Now, we are looking forward to see construction of Femern-Bridge (2018) connection between Germany and Denmark.

A lot of stuff going on at the motorways in Denmark

Holbækmotorvejen is getting expanded from 4 to 6(8) lanes around Roskilde. At the same time, most older motorways are getting refurbished.

I drove the E45 last week from north to south, and it has already been almost entirely refurbished.

A stretch between Bjæverskov(or even more west) and Køge-interchange got brand new asphalt.

Speed limits in DK

It may have been posted here before, but I thought this was an informative map, providing speed limit information for the Danish motorway network.

There are slightly too many 110 km/h sections in Denmark in my opinion. For example the southern end of E47 on Lolland, and most Kolding-area Motorveje. The København area motorways seem okay, although Primary Route 21 could do with 130 km/h west of Roskilde.

There is no hard shoulder on the southern end of E47 if I remember correctly, I guess that's the reason for the 110-zone.

It´s still would be better with different speedlimits in the Copenhagen area too. 110 Km/h is too slow in the late evening/night time with 3 lanes.

I took the expressway from Kalundborg and 100 wouldn´t be a big problem either istead of 90Km/h.

Max speed on expressways is 90 if signed. Otherwise it's 80.

The problem in Denmark is, that speed limits are set after some standardized rules, instead of adapting the speed limit to the actual conditions.

I have no idea why we need a Fehmarn Belt bridge. It's gonna be more expensive to cross it than taking the ferry.

It is supposed to improve the economy and transportation conditions on the road from Malmö to Germany.

The danish government also thought that Malmö and Copenhagen would become one big united city, which it yet has to become.

You are talking against facts. The growth in the combined region Copenhagen-Malmö has been amazing over the past decade. Commuting across Øresund was virtually none existing 10 years ago (around 1000 daily commuters), and now 20.000 people are commuting daily accross Øresund.

You might not feel the change in Northern Jutland, but people in Copenhagen and Malmö and not least business and has certainlu felt it, and in many ways the region has grown together.

Whether Fehmarn will be the same success is to be seen, but since it is stipulated that the project will be self-financing, including railways and roads on shore (like Great Belt/Storebælt and Øresund) it at least is not a problem for the rest of the country, including Northern Jutland.

What i'm saying is, that the politicians in their own imaginary world thought that a bridge that it costs several hundred crowns to cross, would make CPH and Malmö become one city. They forget to remember that the Øresund is still there.

Commuters only pay something like € 5 in tolls to cross the Øresund Bridge.

Årsabonnement 240,00
Pris per enkelttur per kalendermåned DKK inkl moms
Normal / Weekend
1-16 : 142,00 / 115,00
17-50 : 29,00 / 25,00
51- : 142,00 / 115,00
Tillæg for anhænger/campingvogn og autocamper over 6 meter 142,00 / 115,00
Which mean that for yearly fee of 240DKK you pay 142DKK for first 16 crossings in month and then you pay only 29 Kroner for further crossings up to 50th one.
So, if you live in Malmö and commute to CPH only on workdays, you are doing about 2x22 crossing per month which cost you (16 * 142) + (28 * 29) = 3084DKK/month + 20DKK of yearly fee. That's about 415€. Definitely not cheap, but not unbearably-expensive. And remember that nothing in Denmark is cheap


Moreover, aren't the Øresund- and Storebaelt bridge tolls tax-deductable in case when you use them for daily commuting?

If the tolls are too expensive, there is always the train

You're right it is tax deductable, at least in Denmark. And anyhow since so many have chosen to commute across Øresund it is not prohibitively expensive for commuters.

Copenhagen and Malmö will never be one city in the classical way - and nobody has predicted that, but the region has become more and more one functional city-region instead of two very separated cities. And that is without doubt benefiting the whole region.

Yesterday, the Danish goverment presented a new plan, called "Denmark in better balance", which included two major upcomming road projects.

The first will be an extension of the A18 motorway from Herning to Holstebro, details so far not known.

And the other will be a new or upgrated road from Esbjerg to Tønder at the Danish/German border. This A11 could be a new motorway, according to the plan. The costs for the pre-studys will be 10 mio dkr, and will take approx one year.

Do you have a link with more detailed information about this?

By the way, on August 27th, the last section of the Djurslandmotorvejen (PR15) opened north of Århus.
