The first section of the Frederikssund Motorway will open Sunday 18 December in København, it's the first link between Motorring 3 and O4, which was previously an exit of O4 with traffic lights. The works include a new stack interchange with the Motorring 3.

The inauguration was yesterday, traffic can flow on Sunday.

Probably a tunnel, but nothing is clear for now.

Sweden is very keen to go ahead with a Helsingør-Helsingborg link (called the H-H connection)for as well motorway and rail. Denmark is however very reluctant for a number of reasons. Firstly a H-H link competes with other big infrastructure projects in Denmark, with much more backing. Secondly it will require a very problematic new infrastructure to the north and west of Copenhagen.

The current railway line and motorway between Helsingør and Copenhagen is running at full capacity with local traffic. Locally it will be hard to justify new infrastructure, it be upgrading/expanding current infrastructure or building a new Ring 5 connection west of Copenhagen, basically only to serve Swedish transit traffic (heavy goods train and lorrys). The area north and north-west of Copenhagen is sensitive in a number of ways. It is rather scenic and serve as a green lung for Copenhagen, but just as important it is the the most affluent area of Copenhagen and Denmark, meaning citizens crying up is not anybody. The NIMBY's will be those who really have a voice, business men, politicians and higher civil servants who will be personally affected of new infrastucture.

If you build a Helsingør - Helsingborg motorway / rail tunnel, wouldn't this reduce pressure on the Øresund rail link (freight trains), in a way that the proposed subway from København to Malmö will not be necessary?

Probably, but it will require a dedicated freight line from Helsingør around Copenhagen, which will meet stiff local/Danish opposition. The preferred solution from Danish side on the issue of freight capacity is a dedicated freight line (tunnel) from Peberholm (the artificial island in the middle of Øresund) bypassing Copenhagen Airport and connecting to the railway system just south of Copenhagen. The main capacity problem (especially freight trains in transit) on the existing Øresund connection is not the mainline railway across Øresund, but through the Airport railwaystation and the section from Copenhagen Airport to Copenhagen.

Maybe someone will oppose the rail/motorway connection in the Ring 5 corridor but the lands has been reserved for this connection and has for several years (decades) so it can´t come as a surprice for the locals.

It will be finished in 2016. I don't know why it takes so long, the large viaduct was already significantly completed back in April when I drove there. Sønderborg Motorway is constructed much faster.

The Silkeborg area is worth a stop though. Probably the most scenic place of Denmark.

Today it's exactly 56 years ago the first motorway of Denmark opened to traffic.

Even though construction of the E47 Sydmotorvejen in Lolland started in the 1940's, the E47 Helsingørmotorvejen just north of København was the first motorway to open to traffic, on January 23rd, 1956. It was almost 8 kilometers long and ran from Kongens Lyngby to Hørsholm.

Looks quite similar to the Malmö-Lund motorway. And thats not so strange. Maybe they looked at that motorway when they built this one. Malmö-Lund motorway opened in 1953 so its only 3 years older.

My impressions of the danish motorway E47

Helsingör-Copenhagen: heavy traffic, lots of trucks
Copenhagen area: wide 6 lane motorway, fast paced, probably the most intense traffic in all Scandinavia.

South of Köge where E20 splits of: Quite normal traffic, but dense
South of Storströmmen-Rödby: Few cars, easy to drive.

Danish motorways have high standard, good signage, driving is mostly relaxed (except Copenhagen area) It's a pleasure to drive on danish motorways !
