Historic Børsen Building Scaffolding Removal Marks Milestone in Copenhagen

After an intense period of renovation work and an unexpected fire, it now seems that the scaffolding around the historic Børsen building in Copenhagen can finally be removed. This step marks an important milestone in the rebuilding of the area and the reopening of Knippelsbro, which has been closed to traffic. Jakob Vedsted Andersen, Director of the Capital Region Emergency Services, announced at a press briefing on Saturday afternoon that work to remove the scaffolding will begin today. “Trucks with empty containers will arrive, and the contractors will start the process of cutting down the scaffolding and placing it in the containers,” explained Andersen.

Knippelsbro, a vital traffic artery in Copenhagen, has been closed since the fire broke out early Tuesday morning, causing significant traffic challenges. The bridge has temporarily served as a construction road during the renovation work. However, there is hope on the horizon for the many commuters and residents in the area. “As soon as our engineers approve the structural integrity of the bridge, we will work with the police to reopen the bridge. The goal is to have it open before rush hour on Monday morning,” added Andersen.

This development comes as a relief to many who have been affected by the traffic challenges and the visual change in the cityscape that the scaffolding has brought. The reopening of Knippelsbro and the removal of the scaffolding will not only ease traffic but also restore a more normal urban environment in central Copenhagen.
