All I need now is a video of the new stretch - preferably by ChrisZwolle

When the motorway ends the road turns into a grade seperated 2+2 road, but it's not signed as a expressway.

Good post.

Here's the project page for the last part of your journey.

http://www.trafikverket.se/Privat/Pr...atorp---Forsa/

No definite date for construction start unfortunately. But it seems that this part of RV 25 is the only part that is not 2+1 between Ljungby and Växjö.

E4 Stockholm Bypass

The Stockholm Bypass (Förbifart Stockholm) has received the official tunnel names.

The main tunnel (2x3 lanes, 16.5 km) is named the "Uppland Tunnel" in the northbound direction and "Södermanland Tunnel" in the southbound direction.

There is also a shorter tunnel north of the main tunnel, which is named Hansa Tunnel northbound and Järvafält Tunnel southbound. In addition, all tunnel ramps are also named, for a total of 16 tunnel names for the entire Stockholm Bypass project.

PDF with a map with all the names: http://www.trafikverket.se/PageFiles...tning_stor.pdf

Riksväg 50 and the Motala Bridge

Today was the inauguration and opening of the Motala Bridge and the new alignment of riksväg 50 from Mjölby to Motala.

This new alignment replaces riksväg 32 between Mjölby and Motala, and so riksväg 32 will end at Trafikplats Mjölby västra where the new riksväg 50 starts and both roads meet with the E4. The former riksväg 50 from Ödeshög to Motala has been downgraded to a secondary länsväg (which are not signposted). The former riksväg 32 share the same fate.

In total they built 28 km of new road, including 40 new bridges/overpasses of which the Motala bridge is the longest at 620 m. The road is grade-seperated all the way, and is 2+2 from Mjölby to Skänninge and then 2+1 to Motala, with the bridge being 2+2 and also having a pedestrian and bike path. The speed limit is 100 km/h and 80 km/h in Motala. The project was started in the summer of 2010 and the total cost is an estimated 1,8 billion SEK (~200 million €).

The new bridge in Motala has been planned since the 1940s and you can the see the "riksvägsreservat" (national road reserved area) quite clearly in this aerial image. Now, some 70 years years later after the initial idea, the project is finally completed.

In addition to the new road, the added a second track to the railroad going the same stretch, and commuter trains now run between Motala and Mjölby, improving the traffic quite a bit.

I will be going there this weekend for pictures and recording a driving video.

Here is a picture of the Motala bridge, seen from the Motala harbour, taken by Trafikverket officials in August:

Riksväg 50 and the Motala Bridge continued

Today I drove all the way along the new alignment of riksväg 50 and I recorded a driving video which will be uploaded as soon as I get back home to my desktop computer (editing HD videos on a Linux laptop isn't optimal :p). I took a lot of pictures in Motala, and below are a few pics. You can find them all in this album.

View of the bridge looking south:

Are any dates fixed for when they will start tolling the road (and on which side, northern or southern shore, the toll booths will be)?

I´d say Stockholm already has quite a decent motorway structure, the problem is that there are very few linkages between the outer parts of the city. It's a very centered infrastructure, all traffic has to go into downtown or on these linkages and that's the problem with Stockholm in general be it "Tunnelbanan", the railway network or the roads. One quick fix would be if they instated more ferries but in a longer run there should be bridges for all kind of traffic between places like Bromma and Hägersten.

Interesting. BTW according to our local newspaper the actual length of the bridge is 660m not 600m.

About the tolls. Discussions are going on about a 15SEK fee for cars and 100SEK for trucks.

They will probably redesign the central thoroughfare before intruducing any tolls.

The material of Trafikverket tells us the length of the bridge being 620 meters. This is measured as the distance between the abutments, according to the common practice.

They had put up electronic tolling equipment on the northern shore. It can been seen in this picture:


EDIT: There was also square plates on some signs covering what I assume to be the toll road symbol.

The driving video

Here's the driving video. It starts off at normal speed and speeds up after about 40-50 seconds. I only filmed going from Mjölby to Motala, because the sun would've been shining directly into the camera the other direction.

The new motorway section of the E22 between Rolsberga and Fogdarp will be delayed by six months (Swedish source).

From the linked source I gather there are two issues:
1. Planning process took longer than expected (yay Swedish epic planning processes).
2. Winter was longer than expected last year, delayed some stuff and since it is mid october...

There is a discussion about toll fees. Cars and motorbikes will not be required to pay.
But heavy trucks will probably be subjects to charge of 100SEK one way. (11,58 EUR)

Some haulage contractors think its too much and they say they will not use the bridge. Now the authorities of Motala (my old hometown) will rebuild the thoroughfare of central Motala to make it narrower so traffic will have to use the bridge instead.
Yeah typical SW politicians, and com'on 100kr for a few km is way to much + what about the worlds highest taxes(including insane high gas tax)?

Have the Swedes ever designated a 2+2 following a full motorway as Motorway but with a 100kph limit...IE not where there are at grade junctions or roundabouts.
