The so-called road marking case concerns the question whether the two undertakings LKF Vejmarkering (now GVCO) and Eurostar Danmark infringed upon the Danish Competition Act when they formed Dansk Vejmarkerings Konsortium (Danish Road Marking Consortium) and submitted a joint bid on a project from the Danish Road Directorate.

In February 2014, the Danish Road Directorate called for tenders regarding road marking in three districts of Denmark respectively South Denmark, Zealand and the Capital area. The tender concerned the years 2014 – 2017.

At the time, LKF Vejmarkering and Eurostar Danmark were among the largest contractors within road marking in Denmark. The consortium submitted separate bids for each of the three districts, as well as a bid for the whole project.
