EU to co-finance Danish electrification project

Listen to this article

The EU has confirmed that it will offer up €11.5 million to co-finance electrification works on the final section of the Copenhagen-Esbjerg line.

Funding will be delivered as part of the TEN-T project, an EU initiative designed to develop a series of key transport corridors across the continent.

The project will include the installation of electrification and power supply systems along the 57 kilometre double-track line between Esbjerg and Lunderskov.

As well as the electrification work, EU funds will be used to build a new spur line to the Port of Esbjerg.

Work is due to be completed by 2015.
