The Rotebro Link, Sweden

County road 267 in northern Stockholm is an important, busy link between the E4 and the E18. To improve the traffic flow on this section, the contractor Svevia has been hired by the Swedish Transport Administration to widen a 6 km section from one to two lanes in each direction.

The assignment also includes gradeseparated intersections, wildlife crossings, noise abatement and a separate path for pedestrians and cyclists. The overarching goal of the investment is greater accessibility and improved road safety.

The new road will open to traffic in spring 2019. According to Lennart Eriksson, Department Manager Manufacturing, the Rotebro link assignment is very much in line with Svevia’s strategy to build and maintain roads.

“From our asphalt plant at Arlanda, last year we produced and laid AG22, ABB22 and ABB16 with a 70/100 binder. Before the summer we’ll be laying a polymer-modified surface that contains Nypol 67.”
