Looks like all ports will get alcohol control stations in the future, in short you wont be able to enter drunk at any port.

I think that controlling drivers that arrive (from a booze cruise) is much more important but I guess that applies as well.

Edit: You probably meant that by entering a port My bad.

Anyway, how will it work exactly? Will it be automated? If so, how will they make sure the driver is the one taking the breathalyzer test?

Here's a drawing of the standard profile from the new E4 outside Ljungby:

Also take into account that both TallinkSilja's and Viking's Stockholm-Turku services have only one hour of port time in each end. An extra delay of, say, 15 seconds for 400 vehicles each totals 100 minutes; even if taken simultaneously on two lanes, it's 50 minutes; three lanes still requires more than half an hour, and even that's quite much. The ferry must of course be empty of arriving vehicles as soon as possible before new ones can drive in, but there isn't really too much space between the terminal and the street.

It will be the type of gate you see on the turnpikes and yes it will be auto automated, a positive test will be dealt with by the police.

Sorry for bad quality. this is the new R40 (Ulricehamn section). It was hard to find a good location to snap the tunels because it's quite far from the bridge...

Towards Jönköping




Towards Borås

Petrol tax increase proposed

The current Red-green government announced today that they intend to raise the petrol tax by 44 öre/liter (5 cents (€)), and diesel by 48 öre/liter, among other tax raises. Not a good day for car and road enthusiasts.

Can they actually get a majority for that, considering it's a minority government?

Sweden does not practice democracy, I know you think I'm joking but it is de facto the truth now.
Off course one could spin it to sound better but bottom line is democracy is dead.

I think you can charge your electrical car for free here. Fully electrical cars are still uncommon in Sweden.

Does the petrol tax apply on biogas too ? If not, it may still be a good day because I have a Volvo V70 bifuel car.

No E85 is petrol, biogas is something else. I have filled up once. The price is about 17SEK/kg which corresponds to the petrol price of 11SEK/L. But the biogas consumption is much higher than driving in petrol mode.

They didn't say anything about biogas. It's a renewable option anyway, so I don't see them raising the tax on that.

The taxation is about collecting money, not about promoting noble things. Even in Sweden.

While the consumption of biogas is insignificant, the gas is insignificant as a cash cow. The more its market share grows, the more likely its tax will raise.

Linghem, Sweden

Linghem is a small village (pop. 2800) from where many people commute to Linköping, but the road Tellbovägen is curvy with many brows of hills.
A lot of trucks also use this road and in the winter driving here can feel unsafe at times.

Maybe a new straighter road would facilitate the drive Linghem-Linköping in the future.


My suggestion


Official suggestion with connection to the E4 motorway.


Tellbovägen. Traffic is quite noticable at rush hour. This photo was taken on a saturday. Speed limits vary between 50-70km/h.


Not much space on the shoulder for the bus on this narrow road. I went on my bicycle here, and I was very cautious.
A biclycle lane would be necessary too.
