Delays continue on storm-hit train lines

Normal services in Denmark from next Monday

Normal rail services in Denmark will resume only from next Monday, rail operator DSB admits. This week’s storm made “extensive damage” on the country’s rail network.

“We don’t expect to be able to run according to the timetable for the rest of this week. Twenty-five trains have been damaged and there is also extensive damage to tracks, power installations and stations in many parts of the country,” Tony Bispeskov, DSB’s traffic information manager, told DR News.

“We’re working hard in all the affected areas but the damage is so extensive that we are advising travellers to be patient and leave home earlier if they want to be in a certain place at a certain time. Passengers can check for delays, cancellations and changes on DSB’s website or in the timetable, which is updated regularly.”

Copenhagen’s S-trains are now running at 10-minute intervals, but badly damaged Lyngby Station is still out of action.
