Metro expansion

Copenhagen is getting 24 new metro stations

In collaboration with the municipal authorities of Copenhagen and Frederiksberg, the Danish government has concluded a contract to expand the existing metro with a new city circle line, Cityringen.

Cityringen is a completely new metro line constructed on the same principles as the existing Copenhagen metro net. Cityringen will be a 15.5 km underground railway under downtown Copenhagen, the "bridge quarters" and Frederiksberg. The circle line will have 17 underground stations and opens in July 2019.

In the end of 2019 the two stations of the Nordhavn extension will be linked to Cityringen - trains operating in the beginning of 2020. I 2023 the Sydhavn extension and its five extra metro stations will also be a part of the Copenhagen metro network.

New stations
The fundamental qualities of the present Metro will be carried over into the new stations. But there will be more variation between the Cityringen stations compared to the existing ones.
