Nice pic Chris, is it recently taken? I drove there two weeks ago and the asphalt was still old and worn at that time.

Quick question, where do you guys find the AADT for roads in Sweden?

A normal swedish 2+1 road - VIDEO VERSION!!

Road 111 - Helsingborg to Höganäs



Remember how I wrote a few weeks back that I would take some pictures of 111 city motorway that is currently under construction in Helsingborg? Well, I didn't. It was raining the entire day and my car was out of town. But I did make it up to you.

Yesterday the sun was out and I decided to make a little video of a short road trip. This is my first driving video ever, so bear with me.

The 111 connects Helsingborg, the eight largest city of Sweden, with Höganäs, a small but vibrant city located to the north of Helsingborg, just south of the Kullen peninsula.

My video starts out in a quiet residential neighbourhood in eastern Helsingborg, then takes you out on the E4 and finally the 111.

I've also littered the video with annotations so that you'll be informed about the conditions on the road and some of the surroundings. Enjoy!

Hi Shifty2k5. Of course I remember your promise. :-) Good video! Thank you. Driving on that 2+1 road looks really smooth. Is speed limit lowered when crossing the intersections?

It usually isn't, if there isn't a special intersection, like a roundabout.

Very nice video, I just have to point out one minor fault in the driving facts (which I enjoyed very much, gives the video something else than just views). You claim to pass the start of E4 at the beginning of Ängelholmsleden. That's false, the E4 in Sweden begins in the port of Helsingborg, more precisely at the roundabout between Oceangatan and Nya Sjögatan.

Thanks for an interesting video Shifty, I enjoyed it! With an AADT of between 10 000 and 20 000 they really should have upgraded the 111 to a 2x2 road.

Looking forward to more videos, I'd love to see one from the E6!

I probably should have checked my own map before I uploaded it

You're absolutely right! The E55 goes from Greece to Helsingör, across the sound and then ends at the Oceangatan roundabout. That's where the E4 starts. The "real" E4 goes thru the center of Helsingborg and out of the city on Ängelholmsleden, aka E4.23. But it's not posted as E4 on this route, because then the city center would face some serious truck traffic etc. So the E4 goes southbound at first on Malmöleden, then joins the E6 for a couple of KMs and then heads east at trafikplats Kropp. All very confusing.

EDIT

BTW, some videos!



Some Denmark in there too


Credit goes to the people who made the videos.

Ah, you mean that part with the motorway that's not actually a motorway but a regular highway?

The part that's regular highway and the part that's motorway until the tunnel is Denmark.

If whoever made it took the ferry to Rødby instead of Gedser, it would be all motorway from Denmark to Sweden

Well, it has dual carriageways and and grade seperated junctions. Maybe not the best motorway in DK, but most certainly a motorway...

There are lots of motorways in Germany that don't have a shoulder. The A1 around Neustadt-in-Holstein for example. If the regulations of a motorway apply, then it's a motorway. The E47 is definitely a motorway.
