Alnarp Interchange, E6/E20
The Alnarp Interchange, situated immediately south of Åkarp, will require extensive works. When the railway is lowered and the track area is widened to accommodate the four tracks, the motorway bridge will have to be converted.
During the work on the bridge, the motorway will be closed on two occasion. The first part of the conversion of the bridge, in october 2018, the motorway was closed for 12 days. During the next part of the conversion, in the spring of 2020, the motorway will be closed for 2-3 weeks.
During the close down the traffic will be diverted on to other roads in the area. Access roads to and from the motorway will also be affected during the construction period. During the project, temporary rail tracks will bypass the interchange in order to maintain traffic on the stretch during the entire construction period. This will have an impact on speed for both rail and road traffic.
The new motorway bridge will be built in three parts: one bridge for the temporary tracks, one for the four new tracks and one bridge over the exit ramp.
