2015 will see construction work on the upcoming city circle metro line Cityringen, which opens with 17 new stations in 2018, affecting traffic and the view in several places in the Danish capital. In return, Copenhagen will be able to present one of the world's best and most effective metros once the work is finished.

Copenhagen’s new city circle metro line Cityringen will consist of 17 stations located in a circle in the centre of Copenhagen. At two of the stations, Frederiksberg and Kongens Nytorv, you will be able to change to the existing metro lines. Cityringen is scheduled for completion in 2018, and in short, you will be able to take the metro anywhere in the Danish capital. But until then, it is not going to be a sight for sore eyes.

The metro construction is in full swing and will continue in the years to come, at 21 construction sites in Copenhagen. In addition, three sites have been added to construct the new Nordhavn line, which is scheduled for completion in 2019. Moreover, it is expected that from 2017-2022 construction will begin on a new Sydhavn Line.
