Vejle mayor banks in the table.
After the vejle fjord bridge was closed for several hours Friday as a result of a traffic accident, requires the mayor Jens Ejner Christensen, that something is done to alleviate the city's traffic problems. He calls the situation too chaotic, for when the vejle fjord bridge, running the dense traffic through the town.
specifically, is it a harbour tunnel, there must be Vejle savior.
- Havneruten and havnetunnelen is the key to solve it here. It will increase the capacity tremendously, and we can simultaneously bring down a roundabout and two-three sets of traffic lights, he says to We.
the vejle fjord bridge is both a state road and a Europavej, and, therefore, believes the mayor, to the current state of affairs is too bad.
- We close completely the country from north to south. So I think that it would be very reasonable for the state to relate to the problem. Every time there is an incident on the vejle fjord bridge it adds to the pressure. It is a necessary investment, he says.
In the government and the Danish people's new proposals on infrastructure is Vejle vejpine mentioned, but only with a view to the Danish road directorate must engage in a dialogue with the municipality about what it could be.
Havneruten, as Vejle municipality presents in their mobility plan for 2018-2030, is estimated to cost about 424 million dollars. Besides the harbour tunnel, there must also be extended from two to four tracks between Horsensvej and Ibæk Strandvej/Fredericiavej.
the Mayor believes, however, that the staggering amount of money will be well spent, in that havneruten is 'the key to solving the problem.'
He hopes to be able to take hold of the politicians after the elections, in order to find co-financing from the state for the upcoming havnerute.
