E4 and E20 is filled with service areas, along the entire motorway routes.

This is Nyköpingsbro, my favourite stop on the way to Stockholm. All vikingline-buses stop here for about 45 min.

Final go ahead for the strech "Pålen-Tanumshede" on E6! By the year 2015 the E6 will be a highway road from Malmö to Norwegian border at Strömstad.

Great news! But the E6 starts in Trelleborg, not Malmö, which makes it even longer. It will also be the only E-route in Sweden with motorway status for its entire length in the country, altogether almost 500 km.

Another important reason was that Sweden introduced speed limits outside built-up areas the same year.
What also helped is that people that are out of their comfort zone (for instance since they need to drive on the "wrong" side of the road) take precaution. Their driving style becomes more conservative and accordingly safer. That in itself was a basis for the reduction in accidents.

And of course, it needs to be taken into account that traffic volumes were relatively low at the time. If you did the same in Britain now, it's scale would be many times of what would have been done 45 years ago.

I believe that the Eastern bypass of Helsingborg is done. Route 111. The only section that still is not open yet, is -> http://maps.google.se/maps?hl=sv&tab=wl (between Vasatorpsvägen and Ängelsholmsleden).

I wonder if this will be synchronized with the Norwegian renumbering, or will we have a situation where E 16 runs in to the less serious county road 200 in Norway.

This article says September for the part to Gardermoen, so I guess they're synchronized.
I september blir dette E16

Renumberings are fringe costs. Basically just placing some stickers.

Additionally, a new national road (Riksväg) will be created in southern Sweden between the E6 at Halmstad and the E22 at Pukavik. The road will become national road 15 (number of the current E22 until 1980). Between Markaryd and Osby the road was modernized from 2009 to 2011.

I think the national road 69 Fagersta-Falun-Rättvik is a new one, too, isn't it? As the section from Fagersta to Falun is currently länsväg 270, about 50 km will be upgraded to a riksväg.

I personally don't like this concept of 2+1-roads that they are also planning to build in Finland, at least on main routes. A good excuse for not tu build a proper motorway.

Yes but the 2+1 sections change frequently, so you don't have to wait long if you get behind a slow vehicle.

This particular section of the road 55 Norrköping-Katrineholm is not very busy.
Actually there is nothing but woods inbetween the cities, so a motorway will not be necessary.

I agree with that it is a useful solution for secondary roads as Road 55, but roads such as E4 should be full motorway because of it's importance and the frequency of long-distance-travelling, even if the AADT is 1-3 thousand cars below 10 000. In Spain most rural motorways have an AADT of just 4000-8000.

That might be one of the reasons behind the financial crisis in Spain.
