European route E4
European route E 4 passes from north to south through Sweden from the border with Finland, with a total length of 1,590 kilometres. The Finnish part lies within Tornio in northern Finland, is only 1 kilometre long; the Swedish part traverses most of Sweden except the extreme north and the west coast region, is considered the highway backbone of Sweden, since it passes in the vicinity of many of its largest cities and through the capital Stockholm. In particular, it is the mainline road used by most vehicle traffic, both personal cars and freight trailers, between the north and southern Sweden or beyond. From Haparanda on the Finnish border, it stretches south along the Gulf of Bothnia to Gävle on a more inland route southwards, it ends at the port for the ferry to Helsingør in Denmark. The route intersects with European route E6 just outside Helsingborg, which continues to Trelleborg on the southern coast of Sweden. Under the new system of European routes it was planned to have been a part of E 55, but it remains in the pre-1992 designation within Sweden, because the expenses connected with re-signing this long road portion would be too large.
Besides the signs along the road, there are thousands of signs in cities, showing how to reach the E 4 road. The road is now authorized as E 4 by the relevant authority, not as E 55. North of Gävle the road is of mixed standard. Depending on the fashion at the time of construction it is either a single standard carriageway road 8–13 metres wide, or a 2+1 road, a 13–14 metres wide road with two lanes in one direction and one in the other with a steel wire barrier in between, or sometimes a motorway with two lanes in each direction. North of Sundsvall, the road passes through several of the larger cities as city streets. South of Gävle, the road becomes an continuous motorway, with the only non-motorway part being a 32 km long section past Ljungby a 2+1 limited-access road. Upgrade to motorway standard will start in 2018. With the exception of the Ljungby bypass, the final stretch of the motorway to be opened was the road between Uppsala and Mehedeby, inaugurated on October 17, 2007. South of Gävle, the speed limit is 120 km/h on 30 % of the road.
North of Gävle there are varying speed limits, with 90 km/h, 100 km/h and 110 km/h as the most common. The speed limits on the main roads in Sweden were changed on many stretches in October 2008, which saw the introduction of the 120 km/h limit; the E 4 is the fastest road to go from Germany/Denmark to areas north of the Arctic Circle, including places in Norway such as Tromsø or the North Cape. The route passes through or nearby the cities Tornio, Luleå, Piteå, Skellefteå, Umeå, Örnsköldsvik, Härnösand, Hudiksvall, Söderhamn, Gävle, Stockholm, Södertälje, Nyköping, Norrköping, Linköping, Jönköping, Värnamo and Helsingborg
In the field of road transport, an interchange is a road junction that uses grade separation, one or more ramps, to permit traffic on at least one highway to pass through the junction without interruption from other crossing traffic streams. It differs from a standard intersection. Interchanges are always used when at least one road is a controlled-access highway or a limited-access divided highway, though they are sometimes used at junctions between surface streets. Note: The descriptions of interchanges apply to countries where vehicles drive on the right side of the road. For left-side driving, layout of the junctions is the only left/right is reversed. A freeway junction or highway interchange or motorway junction is a type of road junction linking one controlled-access highway to another, to other roads, or to a rest area or motorway service area. In the UK, most junctions are numbered sequentially. In the US, interchanges are either numbered by interchange number. A highway ramp or slip road is a short section of road that allows vehicles to enter or exit a controlled-access highway.
A directional ramp tends toward the desired direction of travel: A ramp that makes a left turn exits from the left side of the roadway. Left directional ramps are uncommon, as the left lane is reserved for high-speed through traffic. Ramps for a right turn are always right directional ramps. A non-directional ramp goes opposite to the desired direction of travel. Many loop ramps are non-directional. A semi-directional ramp exits in a direction opposite from the desired direction of travel turns toward the desired direction. Many flyover ramps are semi-directional. A U-turn ramp leaves the road in one direction, turns over or under it, rejoins in the opposite direction. Weaving is an undesirable situation where traffic veering right and left must cross paths within a limited distance, to merge with traffic on the through lane; the German Autobahn system has Autobahn-to-Autobahn interchanges of two types: a four-way interchange, the Autobahnkreuz, where two motorways cross. Some on-ramps have a ramp meter, a dedicated mid-ramp traffic light that controls the flow of entering vehicles.
