Reply To: Dublin’s minimal Metro plans stalled.
According to the site the cost for the entire system will indeed be 10.8 billion DKK (1.45 billion euro) – they’re 2001 prices. It’s being funded through a Danish version of the PPP, a Public-Public Partnership between Copenhagen City (55 %) and the State (45 %).
The construction is financed by loans that will be paid back in 25-30 years.
The system will have 24 stations when completed. The first phase has taken 6 years to complete and the whole system won’t be ready until 2007.
