On 22nd May 2018, the first spade was put into the ground for the large project: to build a completely new 15-kilometre-long motorway, south of Kristianstad.

Now it will be a real motorway

About 150 people have worked every day to build the motorway, with Peab as the main contractor.

According to the plan, the motorway would’ve been complete in June 2021. It will now be ready for traffic as early as December 10th.

– We feel proud to be able to open the route. Now it will be a real motorway, says the Swedish Transport Administration's (Trafikverket’s) Project Manager Michael Sjöland.

Slow-moving vehicles are not allowed to drive there.

It’s the safest type of road we have, with two lanes in each direction

– It’s the safest type of road we have, with two lanes in each direction and a median barrier that separates the carriageways, he says.

There will only be a few exits and entrances.

A total of 26 bridges and underpasses have been built along the route.

We’ve also been lucky with mild winters

Why are you finished six months earlier than planned?

– We have worked hard and at the same time been modest in solving all of the problems. Everyone involved has worked together to solve the logistics as smoothly as possible. We’ve also been lucky with mild winters, says Michael Sjöland.
