Large infrastructure investments in Denmark

The parties in the Danish parliament have agreed to invest around EUR 22 billion in the country’s infrastructure between now and 2035; the biggest Danish infrastructure plan ever.

The overarching objective is to create even stronger links between the different areas of Denmark while at the same time reducing congestion on the roads, without compromising on the ongoing green transition.

Apart from significant investments in public transport, the road network is to be enhanced – a total of approx. EUR 9 billion is being earmarked for the construction and expansion of the roads of the future.

This sum of money will be used to finance, among other things, nine motorway projects, including a section over the Limfjord fjord to the west of Aalborg in North Jutland. In contrast to previous Danish infrastructure initiatives, the new plan is carbon neutral.
