They seem to focus mainly on bridge maintenance these days. København was full of short bridge road works.

You are right in that observation. The initial 2 years with extra funding focused mainly on pavement rehabilitation, whereas main focus now and the next cuple of years will be on bridge maintenance. However substantial parts of the network has received pavement rehabilitation and maintenance also in 2011 and the same will happen in 2012, according to Vejdirektoratet press releases.

Too bad for you, the majority of motorways got new asphalt during the summer, right after you did your roadtrip

Very interesting. All three variants seem solid to me.

Sekundærrute 501 - Århus

Secondary Route 501 is one of only two secondary routes which have motorway status. It serves as a southern entrance to the city of Århus. It has a quite nice descent into the city. It's only 9 kilometers long and opened to traffic in 1977.

Another example of a motorway that was in need of pavement maintenance. Since those pictures were taken (in the spring i guess) the road has received a new asphalt layer.

BTW. on the last 2 pictures a road work can be seen in the distance. That is the first phase of the socalled Marselis tunnel that will continue the motorway all the way to the port of Aarhus (Århus is the old spelling that was changed 01.01.2011). Until now the motorway ends at a signal controlled level crossing with the Ring 2. In the first phase a new underpass will be constructed under the Ring 2, and the motorway will continue as a non-motorway 2+2 road for about 2 km. In the second phase a new approx. 2 km tunnel underneath Marsel Boulevard.

PR 15 - Silkeborg Motorway

The Primærrute 15, or Primary Route 15, is the principal east-west motorway across central Jutland. It connects Aarhus with Herning, but is still broken into two sections until the Silkeborg bypass will be completed. Here are photos I took in April 2011.

Primærrute 18 - Midtjyske Motorway

The Primærrute 18 (Primary Route 18) will form a motorway across central Jutland (Jylland), connecting Herning with Vejle and the national motorway network. Some sections already opened around 2006, 2007 and 2008, more is underway.

These photos cover the southern segment near Give. It's partially already a 2x2 motorway, further east it's a half-profile motorway with two-way traffic.

Just curious, how much will infrastructure policy change in Denmark with the new government? As centre-left governments tend to favor public transport, is there a risk that motorway projects will be stopped? How about the congestion charge in Copenhagen, is this likely to be implemented? Is the 130 speed limit at risk?

Denmark has done so much right when it comes to traffic and infrastructure policy in the last years, I sure hope it won't change!

When it comes to Copenhagen, the city is already governed by a centre-left coalition and this was only the parliamentary elections. Correct me if I'm wrong, but AFAIK the congestion charge was indeed proposed by the City Council and it is ultimately a local decision. The new government however seem to be very supportive.

On a national level, the outgoing government has indeed prioritized many successful projects over the years but I do hope to at least see some renewed interest for investment in Øresund infrastructure and further regional integration. For example, the outgoing government showed very little interest for the proposed HH-tunnel as they only looked nationally for solutions.

And why on earth would it be the priority of the new govt. to cancel already approved motorway projects and to lift the 130 km/h limit? Danish politics, just as Swedish, is not built on conflict but on consensus and power-sharing agreements. At least the motorway speed limit is definitely not a big issue in Danish society.

As for public transport I do hope to see some serious investment in the national rail network which is still not, in 2011, completely electrified and also carries with it ridiculous speed limitations rendering it incompatible for fair competition, at the same time utterly useless as an alternative to journeys by car.

Leftist governments are not always that bad for roads. German SPD is generally supportive of motorway construction and widenings.

Construction of a new motorway to Kalundborg will commence shortly. It's phase 1 indicated on this map:

Well, that's only half true. A congestion charge, or whatever we choose to call it, around a nation's capital is never a purely local issue. I know the city council in CPH has argued for this for years, but hasn't it been blocked by the current government?

It'll be interesting to see what happens.

I agree! Another example are the ridiculous "increased border checks" along the German and Swedish borders, I imagine they will cancelled by a new majority in Parliament.

The HH-tunnel would certainly also be very interesting and a great way to strenghten integration in the Øresund region. I guess a tunnel would eventually create demand for a Ring 5 motorway from Helsingör to Köge...

My point wasn't that centre-left governments are generally "bad for roads", I was merely curious as to what - if any - plans that had been presented during the election campaign. As you may be aware, during the last election in Sweden, both the Stockholm bypass (Förbifart Stockholm) and the 120 speed limit were issues settled by the Parliamentary election of 2010.

My personal opinion is, we´ll see much more investment in trains vs motorways, under the new goverment.

But saying this, I also think the new goverment, will have a short life in the parliament, they are simply to different.

I'm officially neutral on this one as I'm commuting by train myself, which for me personally is both faster and cheaper. I just hope that if the charge is introduced, they will find a way to combine it with the Öresund bridge toll.

When the charge was introduced in Stockholm a lot of investment in public transport was promised, but so far they've managed to build (except for the planned motorway bypass) what exactly, a tram line? In Copenhagen a massive investment has been made to expand and integrate the public transport network by building the metro, which is still ongoing. So I see a Copenhagen congestion charge as more justified as it will at least bring some value for money.

A 5th Ring would indeed be a great and very much needed addition!

I definitely see your point. What we are forgetting, compared to Sweden and Germany, is that the new government will be a 'purely' centre-left one as there is no proper Green Party in Denmark with only rail transport on their mind.

Especially if Helsingør-Helsingborg tunnel will be a reality then a 5.ringway would be justified, maybe before!
Motorring 3 is "soon" finished and there is no space for further widening unless we remove some houses along this aea.

Denmark has done so much right when it comes to traffic and infrastructure policy in the last years, I sure hope it won't change!
Social Democrats, who will be the main party in a new coalition, have specifically stated that the 130 km/h will remain. The entire infrastructure policy until 2020 is based on a consensus agreement between all parties in Parliament, except for a small leftist party (Red/Greens), and according to Danish parliament "rules-of -the-game" such an agreemnt will not be changed even with a new government.

However it will be a new minister who shall implement the consensus agreement, and - depending on who will be the new minister - we will probably see some changes, especially changes favouring public transport, including lower fares and new light rail projects. But motorway projects allready approved are not at risk, but whether projects not allready approved will be promotes remains to be seen.
