Prinsens Bro near Christiansborg Palace in central Copenhagen was originally built in 1682. The existing bridge from 1926 was in such a poor state of repair that saving it would have been an exercise in futility. Now, the bridge to the islet of Slotsholmen has reopened in a new and stronger version. With greater carrying capacity and improved safety, the newly constructed bridge will serve all types of traffic for many years to come.
The City of Copenhagen has initiated a major regeneration project of the infrastructure and parking facilities in central Copenhagen. In this connection, Gottlieb Paludan Architects and SWECO won the project to regenerate Vendersgade together with the intersecting streets, Rømersgade and Linnésgade.
