Construction of the Boulevard Line between Sølvgade and Stokhusgade in 1914

The Boulevard Line (Danish: Boulevardbanen) is a 3.2-kilometer (2.0 mi) long railway line between Copenhagen Central Station and Østerport Station in Copenhagen, Denmark.[1] The quadruple track line carries two tracks of the S-train and two tracks of the mainline railway. It opened in 1917, allowing services on the Coast Line and the Klampenborg Line to extend to Copenhagen Central Station.[2] The line became part of the S-train network on 15 May 1934.[3] The line has two intermediate S-train stations, Vesterport Station and Nørreport Station, although only Nørreport is served by regional trains.
