Dual Carriageways DO have intersections at grade. Motorways have GRADE SEPARATED junctions (The motorway sign proves it's a motorway).

Yeah, but you should see the Swedish E4 north of Söderhamn, they call it a motorway but there is no shoulder, no acceleration lane or braking lane. But hey, it's 2x2 without level crossings so the motorway laws apply just because there is a sign.

As part of the Fehmarn belt project the Rødby-Sakskøbing section of the motorway to Rødby will be upgraded, most likely including hard shoulders and new lay-out of junctions. The Danish Road Directorate are currently doing carrying out the design (including EIA) of the upgrade project. The cost will be carried by the Fehmarn Belt project.

There is a section on E20 (Fyn) without shoulders, but still motorway, indeed I have to say a definition of motorway includes hard shoulders (my opinion) but obviously not everytime, although it is common on motorways with bridges/tunnels.

Now this is what I call a viaduct. Very tall.

Anyway this E45 road has shoulders but no motorway classification.

One of the busiest motorways in Denmark, has had a long stretch without hard shoulders for ages now. It's currently being upgrades from 4 to 6/8 lanes with shoudlers, though.

I am of course talking about the stretch between Fløng and Trekroner.

Has anyone heard anything about how work is progressing on rv73 to Nynäshamn? Gryt-Överfors opened last september and the original plan was for the whole road all the way to Nynäshamn was supposed to be finished this October. But when I passed there two weeks ago (during nighttime) it didn't seem to have come far enough. Any reasons for the delay?

The extension of Malmö's inner beltway by Hyllie is nearing completion. It is signed as "motor road" but has grade separated junctions and is 2x2 and 2x3 at some parts north of the Hyllie area-- I guess it could be counted as a proper motorway.


It is sort of visible in these webcam shots;

It's the western sector. Seems mostly interesting for commuters from Malmö to København and for traffic to western Malmö. Truck traffic to the port of Malmö rather uses the E22. I've been there once at the Malmö - Travemünde ferry (got a big sticker).

Motorways trough cities are generally not signed in Sweden i think (Unless there is an europeväg or riksväg.) It's the same in Göteborg, where E6 passes right trough downtown with 70 km/h, still it's signed motorway. While Lv159, also 70 km/h passes trough western suburbs is 100% grade separated, but is not signed as motorway.

So basically Annetorpsvägen is being rebuilt? Do you know how far west the new motorway section will reach?

That's not correct. Most of the motorways trough cities are signed. And it doesn't matter if it's an E-road or not.

The motorways Inre Ringvägen (Inner Beltway) and Västkustvägen in Malmö are signed but they don't have any road numbers but are treated as "local roads" despite being motorways. Is this common elsewhere in Sweden?


Shifty2k5,

Basically Inre Ringvägen is being extended to include the parts west of Trelleborgsvägen all the way to Lorensborgsgatan. This is to provide the new Hyllie area (the "dusty" looking area in the satellite photo) with proper road connections. The stretch between Trelleborgsvägen and Pildamsvägen was finished a couple of years ago already.

Pildamsvägen is also being upgraded to 2x2 with barrier from Holma and southwards past Lindeborg (but is not a motorway due to the low speed limit and the roundabout above the Inner Beltway). I'm not sure if it will be 2x2 all the way down to the Outer Beltway but it will connect with the Beltway through a new interchange constructed due to the massive developments (the world's second largest IKEA etc.) in the Svågertorp area.


ChrisZwolle's map for reference:
