Now the drilling begins below The Meatpacking District

Copenhagen's large cloudburst tunnel is now ready to drill its way to the harbour.

Hofor is now ready to drill the tunnel that will go from the lakes to Kalvebod Brygge.

The drilling machine, named Signe, has arrived at the construction site by the lakes and is expected to have drilled its way to Halmtorvet around May 2023. Only then will the drilling of the last section down to Kalvebod Brygge begin. The drilling of this section takes place partly under The Meatpacking District.
