Carlsberg Station opens05.07.2016
The new station is expected to get 24,000 daily users.
Carlsberg Station that opened last Sunday replaces the smaller Enghave Station and will be a transport hub for outer Vesterbro and the new Carlsberg City. The station is located where the Carlsberg Breweryhad its own freight station, 'Station Hof', from 1937 to 1985, and when the new urban area is completed, it is expected to be the fifth busiest station in the capital with 24,000 daily users.
The station was inaugurated with a special train and declared open by the Minister of Transport Hans Christian Schmidt and CEO of DSB (The Danish State Railways) Flemming Jensen who cut the ribbon.
Carlsberg Station is part of the development of the entire Carlsberg City and the station will ensure a good and sustainable infrastructure in the new district. The area around the station includes a 100-metre high residential tower, Bohr Tower, UCC's new campus and retail units.
The site of the new station incorporates a large cantilevered terrace area which articulates the connection between the public urban spaces. The terraces provide space for bicycle parking, while stairs and lifts from the terraces give access to the platforms. In addition to the three stairways from the station forecourt, there is access to the new station via Vesterfælledvej at South Boulevard.
Gottlieb Paludan Architects was in charge of the design of the station and forecourt, created in collaboration with SWECO, Atkins DK and Aarsleff Rail.
The client was the development company Carlsberg Byen P/S. DSB and BaneDanmark are responsible for the daily operation of the station.
