Current projects can be seen at my amateur site, http://withstand.thefalloftime.com/road. Today I added lists with all motorways and expressways in Sweden.

Someone (not necessarily Aphelion) should make a map of all 2+1 roads in Sweden. I think few foreigners realize how extensive the Swedish 2+1 network is.

Maybe I should make one? :p

I think that 2+1-standard is quite stupid. They are trying to bring it to Finland, because we always do everything the swedes do. In fact 2+1 is used when AADT is about 10 000, so it takes a few years and then a motorway is needed. It is far less expensive to upgrade to motorway than upgrading first to 2+1 and then to motorway in 10 years.

^ Well if you are building 2+1 roads for 10.000 aadt i agree they should rather build motorway.

Made a simple one - as you said, just to give an impression of how the national road-network is.


Note that there are also many Lv-routes that have this configuration.

It is possible to operate 2+1 on one carriageway of a future motorway. As long as you reserve space, it can be expanded to motorway standards quite easily. By the way, the only Dutch 2+1 road carries 28 000 vehicles per day.

I have noticed that 2+1 roads has oversized viaducts so they can be used also for future motorways.

2+1 roads are built when rapid increase of motor vehicle collisions is noticed. It has less to do with accessibility and prevent traffic clots.

I feel comfortable driving on a 2+1 road compared to an ordinary wide 1+1 road.

I think 2+1 is great, but sure, if the projected AADT will reach 15000+ then a motorway is the better alternative.

Some traffic problems on the motorway bypass of Sölvesborg today. A truck accident combined with Sweden Rock festival lead to several kilometres of traffic jams.

Sweden has gotten a much needed update on Google Street view! All of northern Sweden is now updated and all main roads are now included!

Just to set the mood:

Some of the roads were driven on in very snowy conditions I see. Also, notice this extremely low-budget motorway entrance/exit (not to mention the lack of hard shoulders): http://is.gd/3F2Alg + http://is.gd/yQTime

Construction start for the E22 stretch between Rolsberga and Fogdarp is seemingly set for early next year, according to the latest plans of Trafikverket. Offers will be taken in from August. This stretch was financed by regional money to get it built before 2021.
