Tvärförbindelse Södertörn is planned as a 20 kilometer new road connection south of Stockholm, from road 73 at Haninge to European Highway E4/E20 at Vårby.
The road is part of the national plan for the transport system that covers the period 2014–2025.
An objective was formulated in the measure selection study carried out for Tvärförbindelse Södertörn:
"In order to ensure sustainable growth for Södertörn, physical accessibility for persons and goods will be provided, and communications improved
- Between the regional urban centres of Kungens Kurva–Skärholmen, Flemingsberg and Haninge Centrum
- Between Södertörn and the surrounding area.
Traffic solutions will be based on municipal, regional and transport policy goals."
Tvärförbindelse Södertörn was identified as an important measure in the process of attaining the objective above. It was concluded that no single measure was sufficient to solve all the problems identified in the study. Among other things, an entirely new traffic solution is needed in order to achieve the goals of improved safety, availability and accessibility. Consequently, we are currently making plans for a new road, complete with pedestrian and cycle routes, that will cross Södertörn from east to west.
An integrated solution for a new road across Södertörn will create the conditions needed for smoother and more flexible commuting to and from work, regional development and safer transportation for people and goods. We will carry out our planning and design work in close dialogue with those who are affected – namely local authorities, local residents, and other stakeholders and interested parties.
