There are a several solutions, from optimizing the work routines to building a 13 billion DKK tunnel to Østerport.

The report is in danish but I can post a link to it when I get on my computer.

My computer didn't feel like it had to open the internet so if you want to see the report just go to the Nordic & Baltic forum.
In the danish subforum I have posted the link in the infrastructure thread.

A contract to build a 500 metre long bridge and 400 metre of ramps over Holbæk motorway and the Motorring 4 motorway on the new high speed line between Copenhagen and Ringsted has been given to Barslund og CG Jensen.

The contract price is 350 million Danish kroner.

Here is a large illustration of the bridge, notice that the inbound lanes on Holbæk motorway is hidden behind the railway to the right in the picture.

The poles for the street lights is visible as a white stripe just above the railway, the the street lights are as you can see on the other motorways in the picture suspended on wires between the poles.

I have tried to point it out on a map.

Study sets out ways to cut Denmark - Hamburg journey times
30 Jan 2014



Bridge over the Kiel Canal at Rendsburg (Photo: DB/Günter Jazbec).
A tunnel could avoid the spiral needed to access the bridge over the Kiel Canal at Rendsburg (Photo: DB/Günter Jazbec).


EUROPE: Passenger journey times on the 337 km route between Aarhus in Denmark and Hamburg in Germany could be reduced by 97 min to 2 h 53 min without requiring major infrastructure works, according to a study undertaken by Atkins on behalf of 17 local authorities.

Atkins has produced a series of proposals to speed up services:
  • 27 min would be saved if all trains were to travel at the speed of the fastest current DSB and DB services on the corridor;
  • 17 min could be saved by reducing the number of stops to five;
  • Time would be saved by stopping trains at Flensburg-Weiche station on the direct line, rather than the more central main station which is situated on a loop. This has been agreed by the local authority.
Between 15 and 27 min would be saved as a result of upgrading works planned for 2015-25, including:
  • Track doubling underway between Vamdrup and Vojens;
  • Electrification and resignalling which is now underway;
  • Work to eliminate tight curves which has been approved under Denmark's national project to offer 1 h journey times between main cities.
In the longer term, a tunnel under the Kiel Canal at Rendsburg would eliminate the 4·4 km spiral used to gain height to cross the ship canal on a combined rail and transporter bridge.

The cost of the works in the Flensburg and Rendsburg areas is still to be calculated, but the local authorities are to explore options to develop the scheme.

The reduced journey times would be competitive with Aarhus - Hamburg car journeys, which Atkins says take around 3 h 20 min. Atkins estimates that ridership between Jylland and Hamburg could increase by 500 000 journeys/year, doubling current traffic, and regional passenger journeys could grow by 60%.

One of the largest tender package on the Copenhagen Ringsted railwayline has been signed.

Per Aarsleff A/S will build Kulbanetunnellen on 700 metres, Hvidovretunnellen on 570 metres and a 1310 metres long trough along the Holbækmotorway.

The price is 915 million danish kroner.

An image of the flyover west of Ringsted.

The upper level is the new high speed line between Odense and Copenhagen over Køge Nord.

The lower level is for trains coming from Copenhagen over Roskilde and towards the fehmarn fixed link.


As you can see it will be possible to get from the Fehmarn line towards the new high speed line without crossing any tracks.

But in the other direction the train has to pass the inbound Roskilde track east of Ringsted station.

Out of curiosity, how are the IC 4 trains holding up nowadays? Has their performance improved since the last set was delivered?

Some work has started but its mostly relocation of pipes and other underground installations but some road bridges in the Copenhagen suburbs is well underway.

There has been signed contracts for almost 4 billion DKK in the first fase that is construction of road bridges and tunnels and the large bridge over the Motorring 4 motorway and the 2 tunnels in Hvidovre.

Most of these works will start here in 2014 so the pace will get up in the next few months.

As far as I recall the only tenders that needs to be signed are the Køge Nord Station and road bridges and tunnels from Køge Nord to Ringsted.

The contract for the railway itself and catenarys will be be offered on a later stage.

I live a few 100 metres from the new station in Køge Nord so I'm planning to take some pictures from there but also from the flyover (or is it under) that will connect this line to the Lille Syd line.

There are some pictures in the Copenhagen Subforum taken by others that shows the progress on the inner part of the section.

Copenhagen Airport considering high-speed rail station
19 FEB, 2014


Artist impression of Copenhagen Airport's high-speed station. Image: CPH

An expansion of Copenhagen Airport (CPH) could include building a new high-speed rail station, according to chief executive Thomas Woldbye.

Presenting a 25-year masterplan for the airport’s future, Woldbye said a new high-speed railway station could be built to bring travellers from Oslo and Hamburg to the airport.

Woldbye said the new station would play a major part in meeting the airport’s ambitions of doubling its annual passenger numbers. The plans include a series of projects designed to bring 40 million passengers to the airport each year.

Rather than constructing a new terminal, CPH is looking to increase the capacity of its existing infrastructure.

Currently rail links to and from the airport subsist of a regular metro service from Terminal 3 to Copenhagen’s Nørreport Station and regional Oresundtrain services to Copenhagen Central Station.

The station has to bew build anyway because of capacity constraints on the railways around the current station.


The problem is that freight trains bound for Sweden will have to cross passenger trains coming from Sweden (an the airport station) on the same level in order to reach the freight train bypass.

Freight trains are not allowed in the airport stations because of safety issues but the plan is to run the traffic as directional operation.

So the current 2 passenger platforms will be for trains heading for Sweden and 2 new platforms at the bypass will be for trains heading towards Copenhagen or Storebælt/Fehmarn fixed links.

There will be build some safety devices in the passenger train tunnels so freight trains will be allowed to run in the tunnels.


The airport is then planning on removing the P7 parking garage that is located between the current station and the bypass and build a proper train station above the old and new station.

Companies invited to prequalify for Fehmarnbelt contract
24 FEB, 2014

Femern A/S has invited companies to apply for pre-qualification to supply the electrical and mechanical systems for a planned 18-kilometre immersed tunnel between Germany and Denmark.

The fixed link tunnel, which will connect the German island of Fehmarn with the Danish island of Lolland, will reduce the current journey time by ferry from 45 minutes to seven minutes by rail.

The Fehmarnbelt tunnel is due to open in 2021.

Here is a project video of the 9 billion DKK railway that will connect the Fehmarn tunnel with the mainline in Ringsted.

It has English subtitles.

Old news, see post 519


The Hovedgård - Aarhus line and Aarhus - Silkeborg lines will first be decided in 2024 if the budget is kept on the other projects.
