Road work planned for key Copenhagen roads in 2021

About 200 million kroner has been earmarked for the renovation of 17 roads, including Bredgade, Østerbrogade and Jagtvej

The city has set aside around 200 million kroner to give 17 streets a much-needed facelift in 2021.

Among the roads to see road work are the key routes of Østerbrogade, Jægersborggade, Bredgade and Jagtvej.

When completed, residents along the stretches will see fewer holes in cycle paths and pavements, as well as less noise from traffic due to the use of noise-reducing asphalt.

City Hall is aware that it is far from optimal that the renovation comes at a difficult time for shops along the stretches, given the COVID-19 restrictions.

“We will work as well as possible to ensure that the road work will have as little disruption as possible, and we will continuously be in close contact with owners. But unfortunately, it can not be avoided that the road work will have an impact,” said Jane Snog, a City Hall spokesperson.

The good news, according to City Hall, is that with so many people working from home due to the pandemic, the disruption will be less than normal.
