Do people just drive from Gothenburg to Stockholm? There's nothing in between? I guess only a small share drives from Gothenburg to Stockholm.

Yes, I think it will benefit all cities and towns on the route of E20, not just for Göteborg - Stockholm traffic (which is already faster and shorter via riksväg 40 and E4).

Toll - 1 Euro
Postage stamp to Germany for the bill, 2 Euro

This is shallow waters about 10-15m of depth. 8,4 m at the shallowest point.

It is about principles. Everyone has to pay. Collection costs are a minor thing when principles talk.

The same case applies in Norway. The fees from 1.5 euros are billed by an English company. It checks the owner of the car, and sends a bill. I do not believe fees less than 15 euro will create any positive cash flow to the state of Norway.

I drove from Luleå to Umeå this saturday. The landscape surrounding the road was covered with a thick layer of snow and traffic was very light. All pictures were shot on my phone.

U/C motorway projects with estimated completion in 2015:

E6: Tanumshede – Palen 7km (2013 to 2015) – projectmap
40: Dallebo – Hester 17km (2012 to November 2015) – projectmap

According to the project page, the final E6 section should be opened this summer.

Quote:
Byggtiden är beräknad till två år så under sommaren 2015 planeras denna etapp, som är den sista att byggas ut till motorväg genom Bohuslän, kunna öppna för trafik.

People in other countries think Swedes are drunk and horny. But the road system is more than adequate for a country its size and population. The only congestions appear to be at Gothenburg, Jönkoping, Stockholm and the odd que at Malmo and Helsingborg.

Yes. They go through the Store Bält instead. The Store Bält Bridge is higher 70m over the water compared to the Öresund bridge which is 57m.

What about the tunnel part of Øresund? How much is the allowed draft?

I dont understand what you mean with draft, but the tunnel is located at 20m depth.

8 meters apparently. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drogden

The first Danish sub "dykkeren" sank in those waters in 1916 at 10 meters depth. The commander drowned despite the shallow water.

Have you experienced jams in jönköping on your travels? Cause I live here and the only queue I've ever been in on the E4 were because of accidents.

Yes, and there is a 17 meters deep route through the Great Belt, while the depth of the Öresund route is 8 meters only.

Most ppl believe Swedes are pretty smart, fact is ppl here are educated, there is a huge difference and this project is a another good example of the difference, the guys pulling this BS has tons of degrees I'm sure.

Look, why spend billions on a long stretch of motorway going thru sparse pop Västergötland and even after that you still lack a complete motorway GBG-08.
When you could easily just fill in the last km of RV40 and have a complete motorway west coast to east coast link. + incl JKP, LKP and NKP.

A shorter cheaper complete link vs a more expensive longer incomplete link.
Just finish rv40 and sign it GBG-08 already, it's a no-brainier really.

Draft is the distance between the sea level and the bottom-most point of a ship. But my question was answered anyway, it's 8 m.

Another question: how does Norra Länken, when finished, affect the Stockholm congestion toll?

For instance, will there be toll for driving between Värtan (TallinkSilja terminal) and Nordtull?
