I've read that they want to apply the final asphalt next year, but that 2x4 lanes will be available later this year. This 1-2 years ahead of schedule, the original plan was a completion in 2018.

Køge Bugt Motorvejen

I drove from Præstø to Helsingör on june 26th. The traffic on "sydmotorvejen" was normal but as we approached Köge congestions started,due to roadwork traffic was really thick for about 15km and there were times when cars completely stopped.

I would definately recommend to take off before Köge and drive on road 6 through Roskilde instead to reach Helsingör, it's much more pleasant driving although a it's a slower route and slightly longer, ca 10km.

I drove that stretch as well, there was a huge traffic jam southbound during the afternoon rush hour.

On the way back I took PR-21 to Roskilde and then PR-14 to Ringsted. It's not necessarily faster, but I hadn't driven primary route 14 before. It was quite a busy road. They should build a bypass at Osted / Kirkebjerg.

Or maybe a completely new road, there is quite a bit of houses along the road.

Apparently there are some people pushing for a Roskilde - Ringsted Motorway: http://roskilde.lokalavisen.dk/erhve...kler/704229949

It is also mentioned in a 2012 report about congestion in the Copenhagen area: Anlæg af højklasset vej mellem Ringsted og Roskilde (rute 14)

Route 14 could possibly be used as a southern leg of a regional bypass. Motorring 5 was planned to start closer to Køge so it catches traffic from E47 as well. A motorway from Ringsted to Roskilde will mainly catch traffic from E20.

Traffic volumes are fairly high, with 19,000 vehicles per day between Roskilde and Osted and 13,000 vehicles per day from Osted to Ringsted.

That weekend they were tearing down a bridge, and it was temporarily reduced to two, sometime only one lane in each direction. You can see it in the video at 7:25. There's more details about it here. It was back to 3 lanes in each direction monday morning.

There's usually no trouble outside of rush hour. But they prefer to schedule lane closings to weekends, so one should prepare for that

Also, route 6 only starts at the very place the queue ends, so i would not recommend that.

Vejdirektoratet pushes for a southern part of the ring 5 motorway instead.

This motorway will go from around Solrød on the Køge Bugt motorvejen to Frederikssundsmotorvejen.


Køges Mayor wants it to start at Motorvejskryds Køge Vest, it will make the motorway some 10-15 kilometres longer but will reduce traffic on Køge Bugt all the way from Køge Vest instead of only Solrød.

Motorring 5

Vejdirektoratet has published a report detailing the traffic analysis in the Hovestaden region (Capital City Region).

In 2015, there was a proposal to end the spatial reserve for transportation corridors in the 'Finger Plan' that has existed since the 1940s. Plans for a transportation corridor also included a railroad, possibly in conjunction with a Helsingør - Helsingborg Tunnel. The proposal obviously attempts to block any development of a transportation corridor.

The report indicates continued traffic growth, in particular for traffic with an origin and destination outside the city core, resulting in higher traffic loads on Motorring 3 and a higher demand for circumferential infrastructure. Vejdirektoratet recommends to keep the spatial reservation intact for a future transportation corridor.

Apparently several routes were studied. Motorring 5 follows the transportation corridor, while Ring 6 is further west and ring 5½ is between those routes. These routes all originate near Køge and end on E47 south of Helsingør.

The reports contains some interesting graphs. For example only 7% of trips on Motorring 4 have a destination in the inner city, 58% is to the outer suburbs, 23% in the inner suburbs and 12% to Amager.

Other projects that are mentioned are the last part of Frederikssunds motorvejen, plus extension to the new Roskilde Fjord Crossing.

Extension of Hillerød Motorvejen to just north of Hillerød where it will connection to a large main road.

Extension of M4 between Ballerup and the Hillerød Motorvejen, first part will be 2X2 motorway and the last part 2X2 main road.
I can't remember where the line goes but it says in the report.:-)

Both M5, Frederikssund and Hillerød will be 2X2 but it has been suggested to make the southern part of M5 between Køge Vest and Holbæk Motorvejen 3x3 or at least reserve space for the 2 extra lanes.

It's suggested to keep the max speed at 110 km/h just like the rest of the motorways in the capital region.

And with the savings, I would much rather see works on the Ringe Bøjden Fynshav corridor which will not only relieve Trekantområdet but also the Odense to Nørre Åby stretch which is a proper nightmare, as well as connect Fyn much better to the rest of the world.
A does not serve the purpose of relieving E45 of traffic where it is most critical i.e. at the Vejle Fjord Bridge, where an expansion/duplication is very complicated. A serves Herning very well with yet another motorway, but is rather irrelevant for long distance traffic.

