Køge North Station will not only be a traffic hub for the entire Copenhagen region connecting high-speed trains, local trains and the busiest motorway in Denmark – the Køge Bay Motorway, but also a distinctive landmark in the area. The project consists of a 225 meter long pedestrian bridge, a new train station and an associated park and ride facility.

The north side of the bridge provides a stunning 180 degrees panoramic view over the landscape and traffic lines. Padded with wooden lamellae, the inside of the bridge becomes a warm and welcoming area, while the outside has a more rough expression with perforated steel plates matching the materials of the surrounding infrastructural system.
