Copenhagen Cityringen Metro

Name of Project:

Copenhagen Cityringen Metro


Metroselskabet I/S

Total value:
€ 2,147 million

Start of works:
January 2011

Expected duration:
96 months

Copenhagen has one of the most advanced and cohesive public transport systems in Europe.

The Cityringen project will form a new circular line in the city centre and will consist of two 17.4km tunnels and 17 new stations (two of which are transfer stations) all at 30 metres below ground level. From a technical point of view the project is extremely complex, since the city is at sea level. Tunnel excavation is by TBM. A cut and cover service tunnel is also foreseen for the connection to the operation and maintenance centre.

The fully automated driverless metro system will operate 24 hours a day, with a minimum frequency of 100 seconds, guaranteeing efficient mobility for 130 million metro passengers a year.

For Copenhagen this new metro line will mean a rapid, safe and environmentally sensible means of transportation.

Total length: 17.4 km
Stations: 17
Tunnels: 15 km each (TBM EPB Ø 6 m)
Average depth: 30 m
