New motorway Borås – Ulricehamn (National Road 40)

New motorway between Borås and Ulricehamn

Last weekend the new 17 km long motorway between Borås and Ulricehamn was opened. On the route from Gothenburg to Stockholm there are now only 46 km left between Ulricehamn and Jönköping that are not yet converted into a motorway.

If you are planning to drive from Gothenburg to Stockholm, we recommend you to take advantage of this new connection: Take the National Road 40 (riksväg 40) via Borås, Ulricehamn and Jönköping, and then proceed on the E4 to Stockholm. This route is faster and safer than the northern route via Örebro (E20).
