"Utställelsehandlingarna", or basically the results of the planning process of Förbifart Stockholm has been released to the public and is available at http://www.trafikverket.se/Privat/Pr...lsehandlingar/.

There's a lot to look through if your interested. Some things that I found:

Overview map of the project:




Trafikplats (junction) Häggvik is the northern and ending point of Förbifart Stockholm, where the motorway will merge with the existing E4.

Current trafikplats Häggvik (where E4 merges with Norrortsleden):




Trafikplats Häggvik with Förbifart and E4:




Same as last but from a ground perspective:

It was approved in 2009 and construction is expected to start in 2012.. So it's a slow process, but we're getting there.

Thanks guys! Some locations might be a bit obscure even for swedes, but sometimes they are the only reference.

Thanks, nice to see that things are moving along as planned. With the longest tunnel section measuring almost 17 kms I guess this has the potential of being one of the longest motorway tunnels in the world?

It also included a useful map of current AADT-figures in the metro area.

The Zhongnanshan Tunnel in China is the longest with it's 18 km, so no. And it wouldn't have been for long anyways. Rogfast outside Stavanger will be about 25 km.

It will be the second-longest twin-tube road tunnel though. It may be rivaled by the Fehmarnbelt Tunnel between Germany and Denmark.

The Fehmarnbelt tunnel will be 17,6 km, and include four tubes (2 for motorway and 2 for railway)

And here is Trafikplats Kungens Kurva, the start of the bypass from the south.

Today:


The bypass will be E4, the current E4/E20 will just be E20.

Rogfast will be motorway / two tubes as well, so when and if Fehmarn and Rogfast will be realized I guess (the impressing) Stockholm tunnel will be the fourth longest twin-tube, not taking into consideration other possible projects.

Working on detail-planning now. There are no binding long-term plans for Norwegian highways but it scheduled to start construction sometime between 2015 and 2019.
