Work is moving forward to complete the new City Ring of the metro in Copenhagen. One of the main new interchanges with the existing metro lines will be at Kongens Nytorv and there, after six years of being fenced off, the high green hoardings that have kept traffic and people to the fringes of the square are coming down. For now there are wire fences around the works but already the square seems larger and more open.
The next stage at ground level will be replanting all the trees and the reinstatement of the stone paving.
The equestrian statue of Christian V has been at the centre of the square since 1688 and remained there through all the works.
