Ny Ellebjerg will become Denmark's next big transport hub29.10.2020
In the future, Ny Ellebjerg Station will become the second largest transport hub in Copenhagen, Denmark. Gottlieb Paludan Architects and Rambøll have won the task of establishing connections between the existing and future train and metro lines and creating a well-functioning central hub.
Today, many different means of transport cross their tracks at Ny Ellebjerg Station and in the future, many more will be added. Ny Ellebjerg will be the terminus station for the Sydhavnsmetro in 2024 and, in addition, there will be transfer options for S-trains, Regional trains, long-distance trains, Øresund trains, buses and perhaps even a future light rail.
Gottlieb Paludan Architects and Rambøll will be responsible for establishing a center at Ny Ellebjerg Station in the form of a joint underground concourse hall that connects the individual lines and provides safe and fast travel options. The project will help to create an even stronger public transport network that will reduce congestion and increase mobility in Copengagen. After the transformation, it is expected that Ny Ellebjerg will be used by approx. 60,000 passengers every day and will thus ease traffic at Copenhagen Central Station.
In step with the transformation to a traffic hub, the area around Ny Ellebjerg is undergoing hefty urban development. Gottlieb Paludan Architects has previously developed a master plan for the future urban development around the station, where passenger and traffic flows are integrated into an ambitious plan for good and safe access to, from and between the districts in the area near the station.
Gottlieb Paludan Architects has also contributed with studies in connection with the urban integration of the new Sydhavnsmetro and has designed the five upcoming metro stations.
