The most important nets of public transport in the area of Copenhagen are the suburban trains (S-trains) and the metro. Due to the construction of the suburban train system, all lines to Copenhagen employ the Boulevard Railway. Because of the intensive utilization of the Boulevard Railway, delays on one rail line are easily spread to other parts of the suburban train system. The local tracks of the Boulevard Railway were of insufficient capacity as early as the 1920ies. Over the years, attempts to solve these capacity problems have been the introduction of suburban trains and new safety systems. As the traffic increased during the years there are, however, still significant problems with lack of capacity of the Boulevard Railway. By extending the suburban train system in the center of Copenhagen it will be possible to offer better service in the city of Copenhagen as well as along the existing suburban lines. This paper describes the presumed effects of an extension of the suburban train system in the central Copenhagen by implementing two new tracks.