A complete interchange has enough ramps to provide access from any direction of any road in the junction to any direction of any other road in the junction. A complete interchange between a freeway and another road requires at least four ramps. Complete interchanges between two freeways have at least eight ramps, as having fewer would reduce capacity and increase weaving. Using U-turns, the number for two freeways can be reduced to six, by making cars that want to turn left either pass by the other road first make a U-turn and turn right, or turn right first and make a U-turn. Depending on the interchange type and the connectivity offered other numbers of ramps may be used. For example, if a highway interchanges with a highway containing a collector/express system, additional ramps can be used to link the interchanging highway with the collector and express lanes respectively. For highways with high-occupancy vehicle lanes, ramps can be used to service these carriageways directly, thereby increasing the number of ramps used.
An incomplete interchange has at least one or more missing ramps that prevent access to at least one direction of another road in the junction from any other road in the junction. A cloverleaf interchange is a two-level, four-way interchange where all turns across opposing traffic are handled by non-directional loop ramps. Assuming right-handed traffic, to go left vehicles first cross over or under the target route bear right onto a curved ramp that turns 270 degrees, merging onto the target route from the right, crossing the route just departed; these loop ramps produce the namesake cloverleaf shape. Two major advantages of cloverleaves are that they require only one bridge which makes such junctions inexpensive as long as land is plentiful, that they do not require any traffic signals to operate. However, weaving is a major shortcoming of cloverleaves, as the four total offramps and onramps are present, merge on the main routes; the capacity of this design is comparatively low. Cloverleaves use a considerable area of land, are more found along older highways, in rural areas and within cities with low population densities.
A variant design separates all turning traffic into a parallel carriageway to minimize the problem of weaving. Collector and distributor roads are similar, but are separated from the main carriageway by a divider, such as a guard rail or Jersey barrier. A stack interchange is a four-way interchange whereby a semi-directional left turn and a directional right turn are both available. Access to both turns is provided by a single offramp. Assuming right-handed driving, in order to cross over incoming traffic and go left, vehicles first exit onto an off-ramp from the rightmost lane. After demerging from right-turning traffic, they complete their left turn by crossing both highways on a flyover ramp or underpass; the penultimate step is a merge with the right-turn on-ramp traffic from the opposite quadrant of the interchange. An onramp merges both streams o
2+1 road is a specific category of three-lane road, consisting of two lanes in one direction and one lane in the other, alternating every few kilometres, separated with a steel cable barrier. The second lane allows faster-moving traffic to overtake slower vehicles at regular intervals. Traditional roads of at least 13 metres width can be converted to 2+1 roads and reach near-motorway safety levels at a much lower cost than an actual conversion to motorway or dual carriageway. In the Republic of Ireland, a 2+1 road was trialled on a short section of the N20 near Mallow, County Cork and the N2 near Castleblayney, County Monaghan. Following the pilot the National Roads Authority announced in July 2007 that 2+1 roads were unsuitable and that new lower capacity trunk routes would instead be built as 2+2 roads – at grade dual-carriageways with a narrow median and no hard shoulder. In Sweden, many 13-metre-wide roads have been built in the period 1955–1980; these have two 3.5-metre-wide lanes, two 3-metre-wide shoulders, in the beginning planned as emergency strip, due to the relative unreliability of autos of that period.
Around 1990, the idea emerged to have 2 +1 lane. This would be a cheap way of increasing traffic safety, since these roads have had a bad safety record; the width invites high speeds. Some people were, for example, overtaking against meeting traffic assuming meeting cars would go to the side; the roads are a little narrow for 3 lanes. It turned out that not only did safety improve, but it was easier to overtake than before as the 2-lane sections provide safe overtaking opportunities. After the year 2000, more than 1,000 km of roads in Sweden have been converted from wide ordinary roads into 2+1-road, all with barriers; until the roads had the original 90 km/h speed limit in use on most highways. As a result of this, many people drove at 90 km/h at 1-lane parts but 110 km/h at 2-lane parts, this being the speed limit on motorways; the speed limit has now been changed to 100 km/h with a notably smoother traffic flow. In Portugal, there are plenty of 2+1 roads; every national road in the country has a 2+1 profile, but the biggest part is located on the north, because of the hills.
