Commuters are advised to anticipate longer journey times with the bus alternative.

Copenhagen Metro is set to temporarily halt services on its M3 Cityring line and M4 line from Saturday, February 10th, until February 26th.

This closure is part of preparations for the launch of five new stations on the M4 line later this summer.

The upcoming test operations are mandated by law for the new stations, which will utilize the same driverless systems as the existing shared M3 and M4 line stations.

The closures, originally announced last month, will affect approximately one million weekly passengers. While the older M1 and M2 lines will continue normal operations, buses will substitute for the closed sections.

However, commuters are advised to anticipate longer journey times with the bus alternative.

The new M4 line stops will be situated south of central Copenhagen in the Valby and Sydhavn areas, with names including Haveholmen, Enghave Brygge, Sluseholmen, Mozarts Plads, and København Syd (Copenhagen South).

The M3 and M4 lines, inaugurated in 2019 and 2020 respectively, have significantly contributed to the city’s transportation infrastructure
