metro system when done.

Will the ring line be opened as a one finished work (in one piece)or they will keep opening it partly - like 5-6 stations then after a certain time some more stn.s?

The plan is to open the lines at once, that is June 2019.

The extension of M4 to Ny Ellebjerg will open in 2023 and in M4 northern end it will be extended beyond Orientkaj but no timeline has been revealed for that one.

So when the Lines open in 2019 then M3 will run on the entire circle.

M4 will run from Orientkaj in the north to København H (Central station) but it will reverse down at the CMT.

As part of this, are they ordering new trains for the older lines too? I did notice that they were looking really quite tired and surprisingly dirty when I was there (the only downside of the metro system in my opinion).

Unfortunately no. But when they do, they have the option of buying 4 car trains, thereby increasing train capacity by 25-30%.