One example of this is the N2 road on Portugal, which goes from Faro to Chaves Also, this type of road isn't used on parts roads that have a village near, except in the Lisbon District, which most of them have that profile as well. In Portugal, there are 4 types of roads: a national road which sometimes contains the 2+1 profile, an complementary route, which always contains the 2+1 profile, except inside villages, a principal route which either contains the 2+1 profile or the 2+2 profile and a highway which has its own profiles, like 2+2, 3+3 or 4+4; the "2+1-System" refers to expressways with three lanes on a single carriageway where bypassing on the lane of the opposite direction is prohibited so that speed restriction is not required to increase safety. These expressways are grade-separated with a design speed of 100 to 120 km/h and the side of two lanes alternates about every 1.5 to 2 kilometres. In hilly country the uphill direction is the one with two lanes to allow overtaking of heavy, slow vehicles.
In many cases there is no median barrier or it consists of concrete blocks – additional safety measures are needed near the end of the two lane section where some motorists tend to pull in late so that a longer no-traffic section needs to be inserted on the middle lane. After some good experiences with test roads the system has been used in places where the amount of traffic does not justify construction of a dual carriageway expressway but remote rural areas should be connected to major towns with a high speed road. Existing examples are B 1, B 4 near Uelzen, B 16, B 20, B 31n near Stockach, B 33, B 54, B 56n, B 67 between Bocholt and Rhede, B 72, B 210, B 300, B 482; the first 2+1 road in Finland was opened in 1991 on Finnish national road 4 between Järvenpää and Mäntsälä, since upgraded to a motorway. Since numerous 2+1 roads have been built into the national road network, they resemble motorways in that they are although not always limited-access roads and have no at-grade interchanges.
In mid-1990s, 2+1 roads with traffic separators were introduced. In 2006, there were 440 km of 2+1 roads, e.g. along road 3 and road 4. However, they weren't that much of a panacea: interchanges made the roads much more expensive than planned and confusing to drivers. Thus, new construction halted and only 2+2 roads with traffic separators were built; these require more widening of the road. Some of Federal Roads use scheme 2+1. Length of overtaking sections is 400 to 3,000 metres. Unlike western countries all of Russian 2+1 roads are not equipped with barriers yet; the most well-known example of 2 +1 is M-10 road section between Novgorod oblast. This is popular type of roads in Krasnodar Kraj and at Sakhalin Island; the construction of 2+1 roads in Estonia first started in autumn 2016, when a contract for a reconstruction of a 9-kilometer section of the national road 4 between Ääsmäe and Kohatu into a 2+1 road was signed. The road is being reconstructed as a 15-metre-wide 2+1 road, equipped
Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and the most populous urban area in the Nordic countries. The city stretches across fourteen islands. Just outside the city and along the coast is the island chain of the Stockholm archipelago; the area has been settled since the Stone Age, in the 6th millennium BC, was founded as a city in 1252 by Swedish statesman Birger Jarl. It is the capital of Stockholm County. Stockholm is the cultural, media and economic centre of Sweden; the Stockholm region alone accounts for over a third of the country's GDP, is among the top 10 regions in Europe by GDP per capita. It is an important global city, the main centre for corporate headquarters in the Nordic region; the city is home to some of Europe's top ranking universities, such as the Stockholm School of Economics, Karolinska Institute and Royal Institute of Technology. It hosts the annual Nobel Prize ceremonies and banquet at the Stockholm Concert Hall and Stockholm City Hall. One of the city's most prized museums, the Vasa Museum, is the most visited non-art museum in Scandinavia.
The Stockholm metro, opened in 1950, is well known for the decor of its stations. Sweden's national football arena is located north of the city centre, in Solna. Ericsson Globe, the national indoor arena, is in the southern part of the city; the city was the host of the 1912 Summer Olympics, hosted the equestrian portion of the 1956 Summer Olympics otherwise held in Melbourne, Australia. Stockholm is the seat of the Swedish government and most of its agencies, including the highest courts in the judiciary, the official residencies of the Swedish monarch and the Prime Minister; the government has its seat in the Rosenbad building, the Riksdag is seated in the Parliament House, the Prime Minister's residence is adjacent at Sager House. Stockholm Palace is the official residence and principal workplace of the Swedish monarch, while Drottningholm Palace, a World Heritage Site on the outskirts of Stockholm, serves as the Royal Family's private residence. After the Ice Age, around 8,000 BC, there were many people living in what is today the Stockholm area, but as temperatures dropped, inhabitants moved south.
