|Location Map ( geo)|
Roads in Denmark are broadly categorised into primary roads (Primærruter), which are signed with the road number shown in black inside a yellow rectangular cartouche, and secondary roads (Sekundærruter), where the road number is shown in red within a white rectangular cartouche. Where one road leads to another, the cartouche has a dashed boundary.
Ring roads are indicated by the letter 'O' and, where there are concentric rings they are labelled 'O2', 'O3', etc.
Denmark has a network of motorways with a pattern that reflects the layout of the country, the high population concentration in Copenhagen, and the country's links with itsneighbours.
Motorways take either the number of the primary route, or the Euroroute concerned (in the latter case only the Euroroute number is shown).
Major bridges are tolled; however, in general there is no direct charge for use of the motorway network.
