Traffic numbers swoop down on the newly opened bridge

The latest traffic numbers from crown Princess Mary's Bridge in Frederikssund shows that the total amount of drivers who daily cross the bridge, has fallen.

It writes TV2 Lorry.

Already in the days after the opening of a month ago, it was clear that the number of motorists on the bridge was far from the Directorate objective of 11.900 crossing motorists per day.

Only 4200 drivers took the day after the opening a trip on the much debated and long-awaited betalingsbro of Roskilde Fjord.

Since then it has only gone downhill for the number of drivers using the new bridge.

In week 40 - the week after the opening - crossed 3702 drivers daily the bridge, while in week 43 was only 2662 drivers, who every day drove over the new fjordforbindelse.

A difference of 1040 drivers.

- The witnesses, after all, that it is almost worse for trafiktallet than we had dared hope for.

- There are not many who choose to pay in order to run across the bridge, says Kenneth Jensen (P), which is a member of the steering committee in the critical organization 'Broafgit-nejtak' and the councillor at Frederikssund Municipality, TV2 Lorry.

While the total traffic on the new bridge falls, it looks different out evenly on the somewhat older crown Prince Frederik's Bridge, which also crosses the fjord.

Here is the expectation that the traffic volume in the long term, will decline, but some suggest that it takes time to take a new bridge to the care of Frederikssund citizens.

While trafiktallet for crown Prince Frederik's Bridge fell in the first two weeks after the opening of the new bridge, went trafiktallet again up in week 43.

the Bridge has been heavily debated, especially because the citizens have to pay to drive across it.

TV2 Lorry has, in addition, among other things, told of how citizens in Frederikssund Municipality can look forward to a ekstraregning on among other things, the emptying of the waste, since the drive for renovationsfirmaet Marius Pedersen A/S has been costly by the betalingsbroen.