Thousands of years as the ground thawed, the climate became tolerable and the lands became fertile, people began to migrate back to the North. At the intersection of the Baltic Sea and lake Mälaren is an archipelago site where the Old Town of Stockholm was first built from about 1000 CE by Vikings, they had a positive trade impact on the area because of the trade routes they created. Stockholm's location appears in Norse sagas as Agnafit, in Heimskringla in connection with the legendary king Agne; the earliest written mention of the name Stockholm dates from 1252, by which time the mines in Bergslagen made it an important site in the iron trade. The first part of the name means log in Swedish, although it may be connected to an old German word meaning fortification; the second part of the name means islet, is thought to refer to the islet Helgeandsholmen in central Stockholm. According to Eric Chronicles the city is said to have been founded by Birger Jarl to protect Sweden from sea invasions made by Karelians after the pillage of Sigtuna on Lake Mälaren in the summer of 1187.
Stockholm's core, the present Old Town was built on the central island next to Helgeandsholmen from the mid-13th century onward. The city rose to prominence as a result of the Baltic trade of the Hanseatic League. Stockholm developed strong economic and cultural linkages with Lübeck, Gdańsk, Visby and Riga during this time. Between 1296 and 1478 Stockholm's City Council was made up of 24 members, half of whom were selected from the town's German-speaking burghers; the strategic and economic importance of the city made Stockholm an important factor in relations between the Danish Kings of the Kalmar Union and the national independence movement in the 15th century. The Danish King Christian II was able to enter the city in 1520. On 8 November 1520 a massacre of opposition figures called the Stockholm Bloodbath took place and set off further uprisings that led to the breakup of the Kalmar Union. With the accession of Gustav Vasa in 1523 and the establishment of a royal power, the population of Stockholm began to grow, reaching 10,000 by 1600.
The 17th century saw Sweden grow into a major European power, reflected in the development of the city of Stockholm. From 1610 to 1680 the population multiplied sixfold. In 1634, Stockholm became the official capital of the Swedish empire. Trading rules were created that gave Stockholm an essential monopoly over trade between foreign merchants and other Swedish and Scandinavian territories. In 1697, Tre Kronor was replaced by Stockholm Palace. In 1710, a plague killed about 20,000 of the population. After the end of the Great Northern War the city stagnated. Population growth halted and economic growth slowed; the city was in shock after having lost its place as the capital of a Great power. However, Stockholm maintained its role as the political centre of Sweden and continued to develop culturally under Gustav III. By the second half of the 19th century, Stockholm had regained its leading economic role. New industries emerged and Stockholm was transformed into an important trade and service centre as well as a key gateway point within Sweden.
The population grew during this time through immigration. At the end
European route E18
European route E18 runs from Craigavon in Northern Ireland to Saint Petersburg in Russia, passing through Scotland, Norway and Finland. It is about 1,890 kilometres in length. Although the designation implies the possibility of a through journey, this is no longer practical as there are no direct car ferry crossings between the United Kingdom and Norway; the route starts in Northern Ireland and runs from Craigavon – Belfast – Larne to Scotland: Stranraer and Galloway – Gretna – England via the – Carlisle to Newcastle. As is normal for European routes in the United Kingdom, it is not signposted as such.: Craigavon - Belfast: Belfast: Belfast -: -: - Larne: Larne - Cairnryan: Stranraer -: - Anglo-Scottish border: Anglo-Scottish border - Carlisle: Carlisle - Newcastle upon Tyne There are no ferries from Newcastle to Norway. Freight-only ferries may operate from other United Kingdom ports to Norway or Denmark, but for car journeys the only practical route is a crossing to France, Belgium or the Netherlands, followed by a road journey through Germany and Denmark, a ferry crossing from there to Norway.
