Ohh good'ole Motormännen, this is the text book "Trojan horse organization".
They claim to work in car owners interest, they don't really, it's one of many "fake opposition" orgs in Sweden who's main purpose is to make enough noise to drown all the real unfiltered critic from real tax payers.
If you can control your critics, imagine the power? = Total calm to do whatever madness in peace.

I would toss anything they say right in the trash, without as much as a glance.

Look at the black line past Karlstad, it's 10 times longer than the 7km section should be.

The American AAA and usually Canadian CAA work in the same way.

länsväg 336

Some photos of länsväg 336 north of Åre. It is the northernmost road I've driven so far (2000 kilometers from home). (location) It is even 4,400 kilometers farther north than where I was a year before: the southernmost tip of Spain (by car from the Netherlands!)

1. Länsväg 336 circles around Kallsjön, a large lake north of Åre.

2.

3. Wilderness. The road is 110 kilometers long, but the only village is Järpen, at the beginning of the road. The rest are just some outlying houses, though there is almost nothing west of Kallsedet.

4.

6. Länsväg 336 becomes an unpaved road west of Kallsedet.

7. This is really a lonely area, I've seen only one other car on the 50 kilometer route west of Kallsedet.

8.

9. The border with Norway. On the Norwegian side, the paved fylkesvei 72 continues to Verdal.

My guess is that a Swedish-speaking person tried to write it in Norwegian but failed. Usually these signs are written in the language of the country being exited, anyway.

they wrote something incorrect but similar enough for both to understand... maybe like the "NO STEP" writings on aircraft wings, which is nonsensical grammar but obvious enough...

AADT is only 50, with a variation of 61%.
Looks like a very beautiful area. I would love to visit someday.

Of course either one is understood perfectly well. Especially when the names of the countries are the same in both languages.

(Well, Norwegian has two written standards, and the name of the country can be either Norge or Noreg, but the latter one is not used in that part of the country.)

Both signs seem to be set with the typeface "Trafikkalfabetet", which could indicate that both are produced in Norway. Only difference is the capitalization of the letters. Compare with the distance sign on the Swedish side.

Other fun facts:
When continuing south/west on fylkesveg 72, you'll get to a junction where you can turn left to go back into Sweden. This road is signposted fylkesveg 322, but the real number is actually 756, as you will see on a route confirmation sign after the junction. The reason for this discrepancy is that the road number on the Swedish side of the border is Länsväg 322.

Coming from the west on fv. 72 one could wonder why the seemingly more important fv. 72 decides to take a hard left and make a detour (to Østersund) via a gravel road instead of just going straight ahead on the paved 322.

While there are many fylkesveg 322 today, this used to be the (sort-of) only riksveg 322, and a 3xx number does not fit at all in this area. 3xx-roads are further south, e.g. in and around the Grenland area.

Finally, to add to the border sign text confusion, the border crossing on 322/756 does have correct spelling, and again both signs seem to be made to Norwegian layout and standard.

True, I was tricked by the capitalisation. That is generally not done in Norway. (Then again, Tratex should be easy to recognise on first look. My bad.)

Is the longer route safer in winter? In the Google link above, there is a "no traffic allowed" sign in the direction of the shorter route. (That sign is hidden but poorly, it's easy to see.) Maybe that route gets closed more often. Also, there is a barrier right after the border line.

Yes.

Furthermore, Southern Sami version of "Åre Kommun" seems to be missing (when looking backwards), despite that being an official minority language in Åre.

E6 ecoduct

An ecoduct is under construction across E6 south of Göteborg. This morning some falsework collapsed, creating a significant dip in the concrete deck. E6 was closed for traffic between Kungsbacka and Lindome. They decided it cannot be repaired and the structure will be torn down. They estimate E6 will reopen tomorrow evening.

E22

The final plans for the E22 motorway from Sätaröd to Vä have been approved.

It is the easternmost portion of the Malmö - Kristianstad motorway upgrade. It ties into the existing motorway at Vä.

It's being torn down as we speak.



Also, heres a render of the new junction on LV155/Lundbyleden in Gothenburg:

The bridge over the canal

Today I rode my bicycle through Norsholm and I saw the motorway bridge from a distance.


This is the 348m long motorway-bridge across the "Göta" canal. It was opened in 1988. That same year I received my driver's license


Before the motorway-bridge was opened this was the main road E4 between Stockholm and Helsingborg. If the canalboats needed to pass here, the road-bridge had to be opened which usually resulted in massive queues, it was quite an ordeal to pass here especially in the summer when the bridge was opened regulary.


The old and the new bridge


The canal


Former E4-now county road 215

Sorry It's 348m long, not high. The bridge at Norsholm is the 66th longest bridge in Sweden.

It's 22,5m high !

A stretch of E18 motorway west of Karlstad will open to traffic in June.

The planning and construction of Stockholms outer ring road moves on. Norrortsleden was inaugurated in 2008, the Stockholm bypass is currently under construction - and today the final alignment for the southern part, cross-connection Södertörn, was decided on. The road will connect Förbifart Stockholm/E4 with Nynäsvägen, RV 73.



Parts of the road will be tunneled - construction may start in 2020.
