Køge Bay Motorway is for commuters, what ristrengøring is for barbecue enthusiasts. Necessary, but often also time-consuming.
It is not uncommon to end up in a long queue on the way to and from work in Copenhagen, and for the same reason, politicians have worked for many years to get some of the many commuters in the trains.
The big, upcoming train station at Køge Nord is part of this ambition, and when, in the dawn of time laid itself firmly on the station's appearance, the easy winner among other with some special information signs.
part of the train station will consist of a 225-meter-long tubular walkway over the Køge Bay Motorway, and the idea was that the signs should be placed on the outside of the 'tube'. From there, they make the motorists on the highway pay attention to how much time they could save to take the train,
But even though the signs were part of the original proposal, they now seem to have been spared. It writes the Engineer.
an extension of the new train station intended to accommodate a large car park, and it was supposed that a monitoring system should send information about the number of p-positions for the signs above the highway. But this information comes to car drivers, after all, to judge also to look far.
It appears by a response from the minister for transport mr Ole Birk Olesen (LA) for Køge Municipality, as the Engineer quote:
- If, in ejerskabskredsen with the DSB and the municipality can't find a viable solution within the technical and economic framework, it is expected, unfortunately, not possible to establish an information display at the Køge North Station, writes to the minister for Køge Municipality.

According to the answer from Ole Birk Olesen is part of the justification for dropping the signs, however, of a technical nature. He writes that it has been a prerequisite for the project, that you could find a 'technically durable solution', and that the Certifications have tried this, but 'so far without success'.
the Announcements from the minister for transport mr Ole Birk Olesen comes after that Køge mayor, Marie Strong (S), has voiced its amazement at the situation in a letter to the Parliamentary transport committee.
- Køge Municipality has a clear expectation that data from this plant (for parking, red.) will be used in a vejvisningsøjemed to inform drivers about improving the collective traffic, she writes, according to the Engineer, and adds:
It is therefore with astonishment that the Køge Municipality has learned that The no longer have the authorization to informationsdisplayprojektet.
In the extension of the Køge Nord Station takes you 650 parking spaces, which according to TV2 Lorry can be expanded up to 2700 seats in the long term. The station should have been opened in december 2018, but the inauguration has so far pushed forward to the middle of 2019.