The route continues as a motorway from Kristiansand in Norway. E18 is connected with the E39 Ferry to Denmark; the ferry runs from Kristansand to Hirtshals, takes about 3 hours and 15 minutes, is operated by Color Line. In Norway, the E18 has a length of 415 kilometres, it runs Kristiansand – Arendal – Porsgrunn – Larvik – Sandefjord – Tønsberg – Horten – Drammen – Oslo – Ås – Askim – Ørje. A flyover carrying the E18 Holmestrand bypass, opened in 2001 collapsed in February 2015 following a landslip, necessitating its demolition. From Ørje, the E18 crosses the border into Sweden at Töcksfors, it has a length of 510 kilometres. It runs Töcksfors – Karlstad – Örebro – Västerås – Stockholm / Kapellskär; the connection over the Baltic Sea is from Stockholm or Kapellskär, in Sweden, to Turku or Naantali, in Finland, using by ferries operated by Silja Line, Viking Line or Finnlines. It is possible to take a direct route to Helsinki. In theory it is possible to cross the sea via Åland and the Åboland islands by island hopping over bridges, by cable ferries and ferries along the Archipelago Ring Road, but this route is not signposted as being part of the E18.
In Finland the E18 goes from Åland through southern Finland by way of Turku/Naantali – Salo – Vihti – Espoo – Porvoo – Loviisa – Kotka – Hamina – Vaalimaa till the border with Russia. Crossing the border to Russia used to require queuing as the volume of traffic using it increased; the situation has since 2009 improved thanks to increased capacity, a new parking lot constructed by 2016 is expected to solve the problem for good. In Russia, E18 goes along the M10 highway from Finnish border to Saint Petersburg; the stretch of M10 between Saint Petersburg and the Finnish border will be redesignated to A181 by 2018. The route runs through northwestern Leningrad Oblast and through sparsely populated areas. Since 2003, after opening of Vyborg bypass E18 does not go through Vyborg, though it did. Near Saint Petersburg the route runs through suburbs, such as Olgino. E18 terminates at the western border of Saint Petersburg. There are plans to expand the road from one to three lanes in each direction because of the increasing volume of traffic.
In 2012 the highway will be connected with the Western Rapid Diameter near Beloostrov by expanded existing junction of M10 with the Zelenogorsk highway. It is to be a new terminus of E18. Media related to E 18 at Wikimedia Commons Queue situation at the Finnish/Russian border
Dagens Nyheter, abbreviated DN, is a daily newspaper in Sweden. It is published in aspires to full national and international coverage. Dagens Nyheter was founded by Rudolf Wall in December 1864; the first issue was published on 23 December 1864. During its initial period the paper was published in the morning. In 1874 the paper became a joint stock company, its circulation in 1880 was 15,000 copies. In the 1890s, Wall left Dagens Nyheter and soon after, the paper became the organ of the Liberal Party. From 1946 to 1959 Herbert Tingsten was the executive editor; the newspaper is owned by the Bonnier Group. Dagens Nyheter operates from the so-called "DN-skrapan" in Stockholm; this was designed by the architect Paul Hedqvist. It has 27 floors, none of which are underground. In 1996, the entire enterprise moved to its current location on Gjörwellsgatan, adjacent to the old tower; the newspaper Expressen owned by the Bonnier Group, is located in this building as well. Opinion leaders choose Dagens Nyheter as the venue for publishing major opinion editorials.
The stated position of the editorial page is "independently liberal". However, it left its formal alliance with the liberal establishment in the country in 1972. In the 1960s the circulation of Dagens Nyheter was much higher than that of other Swedish dailies; the paper has the largest circulation among the Swedish morning newspapers followed by Göteborgs-Posten and Svenska Dagbladet, is the only morning newspaper, distributed to subscribers across the whole country. In 2001 its circulation was 361,000 copies; the 2004 circulation of the paper was 363,000 copies. The circulation of the paper was 363,100 copies in weekdays in 2005 and had dropped to 292,300 copies in 2010. In 2013, the print edition of Dagens Nyheter had a circulation of 282,800 copies, reaching an approximate 758,000 persons every day; the web edition, dn.se, had on average 1.5 million unique visitors per week during 2013.

