This thread is in the international section of Skyscrapercity, hence English is used, even in communication between Swedes.

I actually love them. If services are constructed along the motorway they have usually some sort of monopole. Operator sign a contract with the road authority to lease the space but then he doesn't have to worry about competition and can charge premium (sometimes ridiculous) for food and fuel.
In the "US model" with services off line, near junctions, competition keep prices lower. I love those places where you have 5 gas stations and 10 different fast food joints to choose from. It's consumer dream

If you're in to junk food, then the rest stop near Värnamo Södra on E4 is a real dream. You have three different burger places to choose from. McDonald's, Burger King, and MAX within literally a few meters.

That's nice to know if I ever go to Sweden. I have no desire to eat at McVomits (McDonald's) Come to think of it, I think Subway has locations in Sweden. Nom!!!

Jag håller med. Det fantastiska med Internet är att språkbarriärer är minskat, tack vare Google Translate. Jag inte talar svenska, men jag förstod allt du sa. Svenska motorvägar är stora och svenska musiken är bra också (jag är en stor anhängare av Moneybrother och Mando Diao).

Subway is also very frequent in Sweden with 23 locations in the Stockholm metropolitan area alone, but they're exclusive to towns and large shopping centers so you won't find any of them at rest stops save for possibly a few places.

Comcerning the language issue, when you're in a conversation where there are several people present, I consider it an act of courtesy to speak the language everyone understands most easily. This is the norm in every social situation, not just on the web.

I know; I was just joking and I do not know a lick of Swedish, although I managed to follow some of it after watching The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo with subtitles (some words are quite similar to English, as are the structures of some of the sentences).

I guess I'm accustomed to this kind of "rudeness", living in South Florida, where many people have no problem speaking in Spanish so that us non-Spanish speaking idiots cannot understand them.

E4 Sundsvall

The Swedish government has given go-ahead for the new motorway stretch south of Sundsvall on E4, rejecting five appeals to the project. Thus, construction can finally begin

Article (Swedish): http://www.dn.se/nyheter/sverige/hel...e4-i-sundsvall

Facts:

Total length: 20km (With the already existing motorway north of the city, Sundsvall will have around 30km of motorway when this project is completed)
Width: 21,5 and 18,5m
Number of interchanges: 5
Bridge length: 1420m
Estimated cost: 4,5 billion SEK
Completed in: 2015

Map:



Renderings:





Interchanges:

North of the bridge


South of the bridge

Finally! This is a very important project for northern Sweden. I wish Trafikverket would build at least 2+2 Gävle-Sundsvall.

Big distances and not much traffic. I think 2+1 will do OK actually.

At least there will be 2+2, grade separated between Söderhamn and Hudiksvall this year. There's also a plan for 22km of more 2+1 between Sundsvall and Hudiksvall.

I agree with the 2+2, since it will eventually be needed anyway. However, given that they plan to build more of 2+1 instead of 2+2 it doesn't seem likely with 2+2 between Gävle and Sundsvall in the somewhat near future, unfortunately.

This will make it easier to reach points north. When I visit It will get me from STHLM to Träsk quicker, that is, when it's complete
It also should take a significant amount of traffic off the current E4/surface streets in Sundsvall. 2015 isn't too bad!
