You can not call Highway 55 for a bypass of Stockholm as it is closer to 100 kilometers outside and also in another county from Stockholm so it was a lame argument and Gothenburg are no capital as I was talking about.

You're missing the point, non-Stockholm-bound traffic has an alternate route while in western Sweden all traffic gets in congestion in Göteborg.

Riksväg 34, Fornåsakorset

An intersection on riksväg 34 just north of Linköping has been very prone to accidents for the past 20-30 years or so. Earlier this year though, work started on constructing a grade-seperated interchange instead, and it was completed late this summer.

Overview of the new interchange [PDF], which apart from the interchange itself includes bus stops for regional express buses and a commuter parking.

Here's street view of what the intersection used to look like, and here's a picture (looking from the West):


I took some pictures of the completed interchange, but it was hard to get any really good ones since only one side of the road has a sidewalk, and there are guard rails in the way on the bridge.

Looking South from the bus stop:


Looking North from the bus stop:


Up on the local road. To the right is the road leading to the commuter parking.


Other direction up on the overpass:


The commuter parking:


Riksväg 34 towards Linköping, one of very few expressways (motortrafikleder) with a 110 km/h speed limit.


Wider view looking south towards Linköping:


View towards Motala:

2,8 km of the new E22 between Sölvesborg and Mörrum has to be repaved next spring/summer. According to the final inspection by authorities the cross slope is not good enough, thus increasing the risk of water not draining properly. Source: http://www.svt.se/nyheter/regionalt/...-far-underkant

Nice pictures of that intersection on road 34. A small pice of the puzzle to build 2+1 on the whole road 34 between Linköping and Motala.

Ervasteby–Borensberg outside Motala is the next strech to be built according to trafikverket.se

Interesting I didnt drive here since summer and now they have constructed a new interchange already. What about the speed limit ? Was it 50km/h before and is it 90km/h now ? or did they extend the expressway (motortrafikled)

Now that the anonymous secondary county road (sekundär länsväg) 1050 is connected to the national road 34 with a grade-seperated interchange I think they at least could name the 1050 on the road signs, or give the road a higher status like a primary 3 digit county road. (länsväg)

The motortrafikled ends a little earlier than before, but the speed limit throughout the interchange is 90 km/h instead of 70 km/h. On the overpass the limit is 70 km/h.

Well, numbers above 499 aren't signed, and stating Ljungsbro and Fornåsa as destinations on the signs are just enough. I do agree that they could make it a signed county road though. Both 208 and 220 are available numbers.

E22 Karlskrona - Mörrum

The east-west part of E22 along the south coast of Blekinge (map). From Karlskrona to Mörrum, just west of Karlshamn. Many maps show this route as a motorway, but in fact only a few kilometers west of Karlskrona is a motorway, the rest is mostly 2+1, but a small part is not a motortrafikled (expressway). This route is 63 kilometers long.

Photos:
1. Karlskrona-Ö exit. With the ferry to Poland. And omnipresent Växjö.

toll roads

Tolling on the Sundsvall Bridge (E4) and Motala Bridge (RV 50) has been postponed to 1 February 2015 due to the failed budget.

Good, this madness should be stopped ASAP anyway, but a few months later is a good start.

Göteborg congestion charge

I took a look at the traffic figures of the Göteborg congestion charge.

http://www.transportstyrelsen.se/sv/...t-i-Goteborg1/

It appears that traffic levels have stabilized at around 600,000 toll passages per day. 2014 has slightly higher levels of traffic than 2013, especially when you compare Q1 2013 with Q1 2014, which is likely due to the initial ramp-up period.

There is not a whole lot of variation between the months. So far the highest volume month was June 2014 with an average of 611,000 toll passages per day, while the lowest, August 2014, had 562,000 toll passages per day on average. (these figures are adjusted for the number of tolled days).

All roads lead to Växjö The name comes from "väg" (road) and "sjö" (lake).

I drove all of E22 in June, Växjö is signed at nearly every intersecting road of importance.

Here.

Choose "Trafikuppgifter" in the first dropdown list, and then "ÅDT totaltrafik". Zoom in enough, select the info cursor above the dropdown lists and click on road segments for more detailed info. Note that the data is often split into each direction, so for total AADT you need to add them together.

Alternatively, use http://vtf.trafikverket.se/SeTrafikfloden

Click "Tung trafik" to show truck AADT only. Type a road number in "Vägnummer" to only show AADT for that road on the map.

Happy news! Today it´s official that after a long and persistant resistance from the Swedish green party they finally gave up. The most expensive infrastructur project ever in Sweden will now start 1 january 2015. It´s the bypass Stockholm, 21 km 3*3 motorway (18 km in tunnels) west of Stockholm. Total cost around 3-4 billion Euro.

Very good news! Perhaps they were afraid the freezing of this major project would cost them votes in the upcoming elections.

Here's the government press release: http://www.regeringen.se/sb/d/18662/a/251922

The Social democrats traded closing of Bromma Airport for a "go ahead" for bypass Stockholm with the Swedish green party. It´s no question the greens are the big losers in this deal. I think potentially it can cost them a big loss is in the coming election, let´s hope so :-)
