Hum, almost 1 billion for the rebuilding of that stretch, then I assume that they will do more than just ad one lane to the existing 2+1 expressway
And that´s great news! Would be interesting to see what kind of width and layout it will be? Guess we just have to wait or does anybody know?

Construction is due in 2 years, so I assume that some sort of planning process has been initiated. But no documents to be found yet.

I presume that Finland is situated north of the climatic boundary zone for oaks to grow, eventhough they have been planted in northern Sweden.

There is a significant vegetation boundary between the upland, boreal and relatively species-poor natural landscape to the north and the warmer, boreonemoral and species-rich area in south of the country.

The southernmost part of Finland is in the same zone as I presume Stockholm, and we have even a well grown planted beech forest in Raasepori. Oaks and specially lime trees grow as far north as northern Karelia and have been successfully planted, but very seldom.

E4 Sundsvall

A helicopter tour across the new E4 at Sundsvall, from south to north. It's a bit long, so you may want to browse through it. The major bridge across the fjord is at 12:20

Nice video, now you really can see how big this project is.
They have still a lot of work to do.

Yesterday the construction of the Marieholms road tunnel and Marieholms rail bridge was started in Gothenburg! The road tunnel is the second and last part of the new connection over the river in Gothenburg. The first part was the Partihallsförbindelsen which was opened to traffic in 2011.
The road tunnel will be 0,5 km long and have 3 lanes in each direction.


Blue: The new road tunnel.
Yellow: The new rail bridge.
Orange: The Partihallsförbindelsen, opened 2011.










Also yesterday, because of the almost 50.000 signatures collected from people against the congestion tax, the city council in Gothenburg held an extra meeting to discuss if there should be a referendum held to deiced if the congestion charge (which was implemented in Gothenburg this year) really should be permanent or if it simply should be scrapped! Kind of strange since it is already all in place and running... But there have obviously been a huge discontent to it among the public in and around Gothenburg. And they feel that the politicians implemented this all on their own, with out the public's support.

Anyway, the city council politicians decided to agree to the public's wishes and a referendum will be held, probably the same time as the next national elections in Sweden, September 2014.


Cost: Road tunnel 410 million euros
Rail bridge ?

Is it just me, or does that railbridge look like it's only one track? Wasted opportunity. build two while you're at it and for the love of the gods, put a bike lane and a pedestrian lane on it!

Those trees around the ramps... who are they kidding? They're trying to make it look like they're building a park when the actual effect will be increased car traffic. lame.

Also: the congestion charge is needed. Tho I'd be fine with replacing it with adding like 10 kr per hour to all surface parking in the region

Adding trees reduces pollution and noise levels.

Until there has been a referendum, there should be no congestion charge. If it affects such a large part of the population, it should be put to a vote.

Just like all the other fees in our society? I completely disagree.

The trees cut down some particles yes, but the main parts of the pollution from today's primitive cars isn't really affected. The increase in pollution from the increase in car use will completely swamp the positive effects of those few trees. To reduce noise it is far, far more effective to build screens along the motorway. They can be done in see-through materials. But trees aren't as good at breaking down noise from motorways (or airports or rail lines).

I don't really see your point. Obviously, planting trees are better than not planting trees.
