The police warn motorists: Indre By is congested. Look for other ways


There are many who have taken the car to Copenhagen on Saturday afternoon, when the capital lays asphalt for Copenhagen Pride.

This causes problems, especially around HC Andersens Boulevard and Åboulevarden, which are closed.

“It causes a relatively heavy accumulation of traffic right now, we have to say that”, says deputy police inspector Jesper Bangsgaard, Copenhagen Police.

“Motorists are looking for other routes, but it is difficult to get past the Pride route. It’s a relatively large detour you have to go on,’ he says.

Therefore, the best advice is not to take the car if you are going into town on Saturday afternoon.

»Search outside. If you are going to Amager, take the motorway ring road. It is clearly the easiest. Otherwise, you risk sitting in a queue”, says Jesper Bangsgaard.

However, the problems are expected to be gradually resolved when the closures of the Pride route are lifted in the late afternoon.

Organizers of Copenhagen Pride estimate that up to 50,000 people will be part of the parade from Frederiksberg Town Hall to Town Hall Square in Copenhagen on Saturday.

According to the organizers, up to 250,000 people will attend the festivities.

The police do not have an idea of ​​how many people will be in and around the parade on Saturday afternoon.

“But there are quite a lot of people. And as more parts of the parade enter Rådhuspladsen, it gets more and more full”, says Jesper Bangsgaard.

On Sunday, the triathletes come

Also on Sunday, there is a risk of traffic jams on the roads in and around Copenhagen in connection with the running of Ironman Copenhagen.

Up to 200,000 spectators are expected in the capital to see triathletes swim, cycle and run through the city.

It will inevitably affect traffic, according to head of department Søren Carlsen Kjemtrup, Road Directorate.

“It will undoubtedly affect traffic both in and around Copenhagen.

“We have tried it before, and it should probably proceed without major problems if you as a road user pay attention and orient yourself on trafikinfo.dk, DR P4 Trafik and follow the Road Directorate’s advice,” he says in a press release.
