Why ? There was no need for it, because the common cars you mentioned above didnt go faster than today's speedlimits of 110-120km/h.

For the same reason in Italy there was no a motorway speed limit until 1973.

Stockholm Bypass

Two major contracts have been awarded for the construction of tunnels for the Stockholm Bypass. Its value is 3.7 billion SEK (€ 400 million).

It's FSE 302 and FSE 308 on this map:

Good that they get going, but I think it's sad that they go to Lovön.
Why not have the road go more westward under Barkarby, Järfälla, Hässelby Villastan, onto Färingsö where it could go above ground, then in a tunnel under Ekerö Centrum and Hallunda and reconnect to E4?

Sort of like this:

Possibly because it wouldn't generate as many new car trips from existing suburbs due to being too far out for more people.
IMO the only motorway tunnel that would make sense is Diagonal Ulsvunda, but that was rejected due to being to much tunneling. Then they moved the longer, more circuitous, route to all underground and didn't want to look at the options again.

Is this Arlöv? I recognize the buildings in the background (Elisetorps- and Grönvägen) even though they've went through major aesthetic changes.

Edit: Just saw your source... Well I was right.

It seems there will be a gap left on this approximately 1 km of E18 between the future motorway junctions.
The construction of the first bridge was announced to begin last November/December.

I think there's currently only one additional motorway or expressway project u/c:

?: Gothenburg-Ringön (E6) – Gothenburg-Slakthuset (E45) 1km (2013 to Fall 2017) – projectmap

Are there currently more new motorway or expressway projects u/c or planned to begin in 2016?

Works have started on the new overpass at trafikplats Rebbelberga in Ängelholm. The old bridge will be demolished and replaced by a large roundabout on two new bridges. The project should be finished autumn 2016.

Works on the E22 Linderöd Bypass will commence on the 18th of march. The new motorway is scheduled to open in 2018.

Lund to TRBG on 108 and back on E6


Hopefully one day 108 will be the 3rd motorway ring around Malmö, today about 1/3 is either 2+2 or 2+1 separated highway, the section Lund to Staffanstorp is planned as 2+2 in the coming years.

Norra länken

The last tunnels of norra länken (the northern link) in Stockholm opened to traffic today. The main works are now completed.

The last tunnel was northbound E4 that connects to norra länken. According to Trafikverket the tunnel project is completed 1.5 years ahead of schedule.

How wide will E4 be in Akalla-Häggvik when the by-pass will be completed?

There's no explicit word on that. Seems to me like the project organization wants to keep things like that quiet since it'll be jarring to many how massive a project it is and how many more lanes of queues it'll generate.
http://www.trafikverket.se/nara-dig/...det-i-Haggvik/

even larger (as .pdf): http://www.trafikverket.se/contentas...norr_efter.pdf

By my count the image shows a total of 17 lanes at it's widest (with a small 1+1 road running next to it, but that one isn't part of the interchange). But that just in the interchange.

The changed configuration at Norra länken which will be in place until June 1st has caused a massive tailback yesterday and today. By now, rush hour should have been over, but the congestion stretches 15 km from Kungens kurva to Tomteboda. This has also caused big problems in the southern parts of Stockholm. Stockholm's grid is very vulnerable.

It sure is. It's not really a grid, and that's the problem. We've got a total of 4 bridges connecting South to North, 3 of which are in the Inner City. Essingeleden is barely outside the Inner City and urgently needs to *not* be the one pretty much everyone is funneled to.
The best solution IMO would be 1 or 2 bridges to the east of the Inner City and 3 or 4 to the west of Essingeleden. That way we'd have a grid with routes that could handle the extra flows of when there's jams on one or two bridges.

Also, wth? I thought the provisional routing thru Norra Länken would work fine. Apparently it doesn't. Would be interesting to know why. What is it that makes it slow things down this much? Unclear pathing? surprising turns?

Typically, it takes 2-3 days until most of the people learn the new routes. In congested routes, this accumulates quickly. If everyone thinks one extra second which exit to take, then the lane capacity may decrease by 20-30%. Most probably the traffic will flow fine next Monday.

The problem is that you have a divider very early on with one lane on each side. You can stay on any side and still reach your destination, but people are confused. I think a lot of unnecesssary lane changes are taking pace.

Plus the fact that the right lane leading towards Värtan is closed so they can shut the hole in the wall which was the temporary entrance to the tunnel system.
