By the way - the pictures shown, except last one from the Farø Bridge approach, are from the section between Sakskøbing and Rødby. This section is the longest remaining unchanged section that was started during German occupation. Construction started in 1942m though it was only completed in early 60'es. The AADT remains very low at this section (7000-12000) which is probably why it has never been updated.

In conjunction with the Fehmarnbelt tunnel towards Germany - which will be located at the southern end of this section - this section will be updated with emergency lanes and modern netry and exit lanes. It is still discussed whether it will be updated to 130 km/h standard, or if sthe speed limit will remain at 110 km/h.

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 !

Is this expressway or motorway? Because it lacks emergency lanes...

A hard shoulder will be constructed as part of an upgrade prior to the Fehmarn Belt Fixed Link together with alteration of some junctions. Although, the speed will not be raised to 130 km/t, as the hard shoulder will not be contructed under some existing bridges there are too narrow.

Have you ever seen a release 2.0 website being better than the release 1.0 in terms of usability?

It surprises me they are rather serious about this motorway. The project doesn't strike me as particularly urgent, especially if its function should be to relieve E45.

I think it's best to construct a motorway from Esbjerg to Herning and further via Viborg to E45 south of Aalborg, and maybe widen the E45 from Vejle to Aarhus to 2x3 lanes. I don't think this new motorway will attract a large volume of traffic, but it will improve the integration of central Jutland by providing fast and safe links between all major centers.

Is it really needed? I mean, Midtjyske is under construction, Viborg Hovedvej (road 13) is in very good condition and bypasses all towns.

I drive every day between Vejle and Aarhus and I do my best to avoid the rushhours. The lane is always filled up with trucks, so the cars has only one lane to drive. In Vejle and Skanderborg we often end up an a que and often we have stop, not because of any accident or road maintenance, it's just because there are to many cars and to low capacity.

So we have to do something about this before it get stucked.

A new parallel highway from Vejle to Viborg and further to Aalborg is a very good idea from my piont of view. It will also relieve the dangerous highway 13 from Vejle to Viborg.

I disagree.... I try to avoid road 13. There are may trucks and slows cars and diffecult to overtake these cars many places. There are also many secondary roads coming out to road 13, which also end up in dangerous situations. Last time it drove I saw at least 4 situations which have could end up in a bad way.

Many off all your thoughts, can be seen in this pdf.:

http://www.ft.dk/samling/20111/almde...33/1083962.pdf

It looks more and more, to a western solution (A13). Widening the E45 is seen as a secondary solution!

I was thinking about expressways. Most countries have 4-lane, grade-separated expressways. Denmark doesn't have such roads to my knowledge, except maybe for a short section of Primærrute 9 in Svendborg. Is there a particular reason for this "all or nothing" phenomenon?

I'm not aware of any 4-lane, divided & grade-separated motortrafikvejer.

Because such a road takes up as much space as a motorway, and frankly, we'd much rather have motorways.

Adding to Spikesspiegel comments it is rather hard to see the reason for such a type of road. It requires as much land and the cost is more or less the same.

However the motorways around Herning (route 15 and 18) was initilly planned as as grade separated, 4-lane expressway (motortrafikvej) with emergency lanes. Allready during detailed plannig it was decided that the route 18 part shoud be signed as a motorway, but it was only very late - shortly before opening - that it was decided that the short route 15 section to the south of Herning also should be signed as motorway. It was easily done, as the Danish design specifications was/is the same as for a motorway within a city/town, ie. 3,5 m lanes and 110 km/h speed limit, where it is 3,75 m lanes and 130 km/h in open land.

Recently when Vejdirektoratet presented the plan for route 26 (Aarhus-Viborg) upgrading on the sections close to Aarhus and around Viborg, it was announced that the section close to Aarhus was planned to be a 130 km/h motorway, where the relatively short section around Viborg, which will be within Viborg city/townboundaries, was to be 110 km/h 4-lane grade separated expressway/motortrafikvej. My interpretation for this was that until the Viborg section was connected to the motorway network this section would be signed as a expressway/motortrafikvej, and then when connected to the motorway network easily re-signed as a motorway.

Another motorway project is shaping up now the EIA has been released of the upgrade of Skovvejen to motorway to Kalundborg. It will mainly use the existing alignment, except for the last few kilometers near Kalundborg.

Another EIA for a motorway project was published a week ago. This time it is the Route 18 Herning-Holstebro.
http://www.vejdirektoratet.dk/DA/vej...ort416_web.pdf

The main issue is whether the motorway should go south-west around Herning or more logically east of Herning, and whether it at the northern end should end south of Holstebro or north of Holstebro.

Local politicians want it to go south-west around Herning and end to the north of Holstebro, but looking at the trafiic forecast for the different alignments, it is obvious that it should go to the east of Herning and end before Holstebro.

According to the EIA the motorway can be completed 2017-2020, depending on funding.
