I will try to explain it

The tracks are back in service for now.


The works that has been done now are only replacement of bridges and new tracks and sleepers.


For the ERTMS-2 they plan to go online in the second half of 2017, first Roskilde-Køge and finally Køge-Næstved.


Electrification should be done by December 2018 when the Copenhagen-Køge Nord- Ringsted high speed rail line opens.



They haven´t announced any track closures yet but they have talked about using the track closures to both installing the ERTMS-2 and putting up the mast, catenarys and wires.

Fun fact:



The blue signs with the yellow arrows on them are ETCS Stop Marker Boards, they indicate the end of one ETCS block and the start of the next. They look similar to the Block Marker Boards that the French invented for their TVM signalling system.

Well Alstom is building the ERTMS-2 system east of Lillebælt (Funen, Zealand etc.) so it's not a coincidence.

A flyover of what the area around Køge Nord will look like in the future.


It will give a better idea of what it is I´m taking photo´s of.

Interesting that they created a new sign, that is similar, but not identical. SBB for example just copied the French sign, and so did AFAIK NMBS.

Yes, and the Dutch did the same for their ETCS equipped lines.

I guess someone found the use of the same sign confusing.

While we are talking about the Lille Syd line then I can post a video with the current litra MR trains and the future Litra MQ (Siemens Desiro).

The video is recorded at tracks 6 and 7 at Roskilde station, the old MR is on track 6 (left) and MQ is on track 7.






Other trains in the video are IC4 (litra MG), then a litra MY and MZ diesel locomotives coupled together.

Then we have 4 IC3 trainsets coupled together, litra MF just to make that clear.

And then finally at least 2 IR4 (litra ER) train sets coupled together.

I guess so too. Because I recently found this:

http://bahn-seminar.info/Signale/Ne-14-ETCS-Halt-Tafel/

In Switzerland actually both the Triangle and the Arrow signs are actually used. I think the intention here is that the Arrow will be the standard, that will eventually be used on all ETCS lines.

In one years time this video will be a blast from the past because in one years time this line will be the first done in the electrification programme.

15 IR4 trainsets will be rebuild for Intercity service so all Intercity trains from Copenhagen to Sønderborg and Esbjerg will be EMU´s.

More progress along the railroad construction on the inner part of the Copenhagen - Ringsted high speed line.

The socalled lufthavnsrampen (Airport ramp) that connects the Holbæk motorway to the Motorring 3 in the southbound direction has been relocated and raised 4 meters so the railroad can fit under.

It opened on the 5th of November














The other bridges and tunnels in this project is also very advanced.


The tunnel under Motorring 3 is halfway through the sheet pilling as the southbound lanes is ready for traffic again, now its time to close the northbound lanes until february.

The traffic will then be guided over to the western side of the motorway until they are finished in february.


The bridge over Brøndbyvester Boulevard is finished next summer, besides the bridge they will also lower the road.

How long do you think it will take till all the major engineering works (not counting railway infrastructure) are finished? Another year perhaps?

I will guess around next summer/fall, the track laying and electrical installation will already start next year so I'm thinking that the bridge/tunnels etc will be done by then.

Construction work around Cementvej/Tåstrupvej in Solrød Strand on the high speed line.


Its the new railwaybridge over Cementvej that is so advanced that the relocated road is opened, the roundabout at Cementvej and Tåstrupvej is also done.

Up to 0,5 meters of snow on Zealand disrupted traintraffic in and out of Copenhagen as threes felt down on the power lines etc etc.

50cm is quite a lot of snow. Even if it had fallen up here we'd be kinda amazed about it. 50cm from a single storm, let alone in November? woah.

It was crazy, a friend of mine who got home from Egypt Saturday evening used over 3 hours from the airport but it should normally be done in 1 hours or so.

They have begun to lay ballast on the Copenhagen-Ringsted high speed line.


First we are between Tåstrupvej and Solrød Byvej.
