When they built the motorway at Enköping they knew at that time that motorway should go to Västerås and the end of the motorway were built for that. So at last this is finished, but at least 20 years to late.

Speaking of motorway in Västerås AADT is there up to 40.000. Is there any need of a new northern motorway bypass?

Was the Västerås bypass planed to go from hallstahammar? Because there it stops to be reserved space for another carriageway.

The route through Västerås is a 2x2 motorway. At 40.000 vehicles per day, this really shouldn't be a problem, in the Netherlands such volumes are only found in rural areas in the north of the country and are considered very quiet motorways.

Although, the motorway through Västerås has some other problems, like very tight between some exits. Unusually tight for Sweden, actually.

I was glad to notice that the speed limit was 120km/h - even through the 220m and 175m long tunnels!

Much safer to do 120 km/h in tunnels compared to snowy roads in the open air.

Really? For real??? Seriöst?!?

Are we really allowed to drive that fast?!?!?

Sorry, I just can't believe this, we're actually allowed to drive 120 km/h on a brand new motorway!

120 km/h isn't that stunning, but it is unusual through tunnels. In nearly all countries, tunnels are limited between 80 and 110 km/h. As far as I know only Italy does not have speed reductions at tunnels (hence you can drive 130 km/h through them).

I was surprised about the speed limit on this strech, and especially so through the tunnels. However, we should keep in mind that they are only about 200 m long. I doubt the speed limit in the Förbifart Stockholm tunnel will be highter than 90.

It will not, it says at Trafikverket's project site that it's projected for 90 km/h.

Current condition of swedish roads:


Green: No problems
Yellow: Bad condition (moist, slush strings)
Red: Very bad condition (slush, packed snow, powder snow, ice patches)
Blue: Winter road condition (ice with bare tracks)

5.5 km of 2x2 E45 opened to traffic between Nödinge and Nol, almost a year ahead of schedule. Another extension to Älvängen will open in the spring of 2011. These locales are locates just north of Göteborg.

120km/h also at the E4 Linköping-Mjölby. (My favorite motorway) About 2 years ago this new speed was introduced on some routes, prior speed was 110km/h. This is the usual speedlimit of motorways in sweden.

In Denmark it's 130km/h and those roads are not as straight as the swedish ones, also the flow of traffic is much higher.

On the 120km/h routes most motorist tend to be speeding, usually +10 to +20 km/h faster.

If the speed limit was 130km/h here, motorists would probably be driving at 150km/h.

No, they probably wouldn't, since most people would be fully content with 130 km/h on the motorways. Even now, I haven't heard any complaints from people I know about low speed limits. But my opinion is that it could be higher.
