Neither a motorway nor expressway, but a second carriageway is added to route 11 next to Ribe for 2.8 km including a new movable bridge to let bigger ships enter the port. To open in 2020: https://www.vejdirektoratet.dk/side/...rute-11-i-ribe
There will still be a grade-crossing with the railway and a roundabout though.


With the new national government since this Summer (social-democrats in minority ) I believe there will be less emphasis on road projects in the coming years. Maybe E55 from Sydmotorvejen to Nykøbing/Falster will get ahead or at least analysed before you can enact a construction law (VVM). Not only because of the increasing ferry traffic from Gedser but also because of popular Summer resorts nearby creating huge seasonal traffic ( esp. Marielyst which sees tens of thousands of visitors in the Summer time).

Which company is the main contractor?
I suppose that the new bridge will be based on steel structure, no concrete?

The new government is now in office for almost half a year, but judging by the press releases on the transport ministry website, they don't appear to be very active in improving mobility. On the other hand, no news may be good news...

The only good news is that there is a lot of talk in the press about a new 10-years infrastructure investment plan to be negotiated in spring 2020, and covering the period 2021-2030.

The current long term/10-years investment plan is coming to an end in 2020, and very few projects are in actual construction on the state road network, but a lot is in the planning pipeline.

The former government (center-right) negotiated a new investment plan in March 2019, which was only backed by a narrow majority of center-right parties in the parliament. The tradition in Denmark behind major infrastructure projects and –plans, is a broad majority including at least the major center-right party (the Liberals) and the major center-left party (Social democrats). As power changed after the general election in June 2019 from center-right to center-left (a Social Democrat minority government) infrastructure investment plan is no longer backed by a majority in Parliament – and therefore the null and void.

The new Minister has declared that he wants a very broad agreement – from extreme left to at least center-right (the Liberals), in order to make the agreement stand beyond next general election. That is probably very ambitious, as the extreme left cannot/will not back any motorway projects, and everyone else back the long list of motorway projects (new road and widening of old ones) in the planning pipeline.

I guess that the most likely scenario is an investment plan that on the road-side will look more or less as the one negotiated last year by the old government, and backed by as well Social Democrats as the Liberals, but accompanied by a some rail projects/public transport-projects, probably in a separate package negotiated with some of the parties on the left side.

traffic safety

Vejdirektoratet published some statistics regarding provisional figures of traffic safety for 2019. The number of traffic fatalities appears to end up around 205, which is above the recent average of 183 per year. However the graph shows that the total number of fatalities and injuries is lower for most modes of transport.

The Railway Gazette reports:
https://www.railwaygazette.com/infra.../55587.article
Quote:
DENMARK: There are good prospects for a road and rail fixed link across the Kattegat between Sjælland and Jylland, the government has announced. Further studies are to be undertaken, building on preliminary studies initiated by the previous government.
The proposed east–west link would shorten the travel time between København and the country’s second largest city Aarhus by up to 1½ h, with the potential to reduce domestic flights.
Further studies will now look at the environmental impacts of a fixed link. ‘It is crucial that we investigate a combined road and rail connection and not just a road connection’, said Transport Minister Benny Engelbrecht on January 19.
Is there any collateral reporting in the Danish media?

The Danish transport ministry issued a press release about it a while ago: https://www.trm.dk/nyheder/2020/rege...over-kattegat/

The one thing new compared to the previous government, is that they want to include a rail link again. Previous studies found there was no way the fixed link could be financed through tolls if it included a rail link.

Combining a road and rail bridge doesn't bring that much benefits of scale. They are mostly separate infrastructure, unless it can truly be built on a single bridge structure like the Øresund Bridge. But in case of two parallel crossings, the cost benefit isn't very significant.
