Hopefully this is a sign of Trafikverket turning around on this issue and start building bike infra instead of when turning 1+1 into 1+2 roads in essence banning bicycling on those roads and thus making biking so much more difficult.

The R40 section between Dållebo and Hester was opened on October 17, 2015. The good news is that we can travel almost all sections on a motorway from Goteborg to Stockholm.

Yes, it opened in october. There is just 40 minutes drive from ulricehamn to jönköping, but it's a very good 2+1 road

Would you really chose that route? It's nearly 200km longer than E18.

this route is better for vehicles coming from south...altough there is E4. But for vehicles driving the E20 this route is much better


aNyone who has info about R40 going all the way to jönköping? I have a friend there and he said that they are planning to extend the motorway

I drove across the Öresund Bridge yesterday and I used the credit card lane. They charged me as a large van, almost 1000 DKK. I went to the customer service and they debited my account.

Depends, what was mentioned here was Southern Norway - Stockholm. The Rv40 is not a good alternative for this route no matter if going via Moss, Drøbak, or Strömstad.

I very recently read in a newsletter that circulates among construction firms in jönköpings län, that the local region is looking for a "samordnare" who will work with a possible extension of the motorway from ulricehamn to jönköping. Not very concrete but at least it's something.

The biggest up and coming project in the area is the widening of road 26/47 from Jönköping to Mullsjö, roughly 20 km of new 2+1 road. Starts this autumn or early next year. Svevia won the tender.

I drove E45 south today, all the way from Östersund to Trollhättan. A very long drive (12 hours including stops, from Åre). Traffic is generally very light north of Mora, i had to pass only one truck on the nearly 600 kilometer drive from Åre to Torsby. I was a bit disappointed with the speed limits though, it was mostly 80-90 and the 100 stretches are fairly limited.

Sveg - Mora has uncomfortable pavement, it is very uneven and poorly patched up. I only saw maintenance works south of Mora. A small segment of E45 near Mellerud is being improved to 2+1. The amount of speed cameras north of Vänersborg is crazy, they were installed every few kilometers and this stretch is unimproved with several towns / villages and 70-80 km/t speed limits at best.

Here's a list of this summers roadworks in Dalarna:

http://www.trafikverket.se/om-oss/nyheter/Lansvisa-nyheter/Dalarna/2016-05/sommarens-vagarbeten-i-dalarnas-lan-2016/

Apparently 53 km of e45 will be repaved. Most asphalt on state roads is laid after the vacation period, so in August - October. This is to prevent the pavement from being exposed to very hot summer days when the bitumen rises and causes slippery spots.

Most of the pavement works on the 45 this summer will be made by first laying a thin layer of gravel and then immediately after cover it with bitumen. The result is very rough and rather noisy, but it's very cheap and fast compared to conventional asphalt.

I doubt one can expect too much from such remote roads, traffic is probably very light.

E45, Göteborg

Some photos of E45 in Göteborg.



1. Partihallsförbindelsen is a new interchange / viaduct where E20 meets E45 and E6. Under construction is the connection to the new Marieholm Tunnel under the Göta River.

E45-1 by European Roads, on Flickr

2. This area has 4 interchanges on 1 km²

E45-2 by European Roads, on Flickr

3. An exiting taper. The gantry is located a little far behind the point where traffic flows diverge.

E45-4 by European Roads, on Flickr

4. A railroad crossing. It appears to be an industrial railroad.

E45-5 by European Roads, on Flickr

5. E45 crosses under the railway to Trollhättan. It was upgraded to a commuter line in 2012 (Alependeln). They also built this new underpass with a more smooth S-curve than the previous one.

E45-6 by European Roads, on Flickr

6. There are two locations north of Göteborg where the old main road curves off into the outlying neighborhoods. This is the first one, redesigned as a left exit to County Road 190.

E45-7 by European Roads, on Flickr

7. The speed limit is only 80 km/h. I've driven this stretch in both directions just after the morning rush hour and most people were driving 100-110.

E45-9 by European Roads, on Flickr

8. The second spot where the old route splits off.

E45-10 by European Roads, on Flickr

9. Immediately after the split there is a set of traffic lights, the only one between Göteborg and Trollhättan.

E45-12 by European Roads, on Flickr

10. A large viaduct spans the Göta River Valley. It also spans across E6 to Oslo, E6 and E45 run only 0.5 kilometers apart, with the Göta River in between.

E45-13 by European Roads, on Flickr

11. Motorway status starts at Surte.

E45-15 by European Roads, on Flickr

12.

What's the point of it? It looks like a sort of trolleybus, but for freight transport.

The article speaks of a 22 kilometer segment, but Trafikverket says it's only 2 kilometers. The cost was 125 million SEK (€ 13 million)
