At the moment there are no platforms on the track to and from the airport.

The current platform will be for trains coming to and from the new high speed line and to and from the central station.
This will happen when a new flyover is build west of the station.

http://www.bane.dk/visBanearbejde.asp?artikelID=20356

But it is planned to relieve the central station by directing trains to the airport instead.

But to do this they both have to build platforms at Ny Ellebjerg on the airport line and expand the airport station with another set of platforms to the north of the current station.

This will make the current track 1 and 2 for Sweden bound train and the new track 3 and 4 will be for Copenhagen and Roskilde (via Ny Ellebjerg) bound trains.

Thanks a lot. I must say I was quite impressed with the Danish railway system. Let's hope they have more luck with their next rolling stock procurement.

These pictures is taken from a bus so not ideal for taking photos but you get the idea.

The tunnel that will lead the tracks from the new high speed line to Lille Syd is finished, now they are building the tunnel under the motorway.








This picture is taken from the new Roskildevej bridge over the new high speed line, here we are looking north towards the bridge under construction at Åsvej




Roskildevej curves to the right so its possible to shoot the bridge at Åsvej from another angle.





The butt ugly station building at Køge station build in the 80´ies is about to get demolished to make way for new homes and shops at the Strædet project in Køge.

New station facilities will be build together with a new bridge spanning the platforms.

The bike rack is about to get removed, the new bike racks will for limited time be located near track 5, a new underground facility will be build using the current transfer tunnel that are going to be replaced by the before mentioned bridge.

Railway construction north of Køge.


Sheet piling for both the expanded tunnel for the Lille Syd line and the new railroad.





And from the other side.

Denmark completes track-doubling project
Wednesday, September 09, 2015



DENMARK marked the completion of a key capacity enhancement project in Jutland on September 7, when transport minister Mr Hans Christian Schmidt officially reopened the Vamdrup - Vojens section of the Fredericia - Padborg line following the completion of a DKr 675m ($US 101m) upgrade

The project involved constructing a second track on the 20km stretch and upgrading the line, for 160km/h operation. Construction began in March 2014 and the completion of the project means the entire Fredericia - Tinglev line is now double track.

The line is an important freight route for traffic between Germany and Sweden, and is also used by international passenger trains from Hamburg to Copenhagen and Aarhus

Finally Banedanmark has done some aerials of the Copenhagen Ringsted high speed line, the others has been from the next door motorway expansion.


Retortvej very close to central Copenhagen.




The railwaybridge over M4.









Near Greve.





Roskildevej






Køge Nord station, both the S-train platforms and long distance platforms are visible.




The new high speed line runs parallel to the old line the last 6 kilometers to Ringsted.

The project to upgrade the great belt fixed link to 200 km/h is very cheaper than expected.


The tunnel openings was originally planned to be rebuild but computer simulations has shown that its not necessary.


So its mainly going to be the replacement of wooden sleepers with ones of concrete that is going to cost but its going to be financed by the maintenance budget.

Another huge post is the signaling and radio communication but these are payed by the signaling programme and new nationwide GSM-R radio system.



Status is that there will be a series of clusures in each tunnel because of maintenance of the tracks in the tunnels in the start of this year, in the same time Sund og Bælt will change the wooden sleepers.


The plan is to run some test trains with 230 Km/H in April or May but since Denmark doesn´t have any trains going at that speed I expect that they will hire a German ICE/ICE-T or Swedish X2 train to do the tests.

Good to hear that Denmark has reopened its road and rail links to Germany a day after they were closed to stop migrants from travelling to Sweden.

Why did the Swiss Crocodile head for Sweden?

Was it because it wanted to hear a SAAB story?

(I'm seriously asking, though)

Because of the jubilee 100 years of electrical trains in Sweden at the swedish railway museum in Gävle.

At first the loco was supposed to be shipped from continental europe via Swinoujscie, Poland, but for some reason they decided to pull it through Denmark, which may have made a few danish trainspotters happy.

More high speed rail construction around Køge.

The casting has been removed on the flyunder






The railway line isn´t as dominant in the landscape as I thought it would be.








Here we are at Ølbyvej.

First we are looking northeast towards exit 32 on the Køge Bugt motorway.




The bridge looks rather small, it doesn´t look like it will fit 2 tracks but I´m sure they know what they are doing.

The new railway line isn´t the first railway line between Køge and Ringsted.


The 33,2 kilometers long line was active from 1917 to 1963 but there are still traces to be seen.


While I was out on my bike I decided to take some photo´s of the old railway line.

The 60 kilometer Copenhagen Ringsted high speed line is cheaper than expected.

Most of the money most likely comes from the budget reserve (the article doesn´t specify that) but a 178 million kroner tunnel was counted twice in the budget. !!!!


The Original budget was 11,5 billion kroner but the estimated price is now 8,2 billion.

Wow! How on earth did that happen? Even if you add the "extra" bridge to the estimated cost you'd arrive only at 8.4 billion. There's quite some way up to 11.5 billion that was originally budgeted. Of course in some countries (Switzerland are world champions, as far as I know) the public hate negative surprises to such a degree that every estimate is padded to ensure against cost overruns. But.... 3.1 billion kroner??? Something strange is going on here.

As far as I know the budget reserve is 30% of the estimated construction price.

Without the 30% reserve the budget would have ended up at 8,05 billions so in reality its 195 millions over the estimated price.
