Køge Nord from today.

Currently they are building something that in Danish are called a Kabelrende, directly translated its cable trench but I don´t think its the correct term






















The S-train platforms are hidding in the green.

The last 2 nights they have transported the 6 bridge sections for the pedestrian bridge at Køge Nord station from the local port to the construction site.

They had to transport 5 sections to the eastern side between the motorway and the S-train lines and 1 to the western side next to the long distance platforms.



I have posted them all here in the Køge Projects & Construction thread but I will give a little teaser :-)

These rounds of photos is fram the transport of the last 3 sections.

When will the new Copenhagen - Ringsted HSR be opened for passenger traffic? It says 2018 online, but in what month?

Time saving will be ca. 20 minutes for trains to Germany and western Denmark, correct?

Thanks

The new line opens in december 2018. But with reduced trafic the first 8 month, because of some bridge construction west of Ringsted station.
There will be no trains to western Denmark, on the new line, because of that.

The only service that will use the entire new line, is the express train from Nykøbing F / Hamburg to Copenhagen.
The new regional service between Copenhagen - Køge - Næstved, is postponed to 2020 because of some construction( new signals and eletrification) on the Lille syd line.
But they will start up with 2 trains/hour between Copenhagen and Køge Nord station the first 2 years.

I'm not sure about the time savings on the new railroad alone.
But with the upgrade of Sydbanen to 200 kph. Is the trip from Copenhagen to Nykøbing F, going down to 1:00 from 1:30.

And with the Germans building a new railroad line to Lübeck. Is the travel time from Copenhagen to Hamburg going down to 2:30 from 4:30. But only when the Fehmarn belt tunnel is completed in year 21 something. ;-)

Hey!

Last week I travelled to Denmark ant saw many IC4 trains. The fleet does seem to have a different color layout on the doors. Some trains had (if i remember correct) green/yellow and others red stripes at the doors.

Whats the reason for the different colors?

Thanks-!

That is a very good question, I will see if I can dig up some information.

Its actually a very simple answer.

To start with they where green but a design change has made them red.

They just haven't bothered to change the green ones yet.

I think the color stripes are the last concern for DSB, regarding the troubled IC4 trains

Sorry for the missing pictures but Photobucket is blackmailing me for 399 USD and I´m not paying that kind of money for some pictures


But here are some new pictures from my new flickr account (lets see how long it goes before they want more money)


Here we are at Ølbyvej looking west










And east/northeast

So I have been trying to find how much this line will reduce travel times. Especially interested for trains to and from Hamburg. As I understand those will be the only ones using the whole line.

For reference, travel time today is 4:45. Main factor that slows down trains is of course the ferry between Rødby and Puttgarden and the sorry state of railways in Schleswig-Holstein. But if the project manages to slash 10-15 minutes of the travel time it's still an improvement (15 of 270 minutes is 5 % reduction in travel time!).

Travel time will be highly reduced.

If we split it up in stages it will look like this.

Copenhagen to Ringsted up from around 180 km/h (and lower through the stations) to 250 on the new line.

Ringsted to Vordingborg is up from 160 to 200 km/h.

New Storstrøm bridge is build for 200 km/h, the current one is around 80 km/h.

The rest of the line from the bridge to the tunnel is being double tracked and upgraded from 120 to 200 km/h.

The tunnel itself i believe will be 200 km/h but I have seen 230/250 mentioned.

The part from the tunnel to the Fehmarnsund bridge I'm unsure off.

From Fehmarnsund to Lübeck it will be upgraded from around 100/120 to 160 km/h by a new constructed railway.

The part from Lübeck to Hamburg is today 160 km/h and and that will not change but they will build a 3rd track up to Bad Oldesloe (spelling).

I have head travel times from between 2:30 and 3 hours.

I think it will be 200 km/h on the new line, initially. By the way, does anyone know how many kilometers the new/old lines between Copenhagen and Ringsted are, so that we can compare? When I still lived in Denmark (many years ago!) we used to say that CPH-Koege-Ringsted was broadly the same distance as CPH-Roskilde-Ringsted.

Hmmm? I also saw 230/250 mentioned when the Swiss started boring their - impressive! - new Gotthardt Tunnel. The problem is, as far as I've understood, that this is only really feasible if the high-speed train is alone in the tunnel. If for instance there's a slower train in front of the fast train (even at a safe distance) the fast train has to slow down because the air pressure within the tunnel becomes excessive.

Yes, "best travel times" around 2 1/2 have been bandied around, but let's see what they can actually deliver. At any rate, this is a time saving of around 2 hours on the CPH-Hamburg line. It must be said that about half of the improvement comes from not having to languish on a ferry or having to wait in the port for a new engine car, but still.... great progress!

63.9 kms with the current rail/Vestbanen.


The new HSR to CPH is strictly 60 kms from Ringsted to Ny Ellebjerg in Cph. From there to Hovedbanegården it's a bit shorter than 4 kms. It wins over the current route with a few 100 meters at most.

Thus in length it broadly stays the same.

The Fehmarnsund bridge will need to be replaced as well, so I think there will be an speed upgade as well. Time plan is to be finished 2028.

IIRC the parts of the line between Fehmarnsund bridge and Lübeck that are to be built completely new along the Autobahn are even planned for 200 km/h.

Between Hamburg(-Hasselbrrok) and Ahrensburg two new tracks will be built for the S-Bahn. Between Ahrensburg and Ahrensburg-Gartenholz one new track will be built for the S-Bahn. Between Ahrensburg-Gartenholz and Bad Oldesloe no new track will be built. Investigations have shown that this infrastructure is sufficient as the S-Bahn will ride every 10 minutes only until Ahrensburg during peak periods (to Bargteheide every 20 minutes, to Bad Oldesloe which is also served by the faster RE (regional express) every 60 minutes).

However, there will be no speed upgrades due to the new tracks.

Well, when the tunnel is finished I've also heard of new times "under three hours". But mostly interested if we can see some improvements in the next couple of years. Both when Copenhagen-Ringsted line finished in late 2018 and with speed improvements on Ringsted-Femern line that should be finished in 2021.