The Ringe-Bøjden-Fynshav corridor looks very pretty on a map, but when it comes to reality on the ground it will not relieve Trekantområdet (Fredericia-Vejle-Kolding) for much traffic, as only a neglible fraction of the traffic on E20 on western Funen or through Trekantområdet travels the full distance from Odense to Aabenraa/Flensburg and could thus make use of a Ringe-Bøjden-Fynshav connection.

In what way A doesn't serve this purpose, when it takes all traffic from Aalborg, Herning and the Northwest(admittedly not too much) to Kolding and southwards away from Vejle?

Also, my observation about the second part of your comment is not entirely the same.

Although corridor A provides a new motorway route west of Vejle, it doesn't catch traffic from Kolding and Odense as much. That traffic will likely continue to use E45 and split off north of the Vejlefjord Bridge.

Corridor A is more of a regional link between towns and cities in central Jutland, but not as much a reliever for E45.

It appears though that E45 needs more six-laning regardless whether a Rute 13 motorway is built. Especially from Vejle to Aarhus.

It can be made 16 lanes, doesn't change the fact that it is now and will be pretty much the single fixed connection between eastern and northern Denmark.There were once plans to connect Sjælland and Julland through Samsø....that is a more permanent solution in my opinion

Denmark approves new Storstrøm Bridge

THE Danish parliament has agreed by a large majority to fund construction of a new road and rail bridge between the islands of Falster and Masnedø, which will be part of the hinterland link from Copenhagen to the Fehmarn Belt tunnel.

Chris is correct on both aspects. According to the published report a corridor A solution will only relieve the Vejle Fjord Bridge for about 5-6 % of traffic (will not catch long distance traffic from Aalborg and Northern Jutland) whereas corridor B+ will relieve Vejle Fjord for allmost 20 % of traffic, as it will catch long distance traffic from Northern Jutland to as well the south of Jutland/Germany and the East Funen/Zealand.

But Chris is also correct that 6-laning of E45 is needed anyway, especially between Vejle N and Aarhus, even if a route 13 (or more likely called E39) is constructed. But with such a New motorway a complex and very expensive widening or duplication of the Vejle Fjord Bridge night be avoided.

It's interesting to observe the strong traffic growth on Danish motorways. Traffic on motorways has grown by nearly 25% since 2007, despite the crisis years.



Traffic volume growth on select locations:


Just notice the huge growth of traffic on the Vejlefjord Bridge, from 68,000 vpd in 2013 to 82,000 vpd in 2016. Of course this can be attributed to the completion of Rute 13/18 north of Vejle, but it's still a remarkable growth of traffic.

PR-17 Frederikssund Motorway

Today it is exactly 1 year ago that the Rute 17 / Frederikssund Motorway extension near Copenhagen opened to traffic. The new segment runs from the Ballerup motorway interchange to Tværvej near Smørum, just outside Copenhagen.

Here are some photos of Rute 17 / Frederikssund Motorway, taken last month.

1. The Rødovre motorway interchange features a left exit to Rute 17.

PR-17-1 by European Roads, on Flickr

2. On the right is Motorring 3, the motorway bypass of Copenhagen.

PR-17-2 by European Roads, on Flickr

3. On Rute 17, the first exit is Ejby. There are a couple of places in Denmark with this name.

PR-17-3 by European Roads, on Flickr

4. O3 is a surface street that forms a secondary bypass of Copenhagen. Not to be confused with Motorring 3 which is a motorway. O4 and Motorring 4 are the same road though...

PR-17-4 by European Roads, on Flickr

5. Approaching the Ballerup motorway interchange with Motorring 4, the second and incomplete bypass of Copenhagen.

PR-17-5 by European Roads, on Flickr

6.

PR-17-6 by European Roads, on Flickr

7. The speed limit is 110 km/h like most motorways in Greater Copenhagen.

PR-17-7 by European Roads, on Flickr

8. Smørum is an outer suburb of Copenhagen.

PR-17-8 by European Roads, on Flickr

9.

PR-17-9 by European Roads, on Flickr

10.

PR-17-10 by European Roads, on Flickr

11. The motorway ends temporarily at Tværvej, which is not a place, but a road that connects the motorway to the old road. Tværvej opened at the same time as the motorway.

PR-17-11 by European Roads, on Flickr

12. There is no exit signage for Tværvej for now. Traffic does not have any other option than to exit.

PR-17-12 by European Roads, on Flickr

13.

What is the status of the plans? When will they start constuction and when will the new Helsingør - Helsingborg Tunnel be completed?
