Isn´t it just adding a 4th car to the current trains.

Possibly, but it would be cheaper to order 4 car trains when they replace the rolling stock, instead of rebuilding the existing trains.

I was in Copenhagen last year and I think it would be a good idea to reintroduce the tram in this city

Hm, yes perhaps, but where exactly? When I was a young man in Copenhagen people used to say "we should never have scrapped the trams". However, I have a problem with that, because the old trams were driving in the middle of the road, and once the car traffic boomed the trams got stuck in the same traffic jams as the rest. There was no added advantage of using public transport. Characteristically, the few European cities that had tramways without interruption from the 1950s to the 1990s are places like Vienna and Brussels where the trams dive underground in the centre of town. The cities that are now reintroducing trams do so on broad boulevards and suburban main axes where the trams can (at least for most of their trajectory) be granted separate lanes. I could think of a couple of main roads out of Copenhagen's city centre where trams might be great, but I don't see it as a solution for the narrow roads in the old town.

For now its only the light rail along Ring 3 that is being build but several other lines has been suggested, some more serious than others.

The most promising one is going from Herlev Hospital at Ring 3, then it will continuing along Frederikssundsvej to Nørrebro station.

Anyone know the status of the Kongens Nytorv construction? I'd love to be able to access the square the next time I visit

Funny you should ask. I actually took a video during August of this year. The square is still not able to be accessed as far as I can see.

This is how it looks at present.

The square will be re-established during 2017-2018 according to the current schedule. So if I were you, I wouldn't plan the visit before 2019.

Minerva is departed for Skjolds Plads.

Eva is being assembled in the chamber at Nørrebroparken and should follow Minerva in a not so distant future.

At Øster Søgade Nora is being assembled, she should be departing towards Østerport in 1 months time.

There are no news about Tria.

mm, not really, the overwhelming majority of the viennese tram network is above ground, with many in the city centre sharing the road. The same can be said of Prague, Amsterdam, Milan, Zurich, Turin, Rotterdam..Actually most of the cities that maintained their tramway networks still operate above ground, traffic sharing trams. I think only in Germany are those underground city centre sections relatively common.

Tram or not to tram.


Eva has started her journey from Nørrebroparken to Øster Søgade, next checkpoint is of course Nørrebro station.

Yes and no. I am no "home expert" on most of the cities you invoke. I am aware that they do have trams in the central urban environment - but as far as I know the trams mostly skirt the absolute city centre or "old town". Last time I was in Prague I saw no trams on the Charles Bridge or in the heart of the iconic Mala Strana. Last time I was in Brussels I "saw" plenty of trams underneath the Brouckiere historic quarter.

The one point I'd have to concede is Zurich. Trams in the heart of town do work well there. But IMO that's because the car drivers are so disciplined (or at least we're 20 years ago when I lived there...) that no one advanced toward a green light if they had eyed an approaching tram 200m down the road.

While it's true that there are no trams (anymore) on the Charles Bridge, there's a tram line on literally the first street from the eastern end.

http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=18/50.08601/14.41463

Also, there IS a tram line going through Malá Strana right through the central square. Really hard to miss actually.

Well, I guess we shall have to agree to disagree about the word "heart" then? I would have considered the Carmelite Street as (per my earlier posting) peripheral. My point of reference is the very centre of old Copenhagen where, prior to the second WW, trams ran through quarters that are these days either pedestrians-only or clogged with cars and diesel-pouting busses.

I have posted a Google map of my take on buses in Copenhagen before, and somebody asked for a map with the Cityring included. This was more challenging, as some routes that are popular today would become excessive with the metro. This has led to some major route changes, some of which include:
  • Line 3A removed, 1A now takes that route instead of going through the centre.
  • Line 8A (18) shortened, some of Jagtvej now served by line 42
  • Line 10A (11A) reintroduced as local bus in the centre
  • Lines through the old town again via Nørregade
And many other minor changes. I would be more than happy to get critique, comments and reasoning behind your thoughts

Please note the light rail on ring 3 is not included, as it is practically line 300S/330E on rails.

Map is here. Please note editing is on for you to be able to follow routes more easily. Try not to change anything, and if you do, there is always the undo button
The table with detailed information about headways, bus size and routing is located HERE

Please do ask, I will be more than happy to discuss this unrealistic vision!

Tunnel drilling has started on the last stage of the circle line, its Nora that has started her trip from Øster Søgade to København H (central station) through the central core of the city.

Next stop will be Østerport station in 1-2 months time.

Her sibling Tria will start on in 1-2 months time.


If no one beats me to it I will post the progress map when I get home from work tonight.


A 5th and yet unnamed TBM will drill the 2 tunnels between Nordhavn and Øster Søgade and will start from Nordhavn in the summer, I think that June has been mentioned.