Sollentuna Municipality is a municipality in Stockholm County in east central Sweden, north of Stockholm. Its seat of local government is located in Tureberg, a part of the Stockholm urban area. Sollentuna borders the municipalities of Solna, Stockholm, Järfälla, Upplands Väsby, Täby and Danderyd in clockwise order starting to the south. Sollentuna municipality was founded in conjunction with the reform of local government in Sweden in 1863. However, its boundaries are equivalent to those of Sollentuna Parish, which dates back to the 12th century. Well into the 20th century, Sollentuna was a predominantly rural area. Modern Sollentuna evolved around the railway between Uppsala and Stockholm, inaugurated in 1866. Five of the eight districts that make up the municipality today correspond to railway stations, now operated by Stockholm commuter rail system. From south to north: Helenelund, Tureberg, Häggvik and Rotebro. Viby is an extension of Norrviken and the two remaining districts— Edsberg and Sjöberg—are found along the road to Danderyd.
Other roads into Sollentuna includes the road from Kallhäll to Rotebro and the E 4 motorway that approximates the same route as the railway. Sollentuna received the title of a merchant town in 1944. Köping status was made obsolete by the municipal reform of 1971. On the 31st of December 2017 the number of people with a foreign background was 23 284, or 32.41% of the population. On the 31st of December 2002 the number of residents with a foreign background was 12 443, or 21.26% of the population. On 31 December 2017 there were 71 848 residents in Sollentuna, of which 17 657 people were born in a country other than Sweden. Divided by country in the table below - the Nordic countries as well as the 12 most common countries of birth outside of Sweden for Swedish residents have been included, with other countries of birth bundled together by continent by Statistics Sweden. Sollentuna Municipality has a municipal assembly with 61 members elected by proportional representation through municipal elections, held in conjunction with the national parliamentary elections every four years.
The assembly elects a municipal board, the municipality's main governing body, chaired by the Mayor. The current mayor is Henrik Thunes, of the Moderate Party. In the 2018 municipal elections, the seats in the Council are divided in the following way: In the 2014 municipal elections, the seats in the Council are divided in the following way: In the 2010 municipal elections, the seats in the Council are divided in the following way: In the 2006 municipal elections, the seats in the Council are divided in the following way: In the 2002 municipal elections, the seats in the Council are divided in the following way: Urban Gibson Carl-Erik Nilsson Sven Olle Isidor Persson Jan-Olov Sundström Gun Blomberg Christina Naess Torbjörn Rosdahl Douglas Lithborn Anna Lena Johansson 2015-09-17- Henrik Thunes Sollentuna is served by the Stockholm public transport system. Stockholm commuter rail have five stations within the municipality. There is an extensive SL bus network. Since 1995 the bulk of the built-up area of the municipality is statistically counted to the multimunicipal city of Stockholm.
A few houses on the eastern border are in Täby urban area. Sjöberg is constituting a locality of its own; the municipality is subdivided into the following districts with population as of 31 December 2011: Tureberg, 15,650 inhabitants Rotebro, 8 802 Helenelund, 11,100 Edsberg, 9,208 Viby, 5,794 Sjöberg, 4,627 Häggvik, 4,717 Norrviken, 3,335 Vaxmora, 2,517 Järvafältet, 37 Rest, 104 Central to the landscape of Sollentuna are the rather big lakes Norrviken and Edsviken—the latter a bay of the Baltic Sea. Edsviken and Norrviken are popular lakes for ice tour skating during the winter; the municipality plows a 15 km long skating track on Norrviken. Note that Norrviken is the name of a district at the western shore of the Norrviken lake. Other lakes: Fjäturen Ravalen Rösjön Väsjön Översjön SnugganDjupan The municipality is twinned with: Hvidovre in Denmark Saue in Estonia Tuusula in Finland Oppegård in Norway Edsbacka krog, located by Edsbacka lake and founded in 1634, was the only Swedish restaurant with two stars in the Michelin Guide until it closed in February 2010.
Now the site have a less fancy restaurant called Edsbacka Wärdshus. Edsbergs slott was built in rococo 1760, its 400 km² can be rented. Probable burial mound of King Agne from the 5th century. Sollentunavallen is the biggest playing field, it consists of two fields. The main arena is for football and athletics. Alongside it there's a field with artificial grass, used for bandy during the winter season; the following sports clubs are located in Sollentuna Municipality: Sollentuna Volleybollklubb Rotebro IS FF Sollentuna FK Konståkningsklubben Sollentuna Turebergs FK Helenelunds IK Sollentuna HC SKIFTAs of June 2013 there were 57 sports clubs in Sollentuna.
