The construction sites south of the new Køge Nord station is in full swing.



First up is the new tunnel under the Køge Bugt line of the S-train system (Line E)

On the other side of the motorway the new high speed line will be located on a 10 meter high embankment.


The crane is constructing the bridge that will carry the railway over the relocated exit ramps on the motorway.

Here the railway will cross the Lille Syd line on a bridge.

Notice the tunnel construction site in the background.








The flyunder seen from the south.

Even though the Køge Nord station opens in 2018 the works is very advanced.


Access road is getting paved.








The Platform edges has been placed.











THe future S-train platform on the other side of the motorway.

The Flyunder seen from the north.













And finally a look towards the new tunnel.

So about this Koge North station - what is the concept? For what kind of passenger is it meant? From pictures above it's clear that there is no one living nearby so perhaps only for changing from long distance HS to local commuter trains?

Its mostly a interchange station between the S-train and long distance trains but you have Ølsemagle Lyng on the other side of the motorway and Køge municipality plans to build 800-1.000 homes and space for 6-7.000 jobs.

There will also be a park & Ride facility with 2.700 parking places.



Its in danish but then you can look at the pictures :-)

Track closures at Ringsted means exciting trains in Køge

First is a Litra ME diesel locomotive with double decker cars.












Next up was the ICE (ICE TD) to Hamburg, I was lucky and got the ICE in the "IC4" livery












And finally 2 IC3 trainsets coupled together, its the Eurocity connection from Hamburg to Copenhagen.

The eastern retaining wall at the flyunder is finished and the skeleton for the western retaining wall is now visible.





Notice the S-train in the background.

The outline of the new high speed line is very clear now.


Here from Solrød Byvej,


The "finished" section is towards the north.

Here from Åsvej in Jersie.


What you see is the bridge that will carry Roskildevej over the new railway.


Åsvej will cross under the railway but that project hasn´t started yet.









The railway bridge over the western exit ramps at exit 32 in Køge is still in its early stage but the location is visible because of the crane.





The flyunder looks massive.





The Køge Nord station.

The underpass under construction in these photos seems to be for a single track without electrification only. Is it wise?

The main line is on the new bridge over the single track line.

The single track line is the northern part of Lille Syd between Køge and Roskilde, its a rural line with half hourly departures during the day.


http://www.bane.dk/db/filarkiv/16513...031+200%29.pdf


From this this part of Lille Syd and down to Næstved the line will be upgraded from 120 km/h to 160 km/h and get electrification.

Its because the trains from Næstved will continue to Copenhagen instead of Roskilde, thats also the reason why they are building the flyunder (or is it a diveunder?)


The trains from Roskilde will instead continue to Rødvig and Fakse Ladeplads after stopping in Køge.



The bottleneck will be this line.

http://map.krak.dk/m/jLulC

Its a single track line with a single track station in the middle (Ølby station) but it will have 4 trains in every direction each hour.

North there will be 2 Roskilde trains and 2 Copenhagen trains and south there will be 2 trains for Næstved and 2 trains for Rødvig/Fakse Ladeplads.


In the early proposals there was double track all the way to where the lines split but now its only a kilometer or so north of Køge Station.



The virtual map explains a lot.

Maybe a wider underpass is not needed here, but never say never, SBB was happy to find a two track underpass here, 50 years or so after its construction and its use for a single track non electrified line (now double track and electrified).

I have seen plans for 4 trains per hour but that was with existing infrastructure.

But I don't see that happening now when the line between Lille Skensved/Køge Nord and Køge will be so crowded.

Its a short line but a very expensive one to expand.

The bridges over Lyngvej and Stensbjergvej has to be expanded, both roads has 4 lanes.

A tunnel under the also 4 lane Københavnsvej wil also have to be made.

Then there is 3 tunnels for pedestrians and cyclists.

And then finally a very complicated construction around Ølby station that is located on a embankment with a building located close to the current platform.
