The new metro line Cityringen consists of 17 stations in central Copenhagen. At two stations, Frederiksberg and Kongens Nytorv, you can change to the existing metro lines.

Cityringen is a 15.5 km underground tunnel path, which will connect the Copenhagen Central Station, the Inner City and the areas Østerbro, Nørrebro, Vesterbro and Frederiksberg from July 2019. The new metro line will have 17 underground stations, located down to 35 meters depth.

Throughout the construction period, Metroselskabet expects to create 25,000 full-time equivalents. This corresponds to 1200-1500 jobs directly related to construction and 2,500-3,000 jobs by subcontractors and other services annually.

In connection with the construction of Cityringen, it is decided to build a subway line to the capital's new sustainable city at Nordhavn. The new metro line will ensure that there is efficient public transport to the many people who are expected to settle in the new part of town. The first metro trains to Nordhavn are expected to run in 2019/2020.

Furthermore, in May 2014 the government and the City of Copenhagen agreed on building a new metro line to Sydhavn. The new line will consist of five new stations from Fisketorvet to Ny Ellebjerg Station, which will be a new central hub. The metro line is a central part of the municipality’s plan to develop the Sydhavn area. This new line is expected to open in 2023. At that time, the Greater Copenhagen area will have more than 50 new metro and light rail stations.
