The "new" government consists of a small minority government which is dependent on the support of other conservative/liberal/right wing parties, one of which was part in the "Togfonden" agreement. Ironically, many of the projects which they want to drop, affect their political base in the more lightly populated areas of the country

The final result will depend on to which extent this party will break the deal in exchange for some immigrant restrictions, or just postpone some of the projects.

The government would prefer to use any surplus money on tax cuts and road improvements. You have all heard this story before, in other countries.

Yes, but there may be a bit more to it than that. The governing party (the liberal-conservative Venstre) has had trouble with several of its mayors because some smaller provincial towns are slated to be bypassed by the new, faster connection between the four largest cities. In this sense too they might be slightly relieved to see the issue just go away.

May aerials from Banedanmark of the Copenhagen-Ringsted high speed line.


They have started to to put the roof on the Hvidovretunnelen, the job should be finished in August.




And a little bit further south at Karlslunde Resteplads the bridge over Karlstrup Møllebæk, also this work should be done in August.






Køge Nord station.




















The Ølsemagle bridge will open tomorrow at 14:00, expect some pictures from me no later than Wednesday.






The Ejbyvej bridge opened for traffic back in May 23rd.





Adamshøjvej broen near Ringsted before it was demolished.

As promised I visited the new Ølsemagle bridge this evening.


One thing I noticed is that the tracks to and from the Lille Syd line goes into a very sharp curve, especially the track to Lille Syd.

June aerials from the Copenhagen Ringsted high speed line.


Preperation for the flyover near Ny Ellebjerg is in full swing.





The part through the Vestvolden Fortress and the M3 motorway, here we are looking west out of Copenhagen.




The M4 bridge, now looking east towards Copenhagen.




The bridge over Taastrupvej in Solrød, this picture is already obsolete as the bridge has been casted this weekend so the skeleton should be on way down.




Køge Nord as always.




Exit 32 at Køge with the 2 railway bridges that are finished.

The new exit ramps on the western side are almost done, its only the part under the northern bridge that are missing.

The huge bridge over the motorway should be done in august.




The Kongsted tunnel.

Isn't that bridge going to go from Sjælland to Falster via Masnedø? A 4 km bridge from Sjælland to Masnedø doesn't make sense to me.

Maybe its takes a loop or 2

No its off course from Madsnedø to Falster, a much smaller bridge will connect Sjælland/Zealand with Madsnedø

For some reason I have been at the service station at Karlslunde to follow the construction of the high speed railway there.

AS you have seen the railway goes along the motorway on almost the entire route and here its passing by the western service station very close to it.

The reconstruction of Køge station has begun and will finish in late 2017.

The other work is renovation of the tracks, catenary poles and some bridges on the Køge Bugt banen on the Copenhagen S-train system.
