Pictures from Gothenburg, SE:



Tingstadstunneln under construction, 1965



Tingstadstunneln from the south after inauguration 1968. No wonder it took about seven years (1961-1968) to finish this project.

Sweden - Finland border crossing in summer 1967, shortly before the Dagen H (3 september 1967), when Sweden switched the driving side from left to right.
At the border there were special lanes to change driving direction.
There were no border checkpoints because the Nordic Passport Union was already in force.

Interestingly the right-pointing arrow seen from the Swedish side is Finnish style (of that time), the one seen from the Finnish side is Swedish style.

I can't tell the location of the actual borderline, but surely the latter one is at least closer to Finland.

Yes there were. The passport union is not similar to the Schengen Treaty allowing people to cross to border wherever they want. There were checkpoints, but mainly for the customs operations. Later, the Swedish customs office was closed, and the remaining one in Finland was operated by both countries. The checkpoints were located a few hundred meters from the border line. Usually, the checks were random. The people crossing the border have to be able to prove their right to cross the border by some means. About any document goes, but usually opening the mouth is enough.

Opening of SS36 Milan - Giussano in 1959

Originally it was not a freeway, but it had at-grade intersections with traffic lights and even bicycle paths.

Photos of SS36 in 1993, when they were upgrading it into a freeway, by making all its junctions grade-separated
