Apparently schools teach different things in different countries.

Another viewpoint: this is a logistics-oriented forum. In the land-logistical point of view, the Baltic Sea and Skagerrak-Kattegat make an obstacle. Obviously this is a bigger issue to Sweden and Norway than it is to Denmark. In this context it is practical to have a common name to include Sweden and Norway but exclude Denmark.

There is also a name which is used to include Finland and the Russian Karelia and Kola peninsula with Sweden and Norway; that's Fennoscandia.

Primærrute 18 - Midtjyske Motorvej

Brande bypass is currently being widened to a motorway. The project is due for completion in October 2014. Then there will be a continuous motorway from E45 at Vejle to Herning.

Some good news.

Funding has been secured for the construction of the Herning - Holstebro motorway. 3.4 billion DKK goes to this project, that should be completed in 2018.

Additionally, funding has also been secured for the replacement of the Storstrøm Bridge. The main function of this bridge is to carry trains from Hamburg to København once the Fehmarn Belt Tunnel is completed, but it also carries a secondary road. 4 billion DKK will flow to this project. The current bridge dates from 1937 and is in poor structural condition. The new bridge will be constructed between 2018 and 2021, in time for the Fehmarn Belt Tunnel opening (2021).

Not quite yet... Nothing official on the Herning - Holstebro motorway yet. Regarding the new Storstrøm Bridge, only the funding for the detailed design has been agreed so far. Funding for the construction works itself will be discussed next year.

The Holstebro motorway is decided today.


Also an expansion of the Køge Bugt motorway from 6 to 8 lanes from Greve S to Køge Vest, the first part from Greve S to Solrød S is already decided.


http://www.trm.dk/da/publikationer/2...tale+21+marts/



Not a motorway but a new road bridge is being constructed south of Frederikssund, it will be denmarks 4rd toll road after Storebælt, Øresund and Fehmarn Belt fixed link.

I´m not sure but perhaps its because of the Nordic Union where no passport checks are done between the countries (even Norway that are not a member of EU)

This predates the Schengen union.

Funds for the VVM trial, for the new A11 bypass west of Ribe was also found, and when they invest money for a VVM trial in Denmark, that means the project is approved.:

The expansion of the Helsingør motorway from 4 to 6 lanes is now begun.

These pictures is from the demolition of the bridge at Elleslettegårdsvej in Vedbæk north of Copenhagen.






It must be scarry to drive under that bridge.

In two weeks time I'll be visiting Denmark for the very first time. I have therefore a few questions:

Can you park on the left side of the road or not?
Do cyclists have right of way and when specificly?
Are daytime running lights enough or you need dimmed lights?

If you know about anyother peculiar rules considenring driving on B roads and in cities please tell.

Dipped headlights are compulsary since 1990. But nowadays many cars are equipped with LED DRL lights, so you don't have to use the rear lights. Some models have dipped headlights with reduced voltage.

I don't know about the fog lights in DK. Can you use them as DRL lights during the day when there is no fog ?

Giving the right of way for bicyclists and pedestrians are far more obeyed than in other countries like Poland.
Copenhagen is a very bicycle friendly city with bicycle paths. I don't think you have that many cyclists in Warsaw?
In Copenhagen bicyclists tend to speed and if you accidently walk or park on a bicycle lane you will create great irritation.

Do you know if they have a opening date for the part between Solrød S and Køge Vest.

They have to build the Lyngvej bridge in cooperation with the railway construction (Copenhagen - Ringsted) but will they widening the motorway at the same time.

Ministry of Transport announced a couple of weeks ago that it was decided/approved that widening of the section Solrød S - Motorvejskryds Køge Vest (E20/E47 split) from 6 to 8 lanes will be carried out in conjunction with Greve S - Solrød S section due to cost saving considerations. However unless the tender for the Greve S - Solrød S section, which has been completed, included an option for the Solrød S- Køge Vest section, it is unlikely that this section can be carried out within the same time frame (until 2015). A completion in 2016-2017 is more likely.

Quick one:

Is a regular German-style parking disc enough or do I need the Danish version sticked to the windshield when parking in Denmark?

When I drove in Grenå, DK last time in 2007 they provided free parking discs in kiosks and at the tourist office.

The Minister of Transport has asked the Financial Committee of the Danish Parliament for approval to start detailed design and construction of the section Solrød S - Køge Vest. In the application to the Commitee it is stated that the widening will be completed in 2018. http://www.ft.dk/RIpdf/samling/20121..._anmeldt83.pdf
