Traffic on the 2 major fixed links is also growing. On the Great Belt Fixed Link, traffic grew with 4,4 Pct. in 2014, and traffic is now 3 Pct. higher than the previous peak in 2008. On the Øresund Fixed Link traffic grew with 3,5 Pct. in 2014, but is still 2,6 Pct. below the 2009 peak.

Speed Limits on ordinary roads to be raised

It seems like speed limits on non-motorways outside of towns will be raised from 80 to 90 km. http://www.dr.dk/Nyheder/Politik/2015/03/11/185100.htm

According to press a majority in Parliament supports a proposal from the junior partner in Government to raise the general speed limit on ordinary roads from 80 to 90 kph. Trials have been carried out over the past 4 years on around 100 km of non-expressways, and the conclusion has been that fewer were speeding above 100 kph on these roads than on other roads, and that the traffic flow has been more steady on these roads.

Nice. I read a report earlier that a 90 km/h speed limit caused less people to overtake other vehicles and actually resulted in less excessive speeding.

Took a detour home from work today to have a look at the Frederikssund Motorway (route 17), opening later this year. The pictures are from the Hold-An Vej overpass.

Notice, on the first two pictures you can easily see the contract boundary between the interchange contract and the large design-and-build motorway contract.









The overpass is partly a regular road overpass and partly a fauna passage for horses, which is why it has a rather strange almost 2 m high bridge guardrail in one side next to a gravel path, which is seperated from the road with a wooden kerb. I have never seen this solution before!



I also drove past the Ledøjetoften overpass, but I couldn't park my car anywhere near the bridge, so no pictures from there, but I can tell, that they are not even closely to do asphalt works at that location - they haven't even finished the earthworks. The new junctions on the overpass for the exit and entry ramps are however all done, a roundabout at the future exit ramp and a regular T junction at the entry ramp - the latter is currently used as entrance to the construction site.

PR-18 Holstebro Motorway

The first sod was turned on the Holstebro Motorway project. It is a 39 kilometer new motorway that will run along the western side of Herning, along current primary route 18 to Holstebro, and turning around Holstebro.

The first 10 kilometer segment around Herning is planned to open early 2017. The rest to Holstebro will open in 2018. Many motorway projects in Denmark are finished ahead of schedule, so it seem plausible it could open earlier than planned if there are no unforeseen problems.

Its a shame that they don't make the part of route 18 northeast of Herning to motorway standard.

If Swedish politicians some day would think like you in Denmark about roads....

It will eventually. Traffic is allready around 11.000 - 12.000 on this short stretch of 1+1 expressway (6-7 km), and is expected to increase by another 5-6.000 when the motorway has been completed to the north. Local politicians hopes that upgrading of this short stretch can be financed within the 30 % budget reserve of the Herning-Holstebro project.

I though there was more traffic that 12.000.

Here in Køge we have our own bypass trouble, everyday there is 18.000 cars coming down south from the stevns peninsula.

In Køge they only have 2 roads o choose from in order to hit the motorway.

They can continue along Strandvejen/Toldbodvej/Østre Banevej and Væftvej, its the most direct way but especially Strandvejen is only suited for local traffic.

The other route is Søndre Viaduktvej/Ringvejen/Københavnsvej, this route is more suited for the heavy traffic and has 2 lanes in each direction for most of the route.
But here the traffic is around 25.000 cars per day.

And with huge project like Køge Kyst, the expansion of the port, Køge Park and the University Hospital then Køge is pushing the limits on how much traffic it can handle.

Stevns Municipality has suggested to build a bypass from around Strøby Egede and ti either north or south of Herfølge and out to Sydmotorvejen with an exit between 33 and 34.

Køge Municipality doesn't want a route so close to Herfølge and has instead suggested a route that goes all the way from Hårlev and over to Slimmingevej and exit 34 on the Sydmotorvejen.
This route only moves around 4-5.000 cars away from the streets of Køge but a route much closer to Køge will move away 10-12.000 cars and will be cheaper to build as the route to Sydmotorvejen willl be shorter.

Yes - but is hard to compare a long distance national route outside a town, with a local access road within an urban area. The access road from Stevns is a local municipal road. A new local access road to the national network is a matter for the local authorities to finance/build, like many other local access roads around the country, with just as high AADT, as the one in Køge.

For another matter, the Minister of Transport has announced that he will seek political approval to start up the EIA procedure for an extension of the Hillerød Motorway, north of Copenhagen. http://sn.dk/Nordsjaelland/S-vil-for...artikel/477042
Right now the motorway (Route 16) stops at Allerød and continues as a 2+1 expressway, with som provisions for future widening to full motorway. The current AADT on the 2+1 section is between 23000 and 30000

Perhaps you are right but it hasn't stopped both Stevns and Køge from asking their local Folketings politicians for help with financing of this road.

And the local politicians in Køge are very certain that the Stevns traffic isn't for them to fix.

I stayed on that campsite near Søndre Viaduktvej a few years ago. Københavnsvej has separate left turns, which is uncommon in the Netherlands. The road felt a bit like an American urban arterial as a four-lane divided highway.

Of course they have to try, but they don't stand a chance. Other municipalities/local authorities in the completely same situation are right now investing local money in a number of similar projects, with new local roads connecting areas to the national motorway network, and thus relieving existing urban roads. Køge/Stevns is no different.

Odense: Local authorities funded the Ring 3 connection connecting North-eastern Funen (including Kerteminde) with motorway E20, and relieving local roads through Odense with an AADT of 17.000-25.000. Cost: DKK 120 mio. in 2005

Horsens: The municipalities of Horsens and Hedensted has agreed to fund and construct a new access road between the Juelsminde-Peninsula and motorway E45 in Horsens over the next 3 years, relieving urban roads in Horsens with an AADT of 10.000-22.000. Cost for local authorities of DKK 150 mio.

Aarhus: The city of Aarhus have approved a new access road connecting the Odder-area south-east of the city to motorway E45, and relieving urban roads in the southern part of Aarhus with an AADT 15.000-30.000. The new acess road has a price tag of DKK 150-200 mio.

Aalborg: Has started construction of a new access road connecting the Eastern Himmerland area with motorway E45, south of Aalborg, and thus relieving local urban roads in the south-eastern part of Aalborg, with an AADT of up to 20000. City of Aalborg is investing DKK 257 mio. in this project

Not to mention Nordhavnsforbindelsen in Copenhagen, where the City of Copenhagen is investing DKK 2 bn, in what is basically a new access road to a development area (Nordhavn) and at the same time relieving existing local roads.

Hehe Ringvejen and Københavnsvej is also a result of the booming 50'ies/60'ies so no wonder why they have that murica feeling.

The northern part of Københavnsvej has ben given a little facelift since your visit, the light poles has been replaced and I think the new light bulb is some kind of LED lights and the overhead cables/wires has been placed underground now.

Also the intersections has been rebuild in order to ease the traffic to and from the motorway via Lyngvej.

Little bit of highway construction around Køge.


New exit 31B at Egedesvej.


First seen from the relocated Egedesvej west of the motorvej.















From the motorway, coming from the north
