Copenhagen Metro opens new extension

7 December 2007  •  Author(s): Torben Johansen, Technical Director, Ørestad Development Corporation

A new stretch of the Copenhagen Metro has been opened by HRH Crown Prince Frederik. The new addition is a boon to foreign tourists, business travellers and most of all, the employees of Denmark’s largest workplace; Copenhagen Airport. It is now possible to travel from the airport to the city centre (Kgs. Nytorv) in just 13 minutes.

After years of preparation, the opening date – 28 September – was a full month ahead of schedule. The new stretch has already been integrated into overall Metro operations without any negative effect on reliability, which in the first six months of 2007 was 98.5 per cent.
