So now there's just a one station gap in the tunnel ring!

Since the digging seems to go so smoothly I was wondering if the soil conditions are similar og predictable for the whole project?

But Minerva has finished the outer tube and Nora will finish the inner tube so we will have to wait for the 3rd breakthrough (4th if you count Nordhavnslinien) before we have a complete tunnel.

I believe that the bedrock under Frederiksberg and Vesterbro was a little bit harder to drill because of something called the Carlsberg fault (Carlsberg forkastningen)

The consortium MetNord that builds the metro line between Øster Søgade and Orientkaj has trashed a very old record done by the Comet consortium that build the first metro lines.

Somewhere between February 1998 and February 2001 one of the TBM´s (I´m not sure if its Betty or Liva) escavated 53,2 meters of tunnel in 24 hours.

But a few days ago Frida drilled 56,19 meters of tunnel during 24 hours so its a new Copenhagen record.


And here is a qoute from the head of tunneling (name is missing)


"It is true that the underground (the geology) is very good for tunnelling in the section we are in. However, this only makes the actual excavation quicker. In order to achieve such a high total advance rate, it is necessary for all the TBM functions to work very efficiently such as:
- No mechanical or electrical breakdowns
- the TBM logistics function 100% ie, the TBM trains can supply the tunnel segments fast enough to follow the excavation
- no stoppages due to quality or safety issues

Such high advances are only possible due to careful planning, experienced crews, good teamwork and yes, a little luck!"

Our hard working TBM crew has gone on a deserved christmas holiday

They have parked Nora under the northwestern part of Tivoli and will resume work on January the 2nd.
The last short trip under Bernstoffsgade and the central station will take 3-4 weeks time, so that is probably something like 10-20 meters a day.
So that makes the record, made by Frida and her crew more spectacular.

Tria and Eva that are at Rådhuspladsen and Trianglen at the moment for maintenance work etc, will both start on their last leg around January the 3rd.

All 3 TBM´s (+ Frida on Nordhavnslinien) are up and running again after the christmas break so in a months time all the tunnels on the circle line are done.

Frida is expected at Øster Søgade around March.

Cabride on S-train line E Køge Holte





And to follow it up all the way from Holte to Hillerød then here is Line A from Hundige to Hillerød, Hundige Holte is off course a repeat of the video with Line E but with more stops.






Line C from Klampenborg to Frederikssund.






And Line B from Høje Taastrup to Farum





And Line F (the circle line)

Nora has reached the central station so its 3 down, 3 to go.


The first complete tube should be done on Thursday when Eva has finished her duty.

So now there's tunnels dug all the way around the ring! Any news articles on that?

Yes and no.

The 2 completed sections are the Inner and outer tube.

But on Thursday when Eva reaches Øster Søgade, Then we have a complete circle.

Eva reached Øster Søgade a day ahead of shedule.

So now we have a complete tube on all the 15,5 kilometers.

Since the Køge Nord station on the Copenhagen-Ringsted high speed line also has a S-train station I quess that these pictures fit in here as well.


Sheet piling at the S train platforms are in full swing in preperation for the bridge pillars for the pedestrian bridge.


The S-train platforms are on the left side of this picture.

New passenger record for the S-Train, its just in Danish but headlines are.

116,3 million passengers
+1,9%
+21% since 2010
Not considering outside factors then the S-train was on time 98,4% of the time.

If we count broken rails, electrical wires falling down, people hit by the train then its only 92,6%

http://takeoff.dk/s-tog-saetter-rekord-i-2016/





The Metro also had a record number of passengers, the number looks like this

60.891.193
+6,5%
New on time record +99,2%

Then it looks like I was very unlucky during my visit to Copenhagen in May last year: I took the S-train from Nørreport to Hillerød to visit Frederiksborg Slot, and the train took almost 2 hours to arrive there (instead of the expected 39 minutes), including a change of train at one of the intermediate stations. I guess it was due to a technical problem.

Nevertheless I found it a great system, overall. Pretty good frequencies and trains. I also took the Lokalbanen from Hillerød to Helsingør and then the Øresundstog back from Helsingør to Nørreport and everything worked fine.

Really looking forward to visiting the city again once the Cityringen opens.

You are sure it wasn´t under one of the planned closures.

The line from Jægersborg and up to Hillerød is the Early Deployment line for the CBTC signaling system.


But under any circumstances it shouldn´t take 2 hours

It was on a Saturday at noon and the trains worked, albeit stopping for a long time (around 15 minutes) at some of the stations. There were some audio messages which I guess were informing of the problem, but as they were in Danish I don't know what they said.

We could eventually reach Hillerød, so in the end that's what matters.

By the way, I found quite "difficult" to buy train tickets at Nørreport station. Coming from Rosenborg Slot we entered through an access to the station which led directly to the S-train platform, but it didn't have ticket machines. We had to ask people on the platform about where we could buy tickets, and then we had to leave the platform through another access at the opposite end of it where there were two tickets machines, but one of them was out of order and in the other one there was a long line.

We could finally buy the tickets but in the meantime we missed two trains bound for Hillerød. Then in the evening I saw there's an above ground hall on the square just above the station with more ticket machines, but of course you don't see it if you enter the station from the access next to Rosenborg Slot. Perhaps there should be some kind of information for tourists and sporadic users about where to buy tickets, or simply ticket machines at all accesses.
