I was there a few weeks ago. The roadworks caused long queues on the lanes bound for Copenhagen, stretching several kilometers to west of the Køge Vest interchange E20xE47/E55.



In order to avoid getting stuck there, I made the return trip to home over Holbækmotorveijen to Roskilde and then over the H-H ferry instead of taking the Öresund bridge.

Most of the traffic jams comes from Vestmotorvejen (E20) as the the 2 eastbound lanes becomes 1 just before the intersection.


Jobs that has to be done on this section are from west/south to north.


Ølbyvej bridge has to be raised because of the nearby railway construction.

Bellingestien tunnel has to be widened.

Exit 32 will get new ramps on the western side of the motorway and a new bridge will be constructed just north of the current bridge.

The tunnel that leads the Lille Syd railway line under the motorway has to be widened.

A new railway tunnel for connection between the new high speed line and the Lille Syd line.

A new bridge on Ølsemaglevej, when done it will only be for pedestrians and cyclists.

New Egedesvej bridge is done, ramps for the new exit 31B will open later this month.

New wider bridge over the Lille Skensved Å (small creek)

New exit ramps and new bridge on exit 31A at Roskildevej.

All this happens over a distance of 6 kilometers.

Stage 1 consists of 8 kilometers from exit 31A at Solrød Syd to 29 at Greve Syd and here only the asphalt is missing but that should be done next weekend according to schedule.

On Monday we will see the opening of the fourth lane, on the Køge Bugt motorway(E20, E47, E55), between Solrød S and Greve S.
And thus we only need the last piece between Solrød S and Køge West.

German media reports that the opening of the Fehmarnbelt Tunnel has been delayed from 2021 to 2024 due to the extremely slow procedures of the plan approval process on the German side.

In addition, the Fehmarnsund Bridge (connecting the island of Fehmarn with the German mainland) is in very poor condition. It was originally not planned to replace or expand the bridge, but a bridge inspection and static calculations in 2014 found out the bridge was in much poorer condition than thought and could not support the increase of freight trains.

At the same time, the bridge is in such poor condition that the speed limit for trucks has been reduced to only 50 km/h since yesterday. The speed limit for cars has been reduced to 60 km/h since March (it originally only applied during strong winds).

The bridge may have been closed to truck traffic over 7.5 tons like elsewhere in Germany, except that in this case that would mean trucks could not reach the ferry at Puttgarden anymore, cutting off this vital link between Denmark and Germany. There are significant economic stakes at risk with the rapidly deteriorating infrastructure in Germany. Many bridges have now come into a phase of complete write-off instead of repairs.

That is just sad since Denmark is going to pay for it (and get the income from it) so Germany should not try to slow it down. But Germany will also benefit from it since more will be likely to travel down on weekends compared to now when you have to wait over an hour for the ferry transport, including time spent paying/showing ticket and waiting for the ferry.

That's bad! Residents and generally opponents don't want to have more traffic. That's why they are fighting against the project.

Well sure, the world need less traffic and especially germany. But perhaps the effect would not be bigger compared to now, if the motorway from hamburg was to be extended to the tunnel so they dont drive on the local roads.

But there would also be the option to take the train, once the tunnel is done you could easly take the train and the heavy transport could also be taken care on the rails. But overall I dont think they will suffer more than today since a lot of transit traffic to Sweden and Norway also goes through Rostock or Sazznitz.

It's not my opinion. I just write what I get from media.

There is already a motorway (2x2, mostly w/o hard shoulders and in a damn bad condition). There are no cross-town links on Fehmarn island (where motorway is not yet built), there's no traffic on local roads.......

The discussion is (almost) only about railway. The opponents don't want to have the existing railway route to be widened and they don't want a new railway route! The road is just a minor problem which is usually not mentioned in discussion.

I ment that part where it is not a motorway, as a local road, since a slow vehicle can create longer lines of cars.

Thats interesting to hear. I would have thought they would be in favour of a better railway.

It's B207, a "Federal highway". Local traffic has to use the Fehmarnsund brigde but on Fehmarn island, there are "parallel" local roads and B207 is almost just used by transit traffic.

I quote wikipedia:

Quote:
There is also criticism on the increase of noise for some residents and visitors when moving the freight train traffic from the Jutland-Schleswig route to this route. These critics have been the loudest and they have been able to get a realignment of the planned railway route.
The realigned route has ecological issues...

Citizens' initiatives incorporated their activity in June 2015: http://beltretter.de/ (belt rescuers). There's also an English article: Become a beltretter.

Experts assume that the swirling will turn the Baltic Sea between Denmark and Germany into a downright sludge. And that in view of the fact that the tunnel might not make any economical sense at all.

The last stripe has been put on the pavement from Solrød S - Greve S (E20/E47/E55 Køge bugt motorvejen), so now the first section is finished. 4 lanes in each direction is now available. The last section from the Køge junction - Solrød S will be finished in 2017/2018, so the motorists will not be total free of traffic jams in the upcoming text 2 or 3 years. the widening was needed because it serves 113700 vehicles per day in the area with most traffic (according to Vejdirektoratet "average traffic per day 2014").

I couldn't find the document. Does it contain the AADT figures of all Danish motorways?
