Cityringen: an architectural vision for Copenhagen’s next generation metro
Copenhagen is one of the most densely populated areas of Denmark. The new City Circle Line (Cityringen) metro, expands the city’s existing system, and is a key part of its drive to become carbon neutral by 2025. Metroselskabet, Copenhagen’s transit authority, appointed Arup in joint venture with Cowi and Systra to act as the multi-disciplinary technical advisor for this ambitious design and build project, the city’s largest construction project in more than 400 years.
Meet our people
In my role in Arup, I get the chance to be involved in a great variety of projects within my key discipline. Arup is truly a multidisciplinary firm, where engineers from various disciplines come together to come up with solutions for projects.
Seeing this project so well received and making people proud is a great feeling, and looking at the finished stations, there has not been much change in the design, which proves we provided a robust delivery.
