Sätaröd-Vä, Sweden

European route 22 (E22) is no less than 5,320 km long, from Holyhead in the UK via the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden and Latvia to Ishim in Russia. The part of the E22 that runs through Sweden plays a major role for the country’s southern region, not least because of the link to the Copenhagen area. The problem is that the road is very busy and accident-prone, and is also close to residential areas that are affected by noise.
