I agree... but the article focus more on "driving culture" rather than in no queues either infrastructure.

Just... "lessons to learn"

There is just one "freeway" crossing the city. And it's 70km/h and quite congested. Time for a bypass perhaps...

Won't happen. There's already a kind of quasi-bypass stretching from Mölndal in the south to Hisingen in the west (Söderleden + Västerleden), the road is of motorway standard minus the signage and continues from the Volvo car factory on as ordinary highway to E6 north of Gothenburg. An eastern bypass would be vetoed down by the municipalities concerned if it was to be built over ground ( across lakes, gardens, steep granite hills etc) and I don't believe Trafikverket nor any other actor are prepared to invest in a tunnel solution given the hideous amount of SEK such solution would require.

GBG should just go the yanky way and just expand E6, it cost a lot less.

^Hopefully it'll be stopped and several streetbridges north-south built instead, leaving a lot of money for transit (and actually improving traffic in the long run instead of effin it up worse).

So I'm frequenting the highways of Scania a lot and the last few years traffic has begun to run a bit smother during peak hours thanks to no-passing-signs for trucks during peak hours as can be seen in this pic below.
Is this used in other parts of the country too?

The government wants to complete a full motorway ring around Stockholm and just promised 2 bln SEK for that purpose. The Eastern Connection (Östliga förbindelsen, previously planned as Österleden) is to be in form of a tunnel between the Northern Link and Southern Link.

That's part of the new national transportation plan 2014-2025. That's 522 billion SEK of projects (€ 58 billion).

As much as I dislike the socialist, just to get rid of these fools sitting there now I gladly suffer trough 4 years of tax and waste red government.

The next gov will change this plan anyway so this means nothing really...

True. Though all this money is divided across many years and all of the country. I guess this project in Stockholm is the most spectacular. At least among the road projects, and among these that were not discussed here yet, but I might have missed something

I've browsed through the projects and I haven't seen anything out of the ordinary that wasn't already planned.

There are several new motorway projects, mostly E22 in the deep south and E20 east of Göteborg. But these are not new projects.

A "mötesfri väg", does this imply only a median barrier, or also grade-separation like "planskilt". There are many "mötesfri" projects.

Mötesfri means median barrier. It can also imply grade seperation, but not necessarily.

RV 70, Borlänge

A new four-lane segment of Riksväg 70 is planned on the southeastern side of Borlänge.



It makes you wonder if they have a bypass planned for Borlänge. This project will direct traffic straight into the city like today. Although it takes just two roundabouts to get onto RV 69 to Falun.

There are several expressways around the inner city, one going along a river straight to the center. Besides there is a huge amount of expressways in the suburbs and the interchanges are impressive. I also count expressways

Wow what an investment!! All those projects just in Stockholm... I wish finnish politicians took the same policy... For example in Helsinki there are no road widenings going on at least in 2 decades except Kehä III.
