Agreeing with what Chris and others have noted, I will add that it is a misunderstanding that the modal share of cars in central Copenhagen is less than 10%. In 2012 - according to the Municipality of Copenhagen, which constitutes Central Copenhagen - cars accounted for 41 % of all trips, bicycles for 33 % and public transport for 26 %. If you measure total transport (km driven) the car share is even larger (can't find it right now) as car trips generally are longer than especially bicycle trips.

A little roundtrip around Egedesvej and Ølsemaglevej

They are done with the 2 outer lanes in the northern direction and has started with the 2 inner lanes.


At the railway they are building the kabelrende (cable trench?)

My question was not any way offensive I simply would like to know ;-)
Before the motorway (Ringsted-)Køge-Copenhagen was built, there was a greater distribution of traffic to the west of Copenhagen ( long distance domestic traffic) as the main route to Jutland/Funen went through Roskilde-Ringsted to the ferries. Køge was just a town along the route from Copenhagen to southern Zealand and the ferries in Gedser/Rødby. Nowadays regardless of where you are heading from Copenhagen to the rest of Denmark there's this only motorway route to choose from (there are still ferries from Zealand to Jutland but not as frequent as there used to be, and you won't save much time in most cases either ). The old route Ringsted-Roskilde and Køge-Roskilde are still there but have not been upgraded in any significant way to be considered a viable alternative in most cases.


A remedy would be a motorway from Køge to Roskilde to divert some of this traffic (it would also be an impetus to invest more in Roskilde airport which was designed but not much used as a civilian airport). But then I guess some Jutish place has to be compensated for this in a similar way (most Danish investments are split in this way - A big investment on one side of the Great Belt has to mean there'll be a equally great investment on the other side).


Socio-economicaly the rich suburbs are to the north along the coast and 5-10kms in to land (not only the sea but there are some great lakes as well - Gentofte, Kongens Lyngby, Hørsholm etc). The southern Copenhagen area are generally poorer and have a lot more (polluting) industrial enterprises (Ishøj, Albertslund, Avedøre etc ). For this reason you can take the train Helsingborg-Elsinore in around 2hs and 180 kms instead of the ferry for 20 mins and 5 kms as the train connects many affluent suburbs to the north of Cph to the airport in the south and likewise many Scanian destinations to Cph and the airport.

This is another way to use the construction site at the Køge Bugt motorway


They transported the bridge section for the new Køge Nord station from the port to the construction site.

7 new service stations (on 4 locations) will soon be opened by Q8 and F24


5 of these will be unmanned F24 petrol stations and the last 2 on the Silkeborg motorway at Kalbygaard Skov N and S will be full service resting areas with Q8 petrol stations.

How much share have these companies at DK petrol market and what are the trends, are they newcomers, or just strong players?

Q8 - and their unmanned brand F24 - is one of the big players on the Danish market. The biggest player is Circle K (and their unmanned Ingo brand), Circle K was previously Statoil, but has also bought a substantial part of Shell branded filling stations. Shell used to be the biggest player with 20-25 % of the market, and Statoil around 18-20 % and then Q8/F24 with around 15 %. But with Circle K (former Statoil) including a large number of Shell stations, they are undoubtedly the biggest player with Q8 and Shell somehow smaller.

It is interesting to see how the market share varies a lot across countries. In Finland, the market share of benzin in 2016 were: ABC 30.7%, Neste 28.7%, SEO 2.7%, St1 22.7%, Teboil 15.9%, others 0.1%. The figures of diesel oil were 13.8, 38.1, 1.6, 18.6, 27.5, and 0.0 percent, respectively.

St1 has bought the business of Shell and Esso (and later sold part of the Esso to ABC). The brand name Esso is disappeared.

The Construction of two new ramps near Vemmedrup on E20 has started. It will be faster to get on E20 from my town, Ejby and Vemmedrup when the project is finished.

When looking at adjacent map from vejdirektoratet, it seems, that unmanned stations will be also along motorways. So far it is not that common to see that, at least not in my country. I mean for sure unmanned stations are trend.

How about electric cars, are plug-in stations becomming common now, capital Copenhagen might be surely first to catch this.

The motorway (E45 Østjyske Motorvej) between Aarhus S - Skandeborg S will become 2x3. The construction work will be finished at the end of '19.

Strategic analysis of Helsingør-Helsingborg tunnel

This morning the Danish Minister of Transport has announced that together with the Swedish Transport Authorities a strategic analysis of a Helsingør-Helsingborg fixed link (most likeky a tunnel) will be launched.
https://www.trm.dk/da/nyheder/2017/u...og-helsingborg

The strategic analysis will include as well a road connection only as a combined road-railway connection. The strategic analysis is expected to last 3 years.

A Ringway 5 motorway around Copenhagen is not part of the analysis, and will according to the minister not be a condition for a new fixed link.

I hope it becomes reality. It will shave another 40 kilometers off the route to Sweden (and Norway).

Combined with the Femern Bælt Tunnel, it would increase the 1000 km range for me from Halmstad to Uddevalla or way past Jönköping, even bringing Oslo and Stockholm within a day of driving if you're really going for it (and traffic in Germany cooperates...)

Rapid growth in motorway traffic

Vejdirektoratet has just published traffic counts for 1st quarter 2017, and it shows that motorway traffic in 1st quarter of 2017 has increased by 7,1 % compared to 1 st quarter 2016.

http://www.vejdirektoratet.dk/DA/om-...e-kvartal.aspx

Over a a 3 year period the average traffic (AADT) increase on motorways has been 5 % per year, and since 2010 motorway traffic has increased by 25 %.

A good example is E45 in East Jutland, with the Vejle Fjord Bridge as a major bottleneck, traffic has increased from an AADT of 64.129 in 2010 to an AADT of 82.482 in 2016 and year-to date 2017 of 87.420.

I believe it saves zero kilometers. For most people wanting to save kilometers, the current Helsinborg-Helsingör ferry connection is the favourite route. The typical waiting time is a few minutes only, and there is a possibility to take a coffee break with a sea view.

Not compared to route via the Øresund Bridge, which seemed quite obvious to me. Ferries suck, I avoid them when I can. What is a 'coffee break with a sea view' for some may be an unwanted stop for others.

The Helsingør - Helsingborg ferry cost is € 55 one way (plus coffee ), more expensive than the Øresund Bridge tolls + fuel and it doesn't save travel time either despite the shorter distance.
