COBE  were celebrating groundbreaking of Køge North Station – a new distinctive landmark for green mobility in the capital region of Copenhagen. The project consists of a 225-meter long pedestrian bridge, a new train station and an associated park and ride facility and will be a new gateway to Copenhagen for the 90.000 people passing through the area daily. Køge North Station is expected to be in use by the end of 2018.

Køge North Station will not only be a traffic hub for the entire Copenhagen region connecting high-speed trains, local trains and the busiest motorway in Denmark – the Køge Bay Motorway, but also a distinctive landmark in the area. . The north side of the bridge provides a stunning 180 degrees panoramic view over the landscape and traffic lines. Padded with wooden lamellae, the inside of the bridge becomes a warm and welcoming area, while the outside has a more rough expression with perforated steel plates matching the materials of the surrounding infrastructual system.

 

When a new railway line to Copenhagen opens in 2018, it will not only be the first step towards far better railwayconnections to the Danish capital, but will also mark the beginning of a new and much better connected Øresund region.Køge North Station will be the only completely new station along the route – built above the busiest motorway inDenmark – the Køge Bay Motorway.
