But that just shows "above 16 000" etc

This article at least mentions a possible time span, but it seems to me that there are no concrete plans (from trafikverket at least). It seems stupid to build new lanes only to wait ~10 years to open them, so I'm sure there's more to it than we know.

E20 Alingsås-Vårgårda 18 km project

A typical motorway project is years, not rarely decades in the making before actual construction starts. The new government's achievement is not so much initiating these motorway projects, but rather not to discontinue them.

However, you'll see that most leftwing governments in Europe do not advance much projects that are in planning stage. You can see this in France where a record low number of public utility declarations were issued in 2014, while the previous years of the Hollande government were also minimal.

The fact that left-wing governments generally do not favor highway construction is unique to Europe. For example most of Latin America has had decades of left-wing governments, yet are constructing new highway infrastructure at a fast pace. The same goes for communist China. Most of Cuba's autopistas were built under the Marxist-Leninist regime of Fidel Castro.

It was pretty close that the Greens managed to stop Bypass Stockholm but the right majority in the parlament voted against stopping it. If the left oriented goverment will stay in power I guess big highway projects like the E20 in Västra Götalad, E22 in Skåne and E4 outside Ljungby are in danger being stopped. That would be very bad for economic growth and traffic safety.

Wow, are those anti-car and anti-road fanatics brainwashed by the likes of eco-terrorists such as Greenpeace?

I guess I remember one crazy politician in Brussels that wanted to ban sports cars because she considers them noisy and a threat to the environment

My advice to this tree-hugging politician: Don't hate, just appreciate.

IMHO
Transportation should be a holistic and balanced approach. One should NEVER ban or eliminate one mode over another because each has its own purpose and preference.

But hey, if these hippies still want to impose and force their viewpoints upon everyone else, then expect that things won't go their way.

Heck, maybe the Lamborghini owners might just decide to run over these hippie-freaks for going too far

The Göteborg congestion charge goes up on 1/1/15.

http://www.transportstyrelsen.se/sv/...-januari-2015/

The highest rate is now 22 kr (€ 2.30)

NRK also reports Norwegians will have to pay the congestion charge in Göteborg next year.

E4 Sundsvall

First traffic counts indicate the new Sundsvall Bridge is used by 12,000 vehicles per day. Truck traffic in Sundsvall has been reduced by 80%. Of course, this is before the tolling kicks in next month.

I suspect that Sundsvall municipality will enforce traffic calming measures on the old E4 to slow things down to the point where it becomes more profitable to take the bridge, even given the toll. Another way is to ban trucks which destination is not within the city itself, like here in Umeå.

Tolling in Motala and Sundsvall



Today the Transport Authority will start collecting tolls (or "infrastructure fees") on the recently constructed bridges in Motala (rv 50) and Sundsvall (E4).

The toll for the Motala Bridge is 5 SEK (0,5 €) for cars, light lorries and buses, while it's 11 SEK (1,2 €) for lorries/trucks. The toll is collected 24/7 year-round, and applies to foreign vehicles as well!

For the Sundsvall Bridge, the toll is 9 SEK (1 €) and 20 SEK (2,1 €) respectively. The same type of tolling practices apply. There is no maximum amount, unlike the congestion charge.

Some vehicles are excempt from the toll, namely
  • Motorcycles
  • Mopeds/scooters
  • Emergency vehicles
  • Corps diplomatique
  • Mobile cranes
  • Buses weighing over 14 tonnes

Trafikverket estimates that the Motala Bridge will be paid off in about 40 years, and the Sundsvall Bridge in 35 years.

The collection is electronic, and at the end of every month the Transport Authority sends out bills to be paid over the next month. Failure to pay will result in a late fee of 300 SEK (36 €), and after that an additional 500 SEK (60 €) before being forwarded to the Swedish Enforcement Authority.

The tolls are fairly cheap. Of course it adds up if you have to pay it on a daily basis, but I wonder if they are going to pursue collecting a bill of € 1 - 2 for foreigners (most will likely only pass once or twice). It seems that the cost of collecting the fee could be higher than the revenue.

E20 Västra Götaland

6.5 billion crowns (€ 700 million) has been made available to upgrade 9 segments of E20 east of Göteborg to a four-lane / 2+1 divided highway.
