Correctly observed, colons are not used for abbreviations in Norwegian or Danish. Written Danish and Norwegian are closely related due to their historic origins. Spoken Norwegian has in general more in common with Swedish, though, partly due to accelerating degeneration of spoken Danish

On the E 4, Helsingborg is signed.
Same story in Norway. Eg, E6 is not the best route between Oslo and Trondheim, although this is the singposted route.

Not really testing anymore, but used on some stretches with low AADT and good motorway standard. The ones I know of are the E4 Gränna-Linköping, the quite new E4 near Uppsala and the E6 in Halland.

I asked trafikverket about this some time ago, they could theoretically allow 120km/h on more stretches, but the law does not allow any measures increasing CO2 emmisions. Any raised section has to be compensated with speed reduction elsewhere, so trafikverket does what it can to make sure an acceptibly high speed limit can be granted everywhere.

I wonder why they create low-flow brake and accelerate environments in built up areas, masses of right-hand-rule crossings or non-synchronized trafficlights that could easily be get rid of. No answer to that though.

My car has a 6l/100km average in Swedish traffic environment compared to 5l/100km in Czech traffic environment. Sweden is flat as a pancake compared to the hilly Czech republic.

Is that between Lidköping and Falköping? That road is also wide as hell :P

It's the old E4 between Linköping and Norrköping, here specifically.

As I understand it, yes to everything. Except possibly which part is the major part. If one counts the part with the most traffic as the major part I'd assume that the part west of Norrtull would be the major part. But otoh, the part you describe as the major part is the point of the whole project really and makes up by far the majority of the tunnel length, so I'd day Yes to that too

This is the unmarked secondary county road E796.

Quite a lot of trucks and commuters on the section Linghem-Linköping on that road. Most motorists driving from Söderköping also choose this road in favor of the E4 motorway. Why not rename the E796 to countyroad 210 all the way Linköping-Söderköping ?



For some reason the old E4 west of Linköping was made in to a 100km/h 2+1 road with barriers, improving the conditions for the comuters from Vikingstad. Could be an option for the E796 in the future as well.

I agree, they should do that. It also makes it easier to find Tallboda, Linghem, and Gistad being along a signed stretch.

I disagree with that, unless they build a bike path all the way from Tallboda to Gistad. The wide shoulder is excellent for bikers, and there aren't really any alternative routes. Going to Vikingstad there's Bankebergsvägen at least.

Yes and there is a bikepath Vikingstad - Sjögestad along the E636 as well.

This tunnel is from 1981. First they had a plan to cut of the rock, but later they understood it was better to just make a tunnel

New R40 Ulricehamn

Sorry for bad quality, Photo is taken by mobile.

It looks like they have finished first part of the bridge.

E6 Ödsmålsbron

Ödsmålsbron is a 386 meter long and 48 meter tall bridge across a valley near Stenungsund, approximately 50 kilometers north of Göteborg. It was completed in 1991. There is a rest area on the northbound side with a viewing point.

A tip to all the roadtrippers in Sweden. Stop by at "Custon" road café in Tjörnarp along the road 23 in south Sweden. An old fashioned place with a pleasant welcoming feel. Not like the dull McD/Burger King at the modern rest areas along the E4.



Here they provide burgers, a small vintage collection exhibition and you can play pinball for 1SEK !

I drove from Trelleborg to Linköping yesterday. Distance 450km. I could have driven efficiently on the E6/E4 all the way, but I drove E6>E22 to Lund and then the road 23 Höör-Hässleholm, road 117 to Markaryd and the on the E4 the rest of the way.

The government has rejected the appeals for the new E22 around Linderöd, source: http://www.kristianstadsbladet.se/kr...-Linderod.html

The decision came way faster than expected. Location of the planned bypass: http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=14/55.9275/13.8243
