The Project concerns central parts of the Copenhagen Suburban Mass Transit lines between Copenhagen Central Station and Valby. In connection with the construction of the Køge Bugt line, the northbound track (5th main track) was lead all the way to the platform on Copenhagen Central Station, while the corresponding southbound track (6th main track) was not established.
