It is cold in Denmark now – and more winter from the east is expected…
Some homepages are “Under construction”. The bridge over the motorway just south of Roskilde is also under construction. Read more two days ago. This is from is southern part of the bridge. I look forward to see how cars get on the bridge!
Many years ago the road from Copenhagen to Ringsted passed through Roskilde. Now part of this street is for pedestrians. The motorway passing Roskilde just south of the city was build to avoid the increasing number of cars passing through the city. For years this motorway has been unable to let the traffic pass smoothly. A widening of the motorway has taken place the last years and should be finished this year. The bridges over the motorway has to be adopted to the new reality. Very often I have passed the bridge at Køgevej in my car thinking I should walk and take some photos of the replacement of two old bridges with two new ones.
The other day I walked to the bridge south of the railstation. It was one of the dark winterdays we have seen very often this winter – and today I show you a few shots from the northern part of the east-bridge (you see traffic passing at the west-bridge).
The new bridge has to be placed carefully.
It has now been lowered to the right place?
It seems to be rather complicated to make such a new bridge…
Yesterday King Frederik IX died 40 years ago. The Queen and the Royal family visted his grave outside Roskilde Cathedral.
Today Margrethe II has been Queen 40 years.
Photos from yesterday will be shown at the blog the next week.
Readers might have noticed that a photo a day at this blog has not been a reality. So has it been, and it can happen again. But – I have been thinking how to solve the problem in 2012. The decision is to have a weekly theme. There are many small villages in Roskilde municipality and it should be possible to make 7 photos if a village is visited.
The theme for week 2 is: Brordrup. Yesterday I was there, seven shots were made – and here is the first one. Brordrup is to the right (the farm that is seen is in Ramsømagle). The cattle enjoy the green danish winter.
Brordrup is a few houses and a few farms 1 kilometre west of Gadstrup. If you want an overview, I have made a photo from the south, take a look at Brordrup.
This stone is standing in Roskilde 30 km from a particular stone in Copenhagen. It is standing 129 meters before the 4 mile-stone at the same street in Roskilde.
Take a look at the mentioned stones here.
This photo is from the archives – the weather is very dark and wet these days in Denmark.
