new routes into the city from the harbour

BLOX will be the new home of the Danish Architecture Centre and work on the building is moving forward but the roads to the building from the city centre have already been remodelled.

On the east side the road alongside the canal was resurfaced this summer. Most spaces for parking cars have been removed and the wide area cobbled and trees planted to create a very pleasant route for pedestrians that links BLOX to Marmorbroen - the Marble Bridge to Christiansborg - and to Nationalmuseet - the National Museum or, from there, on to Gammel Strand or on further to Gammeltorv and Vor Frue Kirke.

Vester Voldgade to the west now has a wide bike lane and attractive new hard landscaping and planting of trees. Aligned with the new bicycle and pedestrian bridge over the harbour it will link BLOX to City Hall Square.
