Extending the Metro Network in Copenhagen

Extending the Copenhagen Metro network constitutes part of the Danish capital’s City Ring. Towards this end, two tunnels – 1800 and 1600 m in length – are to be driven one after the other by mechanized means. Furthermore apart from the 80 m long Nordhavn Metro stop a small tunnel will be driven towards the neighbouring, already existing Nordhavn tram line station. The contract was awarded to a JV comprising Hochtief and Züblin; it is planned to hand over the 150 million euro project in 2019.⇥G.B.
