I found gold today
Look at this old sign still in use, you can clearly see how the old E3 has been replaced by E20 in 1992 when the road number was changed. And the motorway symbol is blue!

Yes, the motorway symbol was blue in Sweden until sometime in the late 80's I think. Don't know the exact year.

The total length of the motorway network is currently 1860 km.
There's also 330 km of autostrasse/semi-motorway and 1660 km 2+1 roads.

A number of stretches are u/c, the most important perhaps being road 73 south of Stockholm, the Stockholm bypass on E4 (Förbifart Stockholm) and the Norra länken motorway tunnel in Stockholm.

Here's a motorway map. Green for motorway, blue for autostrasse.

Eventually... a new section east of Borås opened in 2007. But it will probably take another 10-15 years before it is motorway all the way to Jönköping. Today it's a 2+1 road with a 100 km/h speed limit on the missing part.

There is the section between Dållebo and Ulricehamn which currently is only 1+1 and with very poor standard. Construction will start very soon on a 17 km motorway between Dållebo and Hester, making a motorway bypass of Ulricehamn. It is scheduled to open for traffic in 2013. The remaining 42 km to Jönköping will most likely remain 2+1 for the foreseeable future, but at least there will be divided carriageways all the way.

Apparently, many 110 limits in Northern Sweden were lowered to 100 km/h or less. Many roads in southern Sweden increased to 90 km/h.
its pretty strange they wont have a 130 km/h limit on motorways like most of europe. Most of the swedish 2+1 roads with median barriers used to have 110 km/h, but are now lowered to 100 km/h. too much safety concern IMO

Don't forget Västra Götelands huge motorwayproject:

E45 Göteborg - Trollhättan, 75 km - finished in 2012.

E6 between Göteborg and Oslo is close to finishing aswell (2014.)

Well, “130 like most of Europe” is only half-true. Speed limits vary in Europe but 120 km/h is certainly just as common as 130. I think this is a fairly updated map of maximum speed limits in Europe.

Maximum speed limit on motorways:


120 km/h is being introduced in Sweden, but so far on too few stretches IMO. But give it time and I’m willing to bet that 120 km/h will be a more common motorway speed here aswell.

Not really. The rule was that 2+1 roads that were autostrasse/expressway had a 110 km/h limit and other 2+1 roads had a 90 km/h limit. (There were/are exceptions in the north). Now 100 km/h is the standard speed limit for all roads with a median barrier, which actually means that more stretches have been increased from 90 than lowered from 110.

There's a lot to be said about speed limits in Sweden, but the 100-rule on roads with a median barrier actually meets the criteria of being both logical and self-explanatory.
