E4/E20, Road changes on Essingeleden-Södra länken, Årstalänken
This autumn a number of changes will be made to Årstalänken and connecting ramps. These changes only affect vehicles travelling in the westbound direction towards E4/E20.
Årstalänken is the section of road that connects the Södra länken tunnel system to the E4/E20 motorway.
About the changes
An important change is that you will no longer to be able to use the westbound ramp from the roundabout in Årsta to access the off-ramp leading to E4/E20 in the southbound direction. Instead you will need to use a different route such as Årstabergsvägen or Åbyvägen and Västberga allé to get to E4/E20 in the southbound direction.
You will still be able to use the westbound ramp from the roundabout to get to E4/E20 in the northbound direction, towards Essingeleden.
Two important reasons for these changes:
- The present roadway design is not well adapted to the large flow of traffic from Södra länken. This results in queues and tunnel closures.
- There are traffic safety problems related to the lane changes needed to drive from the roundabout to the off-ramp leading to E4/E20 in the southbound direction.
Our work with these changes will start in November, 2020.
The road highlighted in light green is the new recommended route.
The changes will be tested
The new roadway design will be tested during a period of 6 months. If the changes improve the overall traffic situation they will be made permanent.
