An agreement for new infrastructure in and around Norrköping includes a new ring road along the eastern and northern side of the city.

2+2? Interesting, Sweden still constructs city-motorways (which is good).

I doubt the standard will be anything near a proper city motorway. Currently the E 22 (Söderleden) is narrow 2+2 with subpar entrace ramps (yield/stop) and a 70 km/h speed limit. It's not signed as motorway or expressway either.

Old Texaco Roadmap


Old Texaco Road map



Östergötland. The E4 motorway Linköping bypass is planned but not built yet.



Motorways in southern Skåne, Sweden. The E22 was called road 15 & E66. The E65 was called E14.


The E18 Stockholm-Västerås is only partially motorway yet, but the whole stretch is marked as planned on the map.


The E6 north of Göteborg is a motorway to St. Höga.

The E4 Stockholm-Norrköping is not motorway all the way. The Järna-Lästringe motorway-stretch is planned

The E6 at Landskrona is really busy with trucks.


From Landskrona to Björnsholm, Kalmar län. This is where the road 35 meets the E22 which is a 2+1 road here.


The E22 with wire barrier.


The county road 213 to the left. Björnsholm is to the right. What does the 212,2 blue sign mean?

Yes always trucks on E6, disproportionate amounts.


Picture from this article






But there is a passing ban for trucks and police is stopping offenders.

Yeah, the third lane shows it. We have also those third climb lines in few spots in Finland - and that one seems really justified. Trucks like near our border with Russia (except we don't have a motorway there yet, but it's U/C)!

A lot of it is going to Norway, improving the rail corridor between Oslo and Malmö and transfer the transit trucks to freight trains should free up most of the capacity issues the road has right now. But I guess the Swedish politicians lack the "cojones" to demand Norway to step up on the issue.

Most of the rail is in Sweden though, and a major hurdle for that connection will be done come winter when Hallandssåstunneln finally opens.

My bad, I believed the politicians who hosted the article and claimed it was E4...

I rarely go that far north, so I don't remember the incline on E4 or the decent at Båstad well anymore.

Yes, but it isn't enough. Norway is growing faster now than in the past, over 50K increase year over year. Most of the imports are trucked in through Sweden so cooperation is a must.

The existing railroad is not nearly enough even when it finally become a doubble tracked railroad all the way between Malmö and Oslo. We are talking about thousands of trucks every day, one freight train can take 30-40 trucks.

Norway can't expect that Sweden will bear the cost of their growing economy without some cooperation on solving the ever increasing congestion on E6.

According to the Vegkart of Statens Vegvesen, the average truck share on E6 at Svinesund is 16% at 14468 vehicles per day. That's 2.315 trucks per day, that's not high at all. Most major border crossings in central/western Europe into Germany carry over 10,000 trucks per day.

I drove E6 last year from Malmö to Svinesund and the amount of trucks really tapers off north of Göteborg.

E4, Stockholm Bypass

Implenia wins major order in Sweden for CHF 235 million

Implenia was awarded a major infrastructure order in Sweden. The "Förbifart Stockholm" bypass is creating a new north-south link on the edge of the capital city. Among four competitors Implenia is to handle the first construction section, Lot FSE 403. Contracts were signed today with the awarding body, the Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket). The order, which includes execution of the project as well as some of the planning, is worth around CHF 235 million (SEK 2.1 billion).

The section awarded to Implenia includes the two three-lane main shafts of the Johannelund Tunnel, which have a total length of 7.2 kilometres. The order also includes four single-lane entry and exit ramps, four access tunnels, several cross-shafts as well as electricity and ventilation stations. The lot is the first of six tunnel construction jobs awarded in connection with the bypass.

Full press release: http://www.implenia.com/en/media/med...2015-08-18-268

Implenia is the largest construction company in Switzerland. It acquired Bilfinger in late 2014.

Yes, but growth is very fast right now, truck traffic has trippled in less than a decade and will double again by the end of this decade. Norway is forcasted to add another 1 million to its population in the next 2 decades and that is without including war refugees from the middle east.

Really swanky visitor center on the new highway in Bohus, hope this is coming to more roads already built.
Sorta like the Mirador spots in Spain.

I tried to figure out if there something special visible there. The service area does not lie next to the rock carvings, does it?

There's also a nice viewing area along E6 northbound just north of Stenungsund.
