New station for a new district
Carlsberg Station is part of the new district Carlsberg Byen in Copenhagen. The station is one of the capital’s busiest stations and replaces Enghave Station.
The project includes the establishment of a new station located west of Vesterfælledvej in Carlsberg Byen’s south-east corner, close to educational institutions and housing. Decommissioning and removal of Enghave S-train station after commissioning of Carlsberg Station was also covered by the project.

Design of the station
The station was built while the railway was in operation and was therefore carried out in stages. Some work was carried out in track closures, and night, weekend and week closures were necessary. In order to achieve an optimal interplay between a rational execution and minor inconveniences for track operation, the constructions were carried out in a combination of prefabricated and in-situ cast elements that satisfied the aesthetic and operational and maintenance requirements and wishes.
The station is laid out with an island platform, with the westbound S-train track being pulled aside to make room for the platform. The station’s forecourt consists of two cantilevered bridge decks, which extend over the northern S-train track and create access via stairs, elevator and escalator to the Ø platform. Bicycle parking, information, lighting etc. have been established on the station’s forecourt.
The station consists of access by stairs partly at the current Vesterfælledvej bridge, partly at a new road bridge between Vigerslev Allé and Carlsberg Byen. A technical room has been established on the platform for information systems, technical installations and cleaning etc.
12,000 travelers a day
It is expected that the new S-train station, upon full expansion of Carlsberg Byen’s areas, will have around 12,000 departing passengers per year. Day. This makes the station one of the busiest S-train stations after Nørreport Station and Copenhagen Central Station. It is further expected that the station will function as a traffic terminal for S-trains and buses, with switching between S-trains and a number of A-buses and local buses.
The station project has been completed in accordance with the agreement between the Ministry of Transport and Carlsberg Byen P/S.
