The railway never sleeps
We are responsible for the Danish railway
Banedanmark is a governmental body under the Ministry of Transport. We keep the trains on track 24 hours a day, all year round. We make sure the tracks, signals and safety systems are properly maintained, renovate the network and build new lines. We monitor rail traffic and steer trains in and out of stations and across the entire rail network.
Banedanmark is responsible for 3,102 km of railway tracks. Over 3,000 trains run on the rail network every day. On a daily basis, we are responsible for 40,000 arrivals and departures at stations all over Denmark. More than 196 million passengers and 8 million tons freight are transported annually on our network.
Banedanmark has a staff of 2,300, with offices all over Denmark and headquarters in Copenhagen.
