I was almost right but mostly wrong


The construction period has been moved forward from 2020-2024 to 2018-2023.

EU funds Aalborg Airport rail link study
Wednesday, November 05, 2014



European Union Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA) has allocated Denmark €500,000 from the TEN-T Programme to fund preliminary technical and environmental studies for a main line rail link to Aalborg Airport

Danish infrastructure manager Banedanmark is developing plans for the 3km line, which will branch off the existing Aalborg – Frederikshavn line north of Lindholm.

Public consultation concluded last December and the environmental impact assessment is due to be completed next year.

Construction is expected to begin in 2016 with commissioning scheduled for 2019

COBE, Dissing + Weitling and COWI won the competition to build the Køge Nord Station on the Copenhagen-Ringsted high speed line.

A more detailed map of the 2 proposed alignments of the Vestfyen high speed line.

That's a minuscule difference. It seems to boil down ore or less to where to build a bridge over a motorway...

Since Banedanmark isn´t so good at doing photo updates like their counterpart Vejdirektoratet one must do it



So here are pictures from the new Copenhagen-Ringsted high speed line taken around Solrød and Køge Nord.



First pictures are from Solrød Byvej


Looking north





And south







In Køge they are constructing a flyunder, or is it a flyover










The railway between Køge and Roskilde (called Lille Syd) will also pass under the new line and that happens just south of the flyunder as the flyunder will connect to Lille Syd on the other side of the motorway.
















Here they are digging the flyunder









As if 5 cranes isn´t enough there are 3 more behind the future Køge Nord station.

South of all of this they are preparing to build the railwayline, here it will be elevated up to 12 meters above ground as it has to pass a road that is already passing the motorway on a bridge.

As i talked about Vejdirektoratets photo updates I might aswell show the ones where there has sneaked some railway lines in.


The small tunnel is for the new railway.





Here they are building the tunnel under Egedesvej





Its clear on these aerial where the railroad will be.

The Long awaited IC 2/IC4 report is finally here.

The main points are..

In 2019 to have 74 out of 105 sets (82 IC4 and 23 IC2) in service.
Also in 2019 to have each trainset to run 20.000 kilometres without incidents.

All 74 trainsets to run without restrictions with lower speed limits or trains not coupled together.


5 out of the last 31 trainsets has been used for spareparts, it was the first 5 delivered.

It seems like its just an added bonus if they get the last 26 trains going.

The budget is only for the 74 trains mentioned before, its 1,5 million kroner for each trainset to get them work properly.

The future high speed line out of Copenhagen is progressing with construction sites all the way from Copenhagen to east of Ringsted.


The flyunder south of Køge Nord Station is one big mess when seen from the outside but I´m sure they got the hang of it.

Lyntog in Copenhagen 1968




I think this was the international train Hamburg-Copenhagen. It looks like the german TEE-train.

Actually, no. The Danish train is based upon the German TEE-train, but can be decoupled in the middle and continue as two independent trains. This was to facilitate the ferry crossing between the main isles in Denmark, and also allow for direct trains to smaller destinations with fewer passengers. The first 'Lyntog' in Denmark was in 1935, derived from another German train, der Fliegende Hamburger.

An very detailed article in the Rail Engineer, "the cost of failure" about the IC4 dmus from AnsaldoBreda.

It was hoped that the electrification between Esbjerg and Lunderskov (i.e. between western and eastern Jutland) would be finished in 2015. However, because of "problems with finding a contractor who could do this in accelerated time" (the explanation put forward by the track operator Banedanmark on its website) it has been delayed to the second half of 2016.

As noted before Banedanmark doesn´t make any aerial photos of the new high speed line between Copenhagen and Ringsted so we will have to do with Vejdirektoratets aerials of the Køge Bugt motorway widening.


Here between Tåstrupvej and the motorway, north of Cementvej.




Egedesvej just north of the future Køge Nord station, the exit is build because the station will facilitate a park and ride park with 2.700 parking spaces.




Here at Lyngvej the railway will pass the intersection on the west side of the motorway 12 meters above ground.




Not much have happened here since the last picture I posted.




The outline of the railway is very clear





The flyunder, Køge Nord statiion and Egedesvej is visible in the background.





At Solrød Byvej the brige over the railway (and motorway) is now in use and the old bridge has been removed.

I have been on a photo tour around Køge and here are my shots of the railway construction on the northern part of Køge.


Køge Nord station.








Here we north of Lyngvej.
