According to the E22 project page, first sod took place on 18th March. I think the section can be called "under construction" now:

E22: west of Linderöd – east of Linderöd 6.5km (March 2016 to June 2018) – projectmap

Dunno why they are putting the tunnelbana there. The route for the blue line has already been decided as far as I know as going via Södermalm. Seems to be a greenwash unless the Tvärbanan is meant to go that way...

Jönkping is a beatiful city. My friend lives there so we always go partying there

OT: I don't know if this is mentioned, Trafikverket has had some complaints about the bridges. It's way to bumpy when you drive over them. This is some old news but they will start doing repairs on this.

9 maj - 17 juni utförs asfaltering på väg 40 mellan Rångedalamotet och Hössnamotet i Ulricehamns kommun.
Trafik i en riktning kommer att ledas om på väg 1704 (gamla väg 40).
Busstrafiken på väg 40 kommer att påverkas.
Also, sadly, the first death has occured on the new road.^

I'm pretty sure the works on RV40 this summer has nothing to do with bumpy bridges, but rather they're just paving the final layer of asphalt one year later which is standard procedure.

Yes you are right mate. I was a bit unclear. People complained about bumpy bridges but trafikverket said the explanation you just said

Is Förbifart going to be 2x5-2x6 lanes? :o

Meanwhile, all Helsinki region's road projects were delayed with 10-25 years...

No, it's going to be 2x3 lanes plus on/off-ramps. Where it intersects with the current E4 north and south of the city they'll be like 3+3+3+3 plus ramps.
The tunnel will be all 3+3 (plus on/off-ramps) and thus practically impossible to widen (as well as practically impossible to implement BRT in since the on/off-ramps will be the real choke-points and those are all 1 lane).

Road 23/34, Rimforsa-Skeda udde

The road administration (Trafikverket) is planning a dual carriageway between Rimforsa-Skeda Udde

The road will be rebuilt with alternating lanes of 1 + 1, 2 + 1 and 2 + 2 and provided with a central barrier (except for a few short stretches in the south).

The plan proposes separate pedestrian and cycle paths between road 603 and the individual road at Eda, approximately 800 m, and between Hökhult and the new bus stop at Skeda Udde. The connection of the road 688 towards Västerby is expanded by a leftturn-lane on the road 23/34. Total distance about 18 km.

South of Skeda Udde there will be two new bus stops
A grade-separated crossing for pedestrians and cyclists under the road 23/34
with the possibility to park cars in the vicinity.

Private roads may have their exits changed.
Estimated cost of the project is a total of about 90 million SEK, including costs for land acquisition and planning.




Road 34 at Brokind


Many trucks on this road. I as a bicyclist am looking forward to the new bikepath at Eda which makes it much easier to bicycle from Brokind to Rimforsa without having to worry about the trucks passing by on road 34.

I'm planning a vacation in Sweden and the Vildmarksvägen (Wilderness Road) crossed my mind. It's a little farther north than I planned to go (Åre).

Some questions;

* Is it realistic to drive it in one day, photo stops included? (Strömsund and back)
* Is it really a must-see compared to Dalarna or Jämtland? I want to visit Norway too, so I'm getting a good share of very scenic areas.
* How bad are mosquitos at altitudes over 300 m in June?

Good choice. Åre is not a very interesting place, especially in the summertime.

Quote:

Yes, it is. The length of the day is some 20 hours in June, and the roads are almost deserted. But why?

If you travel in the inland of Sweden, especially north of E18, you will drive hundreds and hundreds of kilometers in the forest. That may turn boring.

The Blåsjöfjäll area is one of the hidden gems in Sweden, and definitely worth visiting. I recommend taking to route over Vilhelmina, Klilmpfjäll and Blåsjö to Gäddede but not returning to Strömsund. Instead, I would cross the Norwegian border and drive to the southwest.

It is a matter of taste. Trees are taller in Dalarna.

Quote:

If windy, then no problem. If not, then better to prepare. My recipe is pretty bulletproof: Cetirizine pills (antihistamine, commercial name e.g. Zyrtec) for proactive itch prevention, then mosquito repellent (e.g. Off, the stronger the better) to keep the insects away (do not forget to protect ankles, stockings are not enough), and some cooling stuff (like Etono stick) if you still get itchy. The daily pill is to be taken at least an hour before getting exposed to the flying devils.

Are the mosquitos that bad? I went to Värmland and Kalmar in June 2014 and did not see any mosquitos (nor in Norway).

Is the Wilderness Road entirely paved?

The northern mosquitoes are usually more aggressive than the southern ones. The population varies a lot across years. If the spring weather is dry then most of the eggs will not develop to insects. The mosquitoes are not as evil as the black flies (those millimeter-size bastards resembling flies). The same recipe applies to them.

I warmly recommend preparing from them, because they might make you feel very uncomfortable. Those chemical supplies are quite cheap.

If I recall, the road is entirely paved. Of course, there may be roadworks. Anyway, a non-paved road seldom is any issue, except your car may get dirty.
