|:||Køge Nord Station is not only a traffic hub for the entire Copenhagen region, connecting high-speed trains, local trains and the busiest motorway in Denmark; it is also a distinctive landmark for green mobility. The project consists of a 225-meter-long footbridge, a train station and an associated park-and-ride facility. The north side of the bridge provides a stunning 180-degree panoramic view of the landscape and traffic lines. Clad with wooden slats, the inside of the bridge becomes a warm and welcoming space, while the outside has a rougher expression with aluminium plates matching the materials of the surrounding infrastructural system. Hovering above the motorway, the pedestrian bridge serves as a visual invitation to thousands of people commuting by car to choose the more sustainable option of parking the car at the station and taking the train, thus saving both time and money and reducing their carbon footprint.|
