In my view, yes, it might. By the traditional logics of Danish consensus politics a scale-back is more likely than a cancellation. The train fund agreement was broadly negotiated, precisely with the purpose of making any subsequent government obliged to carry it out. But the new government may wriggle out of parts of the undertaking by arguing that the lack of revenue creates another situation than the one on the basis of which the deal was struck. Its support party, which is essentially a protest party wanting to weaken central government and empower "real folks in local areas", will happily support action against a project that it considers elite-driven and designed to serve the citizens of the nation's 3-4 largest towns.

But let's cool it: this government has a very weak parliamentary base and it is not expected to last for more than a year or two. The climate for long-term investment may look very different a couple of years from now. In the meantime the significant upgades of the railways in the eastern parts of the country continue apace.

Some small updates from around Køge.

Bellingestien will be relocated to the west and a bridge for the railway is about to get constructed.

















Its here.

The railway bridge that will spand over the relocated western exit ramps on exit 32 looks more finished.

Another tunnel under the railway, this one will be for access to a water reservoir between the railway and the motorway.

Its visible behind the excavator






The railway embankment is clearly visible now.

Great updates as always!

Can you remind us - which if any of the major projects (new lines, electrification, major station rebuilding) currently underway are expected to be finished in 2015 or 2016?

I can try.


2015:
Double track between Vamdrup and Vojens and speed upgrade to 160 km/h (from 120???) on the whole line between Padborg and Taulov.

New station at Langeskov between Odense and Nyborg on the island of Funen.

At Nørreport station a new transfertunnel will open from street level and under the long distance platform that will connect to the metro transfer tunnel.

New Signaling system on the S-train line between Gentofte and Hillerød and some minor track repairs in order to increase the speed.



2016:
New signaling system on the Lille Syd Line between Roskilde - Køge and Næstved.
Speed upgrade to 160 km/h (from 120 km/h) and electrification between Køge Nord and Næstved should be done in 2018.

Electrification between Lunderskov and Esbjerg, the wires are prepared for 200 km/h but I think that the railway is still only 180 km/h.


New signaling system between Langå and Frederikshavn and removal of all railway crossings between Hobro and Aalborg

Also here the top speed will be upgraded from 120 km/h to 200 km/h (Hobro-Aalborg) but that is first in 2018.

New signaling system between Gentofte and Svanemøllen/Ryparken and Hellerup and Klampenborg on the S-train line.


I think thats it for now

I was out on my bike and taking some pictures of the high speed rail construction.



Here at Egedesvej looking north










Here at Åsvej they are constructing a bridge for the railway that will cross over Åsvej here.

In the background the bridge that will carry Roskildevej over the railway looks more and more completed, it will open on next Monday.














Solrød Byvej, first looking north.




Then south.

Then we are in Solrød Strand near motorway exit 30.

Here a huge embankment id being constructed and 2 bridges are going to be build close to each other on the intersection between Tåstrupvej, Cementvej and Silovej.



















And know to my biggest disappointment in a long time.


I thought the first floor on Mcdonalds would be the best place to make some photo´s but it turns out that the windows has some glacing to protect from the sun but it isn´t the best for taking photos through.

But I´ll post them anyway.

Here are some railway construction pictures from around Køge taken from a huuuuge Mercedes truck.


First up is the bridge over the future relocated ramps at exit 32.

Sorry for the blurry pictures.







A sneak peak to the S-train platforms at Køge Nord station.

The Lille Syd line (Roskilde - Køge - Næstved) is closed for the next 2 months.

They have lots and lots to do.


11 bridges will be replaced
2 bridges will be closed permanently
3 places the tracks will be lowered under existing bridges.
6 bridges will just be renovated
The tracks will be moved sideways over a stretch of 6,8 kilometers
11,2 kilometers of sporløft, track lift or whatever that is.
Miscellaneous trackworks on 1,2 kilometers of track.

And finally Køge Kyst will do some sheet piling for their road tunnel north of Køge station.


But here is an update of one of does miscellaneous trackworks.

A turnout is build some 1,5 kilometers north of Ølby station so its possible to go from the Lille Syd Line to the new high speed line and and the other way round.

The latest aerials from Køge Bugt Motorvejen, as usual with lots of railway construction.


Cementvej/Tåstrupvej in Solrød.




Egedesvej





Karlslunde Mosevej, if you look around the car you can see what is about to be a railway bridge.






Karlslunde service station, the weird looking construction site in the middle of the picture.






Mosede Landevej





On the northern part looking south.






Exit 31A Solrød S and the railway crossing under Roskildevej.

Kildestien north of Mosede Landevej.






Back at Tåstrupvej.





Skensved Å, the railway bridge over the stream is the white square in the left side of the picture.





Ølsemaglevej




Køge Nord station just north of the dismantled Ølsemaglevej bridge.







Finally an older picture from June showing the crossing of Lille Syd line and the future connecting line to the high speed line.

Why will they be moved sideways?

The top speed has to raised to 160 km/h so I'm guessing that they are adjusting the tracks for a more smother ride.

Maybe I'm translated it wrong but its not one stretch of 6,8 kilometers, its divided onto all 45 kilometers of construction.

So out of the 45 km of the project lengths the tracks will be moved sideways in some parts for a total of 6.8 km length?
Will it be to straighten out curves and such?

side note: in that last pic, all those flat roofs... solar panels ftw!

Yes I think that is correct.

But the line is very straight so there is not that much curves to straighten out.


Most of the work is about the electrification programme and ERTMS-2 installation.
