A safe way to cross and enjoy Denmark’s busiest freeway.
The Køge North Station project includes the train station, a park and ride facility and a bridge that offers safe crossing over Denmark’s busiest freeway. The 225-meter-long bridge is the new transportation hotspot of Denmark and works since March 2019 as a gateway for over 90.000 that pass though on a daily basis. It leads to the train station where trains to and from Copenhagen transport over 8.000 people daily.
Due to clear dedicated zones, an area for movement exists, as well as an area to linger around and enjoy the open view. Across the huge windows that let in a great amount of natural light, is a wooden structure with built in seat opportunities to create a calming cozy feeling.
