The last image is next to Karlslunde gasstation.
The work on Køge-Bugt motorway is "visible" now. The pictures are taken between Solrød and Karlslunde.

A rather bizar decision on the alignment around Herning. Local politicians in Herning were adamant that they wanted an alignment to the west of Herning They wanted the Route 18 motorway to be routed south and west of Herning instead of the current alignment to the east of Herning, including an upgrade of current route 15 to the south of Herning from 1+1 expressway (orange) to full motorway. The argument for this solution was quicker access to the new hospital (purple dot), but primarily for local development concerns.

Road Directorate (Vejdirektoratet) on the other hand, wanted the current route 18 1+1 expressway (orange) to the east/northeast of Herning upgraded to motorway, whereas a new connecting road to the new regional hospital should be an ordinary 1+1 road.

The argument from Road Directorate were quite strong:

1. lower cost, and significantly lower benefit/cost ratio

2. low traffic amount on an western aligment (AADT around 5.000), but around 15.000 on eastern alignment

3.insignificant (less than a minut) time gain with motorway access to hospital instead of ordinary 1+1 road

In a typical, but not very pretty, political give-and-take-decision, a compromise was decided: Route 18 will remain aligned to the east of Herning (the shortest route, which will be chosen by the motorists anyway), Herning will get its underutilised motorway to the west, but due to the high cost having the motorway option to the hospital, neither the current 1+1 route expressway to the east nor the current route 15 1+1 expressway to the south (the orange parts) will be upgraded to motorway standard.

The end result of the compromise is that Holstebro will not have full motorway access, as no matter which route you choose around Herning you will encounter a short section (5-7 km) of 1+1 expressway standard.

Thanks for the good explanation, and what a stupid outcome indeed.

Femernbelt Tunnel

The cross-section of the Femern / Fehmarn Belt Tunnel between Denmark and Germany.



The tunnel is 18 kilometers long, as you can see it has full motorway standard, including full-width shoulders, something you don't see often in long tunnels.

I wonder what the speed limit will be, I expect 110 km/h.

It's an immersed tube tunnel with segments of 42.2 meters wide, 8.9 meters tall and 217 meters long. To be constructed in a temporary site near Rødbyhavn. Each segment weighs 73500 tonnes.

To be constructed between 2015 and 2021. It will be the longest immersed tunnel ever constructed. It will be the second longest tunnel in Europe when it opens, but it will likely be passed by the planned Boknafjord Tunnel (25.5 km) in Norway within a year.

I wonder how much it would cost me if my car broke down in that tunnel ? and where is the emergency exit if I have to abandon my vehicle ?

I prefer the ferry and will probably use the Gedser-Warnemunde route in the future instead or other ferries.

Tunnels like these are statistically safer than regular motorways in the open air. There are emergency exits every 100 m.

Probably not much deeper than 30 - 35 meters. I haven't seen any official figures though.

The speed limits;

* road: 110 km/h
* freight trains: 140 km/h
* passenger trains: 200 km/h

Similar sea crossings have limits of 90 km/h for road traffic and 160 km/h for the railway. I presume that such speed limits will be applied on this tunnel as well.

Not much, I guess. It's everyone's interest that the tunnel is not blocked.

For instance at Mont Blanc the staff tows you out free of charge, if your car breaks for any reason other than running out of fuel. (Running out of fuel will cost you €300, though.)

An emergency exit should never be more than 200 metres away.

It's a very long tunnel for cars, but nothing special for trains. Not even in the top 20, I believe.

The Follobane-tunnel in Oslo will be longer and support trains running 250 km/h by 2019. 19,5 km will be the longest rail tunnel in the Nordics.

It would barely make top 20 today (number 18 if twin tubes are counted as one, or 19 and 20 if not).

However, it won't make it at the time it will be completed.
