The Copenhagen Metro’s M1 and M2 lines resumed operations at 5 am on Friday following closure due to heavy rainfall. The lines were shut down between Nørreport and Christianshavn due to around 20cm of water on the tracks.

Jette Clausen, a communications consultant at Metro Service responsible for maintaining the lines, stated that the cause of the flooding remains unknown. Engineers are uncertain why such a large amount of water entered the tracks and anticipate clarity on the matter in the following week.

Martin Kjærsgaard, a representative from the city’s emergency services, mentioned utilizing suction pumps to remove hundreds of thousands of liters of water into the sea.
