Arup consortium wins Copenhagen Cityringen metro bid

A consortium of Arup, Systra and Cowi have won the bit to construct the Metro City Ring line, or Cityringen, in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The Ørestad Development Corporation made the appointment, Arup acting as consulting engineers for the new 16km lines.

The driverless system will have 17 underground stations and a depot. The route will form a ring around the centre of Copenhagen.

Once complete, around 85% of all homes, workplaces and institutions of higher education will be located within 600 metres of a Metro station or an S-train station.

This will, in most cases, mean a walk of less than 10 minutes to the nearest station.

Arup's director and global rail leader Colin Stewart sais, "The existing Copenhagen Metro is a modern driverless metro system, and a great asset to the city. Arup is very pleased to have been selected as best bidder to develop and implement this major new line."
