After 3 years delay and after 5 years under construction walk- and bike bridge “Inderhavnsbroen” between Nyhavn and Christianshavn was opened thursday the 7. july 2016 at 6 PM to the public.

Thousands of danes and visitors have “invaded” the new walk- and bike bridge the last 3 days to enjoy its function and the splendid view from the bridge to the beauty of Copenhagen Inner Harbour.

On saturday 9. july 2016 I drove  60 km from my home in North Sealand to Copenhagen to visit and “invade” the new bridge.

The 180 meter long “Inderhavnsbroen” is one of three new bike-and walk bridges, which connects Copenhagen City in Nyhavn with the quarters Christianshavn, Amager and Holmen on the opposite side of Copenhagen Inner Harbour.

The two other walk-and bike bridges are “Trangravsbroen” (between Christianshavn and Arsenaløen)  and “Proviantbroen” (between Arsenaløen and Frederiksholm) and were opened for the public in 2014.

 

The 3 new walk-and bike bridges are a main crossing route of Copenhagen Inner Harbour of two major bike-, run-  and walk routes:

Christianhavnsruten from Copenhagen City and quarters Vesterbro, Frederiksberg, Nørrebro and Østerbro via Nyhavn/Havnegade to Grønlandske Handels Plads på Christianshavn, Freetown Christiania, Kløvermarken, Island Amager and Amager Beach to Kastrup Airport (north/south route) and

Havneringen – 13 km long bike-, run- and walk route on north- and south side of Copenhagen Inner Harbour from east to west at “Sluseholmen” and back (See locations on map) and havneringen.dk .You can choose  four  “circle routes” – lengths 2, 4, 7 and 13 km passing 4 bridges: Cirkelbroen, Bryggebroen,  Slusen and Inderhavnsbroen.

The new 180 m long walk- and bike bridge  “Innerhavnsbroen” is constructed as a “glide bridge”: the two moving components each 24 m long slides to connect and disconnect from opposite of the foundations.  It creates an open space of 15 meter width for passing of sailing- and motor boats.

This “Glide Bridge” is a new, unique and creative construction, which has been used here in Copenhagen for the first time in Europe:

The new 180 m long “Inderhavnsbroen” has a new unique construction. Its a “glide bridge” where the 2 inner moving components each 24 meter long slides to connect and disconnect from the 2 stationary foundations of the bridge for passing sailing- and motor boats. In middle of photo the moving (gliding) part of the bridge. When the bridge open for passing ships this inner section glides (moves) in direction to front of the photo.

What a gift to all danes and foreign visitors to Copenhagen!

Congratulations!

Thanks for all 3 new walk- and bike bridges: Inderhavnsbroen, Trangravsbroen and Proviantbroen.

It was worth waiting 3 delays years for a perfect finish of a VERY difficult and complex construction (Glide Bridge) of this splendid walk- and bike bridge – its beauty, its elegance and its sustainability!

On my homepage Danculture.dk I have written 2 articles about the above 3 walk-and bike bridges in Copenhagen Inner Harbour:

 

 Copenhagen autumn 2015 – visit Nyhavn Canal and Inner Harbour with 3 new walk-and bike bridges

Visit Copenhagen Inner Harbour, Christianshavn Canal and the places for construction of 3 walk- and bike bridges

In 2015 three walk- and bike bridges will connect Copenhagen Inner Harbour, Nyhavn and Copenhagen City with Christianshavn, Holmen with its Opera, Film- Music-, Theatre- and Architecture Schools, Naval Base Copenhagen and residental and business areas.

I 2015 vil 3 gang- og cykelbroer forbinde Københavns Inderhavn, Nyhavn og København City med Christianshavn, Holmens Opera med Film-, Teater-, Musik- og Arkitektskolen, Marinestation København samt boliger og forretninger.

Lidt faktuelle oplysninger – copy from my article of 12. october 2012 on my homepage Erik K Abrahamsen Blog:

3 nye gang- og cykelbroer binder Christianshavn sammen med Nyhavn og Holmen

Copy start:

Inderhavnsbroen, længde 180 m fra Nyhavn til Nordatlantens Brygge (Grønlandske Handels Plads) på Christianshavn:

Arkitekt: Studio Bednarski Limited

Ingeniører: Flint & Neill Limited,

Hardesty & Hanover International LLC,

COWI

Trangravsbroen og Proviantbroen:

Arkitekt: DFA Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes PARIS WIEN
Ingeniører: WTM International ENGENIEERS,
COWI
Alle 3 broer, Inderhavnsbroen, Trangravsbroen og Proviantbroen:
Entrepenør: E. Pihl og Søn A/S
Financiering: Gavedonation fra A.P. Møller Fonden: 216 mill. kr. incl. gavemoms + København Kommune: 37,5 mill. kr.

SIDSTE, marts 2014:

Entreprenøren E. Pihl & Søn gik konkurs august 2013. Det betyder, at færdiggørelsen af alle 3 broer er forsinket på ubestemt tid. Det er Københavns Kommune som har ansvaret for færdiggørelse af alle 3 broer og kommunen er pt i forhandlinger med entreprenører, som har nødvendig kompetence til at færdiggøre de 3 relativt komplicerede klap- og skydebroer.

Allersidste, september 2014:

København Kommune har indgået kontrakter med 2 entrepenørfimaer omkring færdiggørelse af Inderhavnsbroen, Trangravsbroen og Proviantbroen. Alle 3 gang- og cykelbroer er planlagt færdigbyggede i begyndelsen af 2015.

Copy finish.

The 3 years delay of the construction of glide bridge “Inderhavnsbroen” has expanded the cost of all 3 bike- and walk bridges (built 2011-16):
 Gift donation from A.P. Møller Fonden: 241 mill. kr. incl. gavemoms + København Kommune: 107 mill. kr. = Total cost   348 mill. kr.

 

 

Enjoy life- be happy!
