Funding for part 1 of the timeplanen project is now secured after, Dansk Folkeparti, Socialdemokraterne, Radikale Venstre and others made a deal without the governing parties Venstre, Konservative and Liberal Alliance.

Part 1 costs 15 billion danish kroner and for that you get.

A 35 kilometer line between Odense and Middelfart on western Funen that costs 4,5 billion.

Electrification of the line between Roskilde and Kalundborg and Fredericia and Aalborg.

Speed upgrades between Fredericia and Hobro, they will get rid of sharp curves etc etc
What the top speed will be is not known yet but I´m guessing they will just remove speed restrictions.

Hobro Aalborg is speed upgraded to 200 km/h

Long distance platforms at Ny Ellebjerg so passengers trains to and from Copenhagen Airport can stop at this soon to be huge intersection.
Currently its the terminus for S-train line F, Line A and E stops here as well.
It will be a stop on the Copenhagen Ringsted High Speed line and terminus for Metro line M4 when it opens in 2023.

Then some boring stuff like internet on the trains and projects to increase freight traffic in northern jutland.

This investment frame is from 2018 to 2025 so I imagine that all the projects will be build in this timeframe.

Btw they have chosen the northern alignment and that's the reason why its 500 million more expensive.

The advantage is this alignment is that its avoid the more populated areas south of the Fynsmotorvejen motorway.

But they have to relocate a gas pipe that runs along the motorway.

The 2018 to 2025 seems somewhat unlikely to me.

Why?

Because the new line Copenhagen - Køge - Ringsted has been debated and discussed since the late 1980's, while some for example the DSB wanted a 5th between Høje Taastrup and Roskilde instead, until it was finally decided to build the new line.

Knowing Danish politicians and their eager to get things done, at least when it comes to public transportation, I can not shake the feeling that it will be sometime between 2030 and 2035 before any of those projects will be build or completed.

The difference is that the railway over Funen has been through the systems with VVM studies and town hall meetings etc for around 3 years now so its far beyond just talking about it.

But as I also said, there hasn´t been anything concrete announced (like what speed upgrades we see between Fredericia and Hobro) so until we see something announced its just my guess.


BTW DSB wanted a 5th track between Hvidovre Fjern and Høje Taastrup (2 for S-train and 3 for long distance trains), Høje Taastrup Roskilde already has 4 tracks for long distance trains as the S-train only goes as far as Høje Taastrup.

Woop woop finally the high speed line start to looks like something.


The pictures are taken from the Kongsted Nord Service station east of Ringsted on E20 Vestmotorvejen.

I don´t have pictures of the rest of the works but the poles has reached Salbyvej west of Køge but only on the inbound tracks.

There was poles on both track as far as Ejbyvej (as I recall)

Only one train per hour will run on the new line.

Only one train per hour will run on the new railway between Copenhagen and Ringsted.

The capacity can not be fully utilized due to signal problems.


When the new high speed railway between Copenhagen and Ringsted opens in December next year, there will be a maximum of one train per hour on the line,
writes the technical magazine Ingeniøren.
The reason is trouble installing a new signal system in the trains, says Jan Schneider-Tilli, Project Director in Banedanmark.


The railway between Copenhagen and Ringsted is a public prestige project of around 1.2 billion EUR.
It will relieve traffic on the line between Høje Taastrup and Valby, which has been a big bottleneck for a long time.

What will be the maximum speed for the line? At 17 million Euro per km it does not look like high speed.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but like the Køge-Ringsted line it will probably be made for 250 kph, with the track layout prepared for higher speeds.

The mysterious buyer of the three IC2 trains is Astra Transcarpatic from Romania. One of the trains was already painted:

Sounds like they're implementing temporary block working until the signalling issues are resolved?

The signaling on the tracks seems ready / on time - it's the train conversions that are behind - apparently IC3/IR4 are hard to convert to convert and the project is FAR behind schedule meaning that there will not be enough trains ready to ride on the line. So for a while there would not be enough trains to fill the capacity -- and they would roll out gradually.

The alternative - temporarily adding the old signaling to the tracks is an option, but would also not be ready for the opening late next year.

They just moved the project director from the line itself (which is on time and on budget) to the signaling project (replacing signaling on all trains and all lines in DK) to get that project in shape .. we will see.

The first big lift at Køge Nord station was today.
This piece has a lengh on 40 meters, and a weight on 160 tons.
5 more sections are waiting to be put in place, before the end of the year.
