New bridge opens for bikers and pedestrians in Copenhagen

Lille Langebro

@Realdaniadk

I don’t follow the urban developments of Copenhagen so I’m always more than a little surprised to be riding along an old route and find new things, especially bridges in a city this old. Three years ago I was shocked to see a new bike/pedestrian bridge linking Nyhavn with the other side of the harbor. I’ve since crossed that bridge too many times to count.

This past Sunday I was out and about and noticed this bridge (Lille Langebro) about to open. Today I looked it up (July 2, 2019) to see when it is supposed to open, and it turns out it did open–today! The original schedule was for it to open in August. Imagine completing a construction project ahead of time. I haven’t experienced that in the USA.

The city didn’t even have to pay for Lille Langebro. The owner of the black building on the far left of today’s photo paid for the bridge. The bridge is a drawbridge, but not in the classical sense. As you can see, the parts don’t go up. Instead, they swing out to let larger ships through. The process takes just two minutes.
