Is there some article or source about this?

AADT might also be a reason why they're lowering the speed limit on these stretches. However, I think the lowerings themselves will have at best marginal effects in practise.

Noticed today that Trafikverket are installing new lightning on E18 further outside Stockholm. The new lightning will stretch as far as Bro (exit 148 road 269). I haven't been able to find any information as to why they are doing that.

Regarding the new lower speed limits on E4 and E18 in the Stockholm region - well that is what you get for voting green/socialists into power. Fools!

E22 Kalmar - Karlskrona

Some photos of E22 in southeastern Sweden which I took in June. From Kalmar to Karlskrona. It's partially 2+1 and partially conventional carriageway.

The very northernmost part between Pukavik and Mörrum West has been opened since then indeed.

Do you have a good source on the opening? I can't find much through Google News.se or Trafikverket website.

110 km/h, the road is built with a "budget" width of 19,5 metres where the main lane is 3,5 metres and the overtaking lane is 3,25 metres. I can live with it though, way better than the old road.

New elections in Sweden? The current government was installed exactly 2 months ago, but it is a minority government (only 38% of votes and 40% of seats) and failed to get a majority for the 2015 budget.

Yes. It seems to me that it is politically incorrect to ignore a party having 14% of the seats because of its politically incorrect agenda.

Swedes are good on discussing things but they seem to panic if someone deviates from canonical correct opinions.

Yes there is political chaos today in Sweden because of the ruling left-environment mafia can not sit down at the round table and talk with Sweden's third largest party as adults. But they do sit and point the finger at this party and their voters and saying that we think wrong about things. SIGH.

A vital infrastructure Project called "Bypass Stockholm" has already started in May this year was stopped as soon environment Muppets with their lackeys came to power in rosenbad. Stockholm has growing pains and all the capitals in the majority of countries have some form of highway that goes outside the city, exept Stockholm.

Bypass Stockholm is this kind of important projects that are crucial to our capital's future. Just look at the newly opened Northern Link, Traffic flowes on, no red lights, No quees. No problems for the motorists to drive from A to B. It went like clockwork.

This Project is a stand still today and it costs the taxpayer 4 million Swedish Crowns per day. Our bad new Prime minister Löfven /Romsom mafia does not care for they are crooks.

If they already have started to build this road project, it is utterly counterproductive and incomprehensible that it's possible stop it due to a political decision.

Some of the initial constructions of this project already have been dismantled and demolished.

If the rightwing parties come to power, the same things have to be rebuilt again, which is a waste of taxpayers money.
