It is indeed, quite much harsher than Helsinki for example. But upper Värmland is like 200-300 m high right?

The Swedish Transport Administration suggests changes in regulation to allow for longer truck/lorry combinations (in Swedish)

The new total length allowed would be 32 meter, up from the current 25,25 meter.

What does this mean? That they have to cut pieces of trailers off? Combinations has always been long in Sweden because they add articulated trailers to existing freight units. But putting the original trailer back onto a tractor unit would reduce the length a lot more than the 7 metres they want to reduce.

I worked with those driving curve programs. You can drive a truck or any kind of combination through your design and see if it fits. But one always need to incorporate some margin of error, as humans are not perfect drivers like a computerized truck.

There are already some 32 m trucks in the logging industry up in the north.

The same combo as in the north is running E6 GBG-Malmö daily, but with box trailers.

Why is there an urban expressway, which seems quite old, in Gällivare?

Yes! Just like Norra Länken in Stockholm! And probably citybanan too! Looks like trafikverket need to work on their schedules

I believe it was originally planned to be completed by fall 2015. Progress was very good. They've built 20 kilometers of motorway, and a large fjord-crossing bridge in 3.5 years.

I guess other motorway projects like closing the gap between Borås and Ulricehamn on R40, outside Ljungby on E4 and building motorway all the way between Göteborg and the border to Norway on E6 have had higher priority. And with the new goverment with Miljöpartiet (environment party) in place motorway projects will get low or none funding. So the outlook for new safe and fast roads are bad in Sweden the coming four years.

yes you are right about e6,e4 and R40, but the upcoming years doesn't look bright. There are some motorways projects but most of them are very short. I think the problem is bypass Stockholm which take to much money from the budget. With 30 billions can you complete e20, e18 r40 and parts of e4 which would make more sense.

All this is very interesting with the new coalition (hope it will not last long).

But; nobody answered my question:
Why is there an urban expressway in Gällivare?

Bypass Stockholm is funded with money from the congestion tax in Stockholm so it´s political suicide to invest those money on roads outside Stockholm.

The coming years could be bright if the new government dont change the road plans made by the last government. Then the E22 will get motorway all the way through Skåne and Blekinge (except for some short 2+1 streches), the E20 between Stockholm and Gothenburg will get motorway (except for a couple of 2+1 streches), Motala - E20 will get 2+1, the E4 between Söderhamn and Haparande will get motorway or 2+1 all the way and road 61 from Karlstad to the Norwegian border will get 2+1.

Probably due to urban planning in the 1960s and 70s. Just take a look at Karlskoga, which has a massive road network.
