The Greater Copenhagen region does not have enough sports halls, football pitches or swimming pools relative to its number of residents, according to the government, which wants to allow local authorities to build new facilities.

In a new plan for city development presented on Wednedsay, the government proposed giving the Copenhagen and Frederiksberg municipalities one billion kroner to invest on public sports facilities between 2022 and 2030.

Copenhagen Metro lines reopen after two-week closure

Lines M3 and M4 of the Copenhagen Metro are back in service having reopened on Sunday, one day ahead of schedule.

Copenhagen Metro lines reopen after two-week closure

The two lines had been closed so that the Metro can run test operations before opening five new stations on the M4 line this summer.

The tests, which began on February 10th, are now done and the lines were running again as of Sunday evening, a day ahead of the original planned reopening on Monday February 26th.

“We are very pleased to be able to welcome our passengers on to our two lines M3 and M4,” head of operations with the Metro Søren Boysen said.

“The whole test procedure exceeded all expectations and went faster than expected and we can therefore get a head start on our reopening now,” he said.

Time set aside for potential repeat tests was not needed in the event, allowing the test closures to be completed ahead of time.

“Several of our many tests went better than expected and we have therefore not used all the time we needed for extra tests,” Boysen said.

The two lines serve around one million passengers every week, according to the Metro company.

The M3 and M4 lines, the newer sections of the Metro, opened in 2019 and 2020 respectively.
