E4 Stockholm - Sodertälje - Nyköping - Oxelösund



This one travels south from Stockholm, through the southern suburbs to rural Sweden, heading for Nyköping. Distances are long. In Nyköping we take a local expressway to harbor town Oxelösund.

E4 -> 230 pics

New Swedish twin tunnel

Skanska is building two tunnels in Swedish capital Stockholm for the new Northern Link bypass. The 44 million Euro contract is being carried out for the Swedish National Road Administration and involves the construction of a 1km, twin tunnel section. This will link the E4 expressway with the Norrtull intersection in Stockholm. Part of the section passes under the Karolinska Hospital and Eugenia Tunnel. The project involves a total of 600m of rock tunnel and 230m of concrete tunnel, with related roads and groundwork. Preparatory work has started and the project is due for completion in five years. The Northern Link, will be 5km long, is one of Sweden’s largest road projects and stretches between Norrtull and Värtan on the north side of the city, with connections to the Roslagsvägen thoroughfare at Stockholm University. The Northern Link is intended to improve traffic flow and environment in the area through reducing the noise level and nitrous oxide amounts.

Quite a few stretches of motorway are opening on the E18 this year. The E18 goes btwn Stockholm and Olso through Karlstad. The largest stretch currently under construction is 19 km long and connects to the existing E18/E20 junction close to Örebro.

Is there a plan to connect Stockholm and Oslo with motorway? Would it even be profitable?

No, plans are that from Norrtälje and Stockholm all the way to Segmon will be a continuous motorway or 2+2 motorroad. The last ~100 kms to the norweigan border will eventually be a 2+1 road.

Some 100 kms to the south, the E6 crosses on the Uddevalla bridge:

By 2012, the E6 will be a motorway all the way from Oslo to Gothenburg.

^ Well wiki says it's the swedish side, and zooming it in, the text "Gällande kort" is in swedish. Same as here:

The toll Plazas are at each side. You pay before the bridge. So there is one station at the Norwegian side, and one station at the Swedish side.

Really have to try going along the E6 sometime, never driven on it really (other than in Skåne).

Will be really nice once the E6 is all motorway!

A new stretch of like 15km a bit north of Gothenburg opens mid-June this year, June 13 or 14 I think.

When this happens, Norway will finally be connected with the European motorway network. North of Oslo, however, E6 will be motorway only for about 112 more km, so there is still about 2300 km to go before the whole E6 is motorway

E6 in Sweden menade jag. With the motorway building pace of Norway being worse than even the poorest EU countries, it'll be loooong time before the E6 is all motorway. :P

What I really wish was for motorway Oslo-Stockholm!

It is improving though, with several E18 stretches opening this year. Värmland is also looking into making Karlstad-border with Karlskoga all motorway by 2020 and Karlstad-Norwegian border 2+1. That would be great!

I doubt if the E6 will ever will be completely motorway. Maybe up to Trondheim, but the E4 route through Sweden is shorter and faster to extreme northern Norway.
