I just HAD to share this with you. It's from the Railway Gazette:

"National passenger operator DSB presented its annual report for 2014 on February 26, with Chairman Peter Schütze and Acting CEO Stig Pastwa saying it has achieved its objectives under the ‘Healthy DSB’ programme to improve its financial performance, punctuality and reputation.

Ridership was up 2% on the previous year to 190·2 million, which DSB said was helped by improved punctuality, easier access to ticketing including via electric media, and increased bicycle capacity on the S-tog network."

To me that's unbelievable! I'm a Danish citizen, but I've lived in Paris for almost 20 years. My local metro line (Number 4 - one of 14 lines) takes 193 million passengers per year. It seems that one single Parisian metro line transports more passengers per year than the whole of the DSB ?????

Why would that be so surprising? Metropolitan Paris is about twice as populous as entire Denmark and in very big cities much larger percentage of people depend on public transport.

Have noticed you time from time like to compare the passenger numbers of CPH/Denmark with Paris. Doesn't make any sense. CPH metro population 2.5m, Paris +11m.

With the future metro expansions, the Metro and S-train will have a respectable daily ridership of 750.000 to a million depending on M6/M7 and whether the S-train will get a Metro-like driverless rolling stock.

But consider this: The Waterloo station in London (largest by passenger output in the UK) had 94 million entries and exits in 2011/2012.

The Central Station in Copenhagen will, when the Circle Line is completed in 2019, have 88 million - surpassing Nørreport. By your logic, isn't it amazing that Copenhagen, a city many times smaller than London, has a station almost on par with Britain's largest? Makes you think, but not really.

There are two types of units in transports, unit and unit*km (or unit*mile), where unit can be passengers, tonnes, or vehicles. To compare capacity it is better to use the number of units, to compare traffic it is better to use units*km.

1 passenger*km (or pkm) is 1 passenger travelling for 1 km - so the number of passengers*km of a given network is the sum of the distances traveled by each passengers, which is a more indicative figure than the number of trips.

So 190 million passengers using Paris' line 4 for 5 km each are 950.000.000 passengers*km (or pkm), while 190 million passengers on Danish railway doing 100 km each are 19.000.000.000 pkm - that's 20 times more traffic.

However, Paris' line 4 is much shorter than the entire Danish network. So the most charged section between two stations in Paris might carry 100.000 passengers in a day, the more used section in Danemark might carry 20.000 passengers (all figures are realistic but invented, I don't know the real ones).

Usually urban railways have high passenger numbers but low passenger*km numbers, for intercity railways it is the inverse.

The S-train alone carries 130 million passenger each year so I'm thinking that maybe these 190 million passengers is only from regionaltog and Intercitytog.


Or else DSB only transports 60 million people on the other trains.

That could be true since my local DSB line between Roskilde Køge and Næstved only has around 1-1,5 million passengers each year.

Its a single line that are served by DSBs litra MR with 2 cars and they run on a 1/2 hourly schedule except for evenings and weekends where's its an hourly service.

There is a map of passenger numbers per line in this document (which in itself is quite interesting):
http://www.trafikstyrelsen.dk/DA/Pre...D6B2419A0.ashx

Look at page 50 for the map, numbers are in million passengers per year. The most used line, CPH - Roskilde has 65000+ daily passengers (or 80000+ if you also count S-train to Høje Taastrup), while the least used lines have around 500 daily passengers.

DSB secures new 10-year operating contract
Thursday, March 12, 2015



DENMARK's Ministry of Transport has agreed a new 10-year contract with Danish State Railways (DSB) to operate passenger train services on the national network until 2024

Under the agreement, the amount of annual subsidy DSB receives will fall from DKr 4.2bn ($US 599m) this year to DKr 3.9bn in 2024, while at the same time DSB will have to run 10% more services and provide 25% more seats in local and regional trains

New pictures of the flyunder just south of Ølsemagle in Køge Nord.

They will build 2 tunnel that will connect this flyunder with the Lille Syd Line.

First up is the tunnel under the S-train embankment that will happen in 2-3 weeks over the easter period.

I´m not sure about the ICE train though, the Lille Syd line will get electrification but from what I heard it will be Litra ER trainsets (the electric IC3 train) that will run between Næstved, Køge and Copenhagen 2 times every hour in 2018.






The next tunnel will be under the Køge Bugt motorway, currently it has 6 lanes (3 in each direction) but it will be expanded to 8 lanes.

This project is like the railway finished in 2018.

But they will use the port in Køge to transport the rails and other construction materials to the construction site by rail in 2016 so they will have to build the tunnel under the motorway here in 2015.

The plans is to run 10 trains between the port and the construction site at Køge Nord everyday when they are laying the tracks.

So they have started to build the tunnel under the S-train
















The flyunder that soon will be connected to the above tunnel is visible just a little bit north of the construction site.

They have finished the sheet piling at the S-train line one day ahead of schedule.


The next step is the build the tunnel and the recreate the embankment and tracks before April the 13th.

Since Banedanmark doesn´t show any interest in making any photo updates of the constructrion of the high speed line then you´ll have to deal with mine.


Here is the bridge that will carry the Roskildevej street over the railwayline.










Further north towards Copenhagen a new railwaybridge will carry the high speed line over Motorring 4 just south of Motorvejskryds Vallensbæk














The same place coming from north from the Motorvejskryds Albertslund.

Going further into Copenhagen.


On the first part until Motorring 3 the railway will be located south of the motorway (to the right in the picture)

After Motorring 3 the railway moves north of the Holbækmotorway (left in the picture) so a temporary motorway has been build so they can make the tunnel without disturbing the traffic.











In Hvidovre and Vigerslev the railway will be partly in tunnels and trenches, notice that all traffic has been moved to the inbound lanes.
