I got some photos from the new motorway around Vejle.

First is the almost finished extension, of the E45, South of Vejle Fjord


The finished part begins just North of Vejle C (former Vejle S).



Here we are just 1000 meters from the new Herning motorway.



450 meters



And here is the newest part of the Herning motorway.

Nice. It seems that Århus has been replaced by Aarhus. I took this photo in 2007.

Yeah they changed to name starting from 2011, to make it more "international"

Not exactly a motorway but the Nykøbing F Bypass is part of Europa road E55 leading the traffic from the E47/E55 motorway to the ferry in Gedser.

The local newspaper has taken 18 airphotos of the bypass.

Accident involving several trucks at E20 Middelfart.

shutting down traffic on this busy motorway will result in queues.

the danish å is probably going to disappear not only from roadsigns but also from the danish language itself. the AA was used until 1948 then replaced by Å. Now the AA has returned again.

This traffic enters the tunnel on the left, but needs to exit on the right, with a fairly short time to cross the lanes.

I wonder if it has been considered to construct a third tube, for northbound traffic only, which will carry traffic from the city center to the first two exits north of the tunnel. This will eliminate weaving traffic in the tunnel. Southbound traffic has no weaving problems.
If the main issue is the northbound weawing, not congestion, the cheapest solution would be eliminating the need for weaving by reforming either of the exits at the tunnel ends. At the north end, there is a room to change the geometry to move the exit from right to left.

The traffic volume in the Limfjord Tunnel is not particularly high for six lanes. The old Coen Tunnel in the Netherlands carried nearly 80% more traffic on only four lanes, but had much less weaving than the Limfjord Tunnel. Excessive weaving can kill the efficiency of available capacity.

That is why I proposed reformatting either of the interchanges at the tunnel ends. There seems to be room to reroute the northbound carriageway of the E45. That solution leaves the bridge intact. The local northbound traffic would join and leave at left, thus eliminating a major part of weaving:

The problem is not there...

Its northbound just south of the tunnel.

Slow traffic from kridtsvinget should weave into the motorway from the left side, and that just before the tunnel.

Getting traffic out of the centre is just as big a reason for a 3rd connection.

A few facts told before:

- There are problems in the northbound pipe.
- There are no significant problems in the southbound pipe.
- Major fraction of the traffic is local traffic crossing Limfjorden.
- There is a significant amount on weaving in the northbound tunnel caused by the local traffic joining left and leaving right.

Right?

Thus, the capacity most probably is not the issue.

The cheapest way to relieve the problems caused by weaving is to remove the reason for the weaving. The quickest solution is to change the interchanges so that the major traffic flow (the local) joins at the same side, either right or left. According to satellite images, there is more space to do that at the north end. The existing bridge is valid in the proposed setup.

Another option is to change the setup of the south interchange: By adding a new flyover bridge and making the joining ramp to a branched one, the joining traffic could join on both left and right: the local traffic on the right, and the E45-bound traffic on the left:

There are major problems in Denmark due to the storm. Both the Øresund Bridge and the Little Belt Bridge are closed to traffic. According to TomTom there are delays of over 90 minutes each way to cross the Little Belt via the Old Little Belt Bridge at Middelfart. The Great Belt Bridge is open to traffic.

I wonder how they manage to keep the Great Belt Bridge open even in these conditions, and the Fehmarnsund-Bridge has to be closed anytime a little wind blows.

Well, there are some differences between the two.

Great Belt has 2x2 divided lanes + emergency lanes, while Fehmarnsund has 1+1 non-divided lanes.
Great Belt are east-west orientated, while Fehmarnsund are north-sound orientated, and the wind comes more or less from west.

That been said, Great Belt was closed for several hours this evening.

E20 Odense

Exit 50 of the E20 around Odense will be relocated. A new hospital will be constructed at a greenfield site and a new entrance road into the city will be constructed. Construction is planned to begin in late 2014.

E45 Vejle

The E45 widening between the split to E20 and Vejle interchange with primærrute 18 has been completed 2 years ahead of schedule. The inauguration event will be held on November 18. It was originally planned to be completed in 2015. A new interchange Vejle-Syd has also been constructed.
