A Siemens Taurus locomotive have set a new speed record on rail in Denmark.

The top speed was 235,8 km/h and was achieved on Vestbroen on Storebælt.

What is the purpose (is it still in use?) of the track that runs from Østerport until somewhere near Bisperbjerg station, passing underneath the S-train and Kystbane tracks after Nordhavn?

In old times there was a freight yard near Bispebjerg but now its mostly the traditional steam train trip called rundt om husene (Around the houses).


From around 4:30 in this video.





Or around 0:50 in this video.

The railway bridge on the Copenhagen-Ringsted high speed line over Bellingestien near Campus Køge is done, now only the pavement needs to be done.

Wow, as is it looks like the very definition of beet root station...

How about the electrification work to Esbjerg? Is the date for the start of electric service already known?

How many beet root stations (whatever that is) has a catchment area of 5,663 people (as per 1. January 2016) and 1.100 new homes and 5-6.000 planned working places planned next to it.

There is also 2.800 park and ride parking spots planned and the first 800 will be ready when the station opens in 2018.


Lunderskov-Esbjerg opens by the end of 2016, other sources says second half of 2016.

I only wrote it because from that areal picture I see no access to it and very little housing or commercial development within walking distance. Perhaps it will be a completely different picture in 2018...

Maybe this help :-)

Directly to the north there is a huge marsh area called Jersie Mose so that area will never be build and in the other area Rishøj Idrætscenter is also visible with alot of green area for football pitches.


About access, there will be a bicycle/pedestrian access from Scandinaviskk Transportcenter/Campus Køge and one from Ølsemagle Lyng.

A huge 200 meter pedestrian bridge will spand the S-train platforms, the motorway and the 2 long distance platforms, it will also connect to Ølsemagle Lyng in the eastern end and Ølsemagle and Køge Nord in the western end.

There will be road access from Ølsemagle via the Nordstjernen road and Lille Skensved, the motorway and Ølsemalgle Lyng from Egedesvej.

April aerials from the high speed line.


The Kulbanetunnel




Brøndbyøstervej bridge and the tunnel under Holbækmotorvejen.






The route through Vestvolden.






The M4 bridge






The Cementvej and Tåstrupvej bridges in Solrød.






Exit 32 in Køge with the new exit ramps and new Lyngvej bridge under construction.






The railway crosses the Vestmotorvejen somewhere east of Ringsted and Kværkeby.






Here the railroad meets up with the old mainline a few kilometers east of Ringsted.

The first railway sleepers has arrived at Køge Nord station.










On the eastern side of the station where the S-train platforms are located it looks like this.




















Not much has happened from February but you get the April aerials anyway, well the sleepers seems to have arrived after the photo was taken.

2 things we are proud of in Denmark Tuborg (and for some Carlsberg) and the Royal family.







And some action around Køge with Regionstog Coradia Lint, DSB Litra MR, DSB S-train Litra SE (3rd generation) and historical train from ØSJK (Østsjællands Jernbaneklub)

Further south at Jersie the railroad crosses over Åsvej and under Roskildevej.



Just west of the motorway exit 31A the railroad crosses under Roskildevej.











And finally the bridge over Åsvej just a few 100 meters north of Roskildevej.

New updates on the Copenhagen - Ringsted high speed line.

At the new railway bridge over Åsvej in Jersie they have started to build the access road, that means that the road is narrowed to one lane atm.














A few kilometers further south they are working on the finishing touches to the Ølsemaglevej bridge.

There is lots on concrete work around exit 32 at the moment.

The big bridge over the motorway was cast last week and it looked like they where doing that at the railway bridge over Lyngvej today.

The last bridge over the western on and off ramps on the motorway just looks like it need to have the scaffolding removed.























The pedestrian tunnel under the old part of Lyngvej is now demolished.

Danish investment plans to be chopped back
19 May 2016



DENMARK: The new government is expected to stop work on many of the railway upgrading projects approved by the former coalition government in 2014, according to local news reports. National broadcaster DR has obtained a briefing note from the finance ministry which casts doubt over the government’s ability to fund the DKr28·5bn programme.

The Togfonden DK package announced in March 2013 by the then Transport Minister Henrik Dam Kristensen was aimed at cutting journey times between the country’s principal cities to 1 h and enhancing capacity across the network to support economic development. Making rail more competitive with road and electrifying much of the Banedanmark network would improve environmental sustainability, while creating up to 20 000 jobs. However, the package was to be funded through North Sea oil revenues and the recent fall in oil prices has reduced the amount of funding available
