Marmorkirken (Marble Church) is the only stations with the platforms atop of each other because the construction site is very constrained.


So you can figure out that the construction site looks nothing like the others, so here are the latest photos from Marmorkirken.

No this is the upper platform (level 4 out of 7) 25 meters below ground.


If they are according to plan they should have started to dig out level 5 and 6 in the start of this month, the lower platform is located at level 6 and ventilation etc etc at level 5.


Here is a very basic drawing but you get the idea

How have you received access to the metro sites? Do you work for one of the companies involved?

So, soon it's back to top capacity with all four drills running at full pace. Do we know when the expect the actual tunneling to be finished? I know that the (first part of) the new line is expected sometime in 2019. Presumably that means that they must be done with the drilling before end-2016?

If you look at the schedule for the last stations (København H, Trianglen), the schedule says fall/winter of 2016. So a good guess

It seems that Eva is moving again. This pic just went online on the Metro website.

And its soon Christmas and its celebrated in fashion.

Here are some of my own pictures of Flintholm station.

In the lower level you will find the S-train circle line (Line F) and on the upper level you find the Frederikssundsbanen on the S-train system (Line C and H) and line M1 and M2 on the metro.

New progress map


Minerva has started her journey towards Vibenshus Runddel.

Eva is not long after Minerva and will break through at Skjolds Plads sometime in february.

Nora has reached Østerport.

Tria is still at Øster Søgade, the latest reports are that she will start drilling by the end of January and will reach Østerport this spring (probably March)


The 2 yet unnamed tbm´s that are drilling from Nordhavn to Øster Søgade is planned to start up during the summer.

Interesting, thanks. I confess I had assumed (without fact-checking at all) that two of the TBMs from the circular line would be transferred to the Nordhavn after finishing their duties. But on second thought I see that this would put the Nordhavn extension back by at least a couple of years relative to the published plans. Still, it seems like a bit of a luxury to commission two TBMs to create a total of 2 metro stations. - Will they at least, do you know, be used also in the subsequent extension of the metro into the southern docks?

The TBMs are owned by the contractors not the metro company, and the Nordhavn line are constructed by another contractor than the Cityring. If the Sydhavn line will be awarded to one of these contractors, we will see reuse of TBMs.

Tria departed for Østerport Yesterday, the progress map will probably be updated after the weekend but the metro company posted this picture just before the launch.

It also means that all of the 4 TBM´s are in work now.

The structure in front of the drilling head is a socalled fake tunnel, its purpose is to let the TBM get some momentum before breaking the wall in the box.
