Sweden: overtaking ban for lorries
From January 20, lorries with a GVW over 3.5 tonnes are forbidden from overtaking other vehicles on the E4 and E4/E20 motorways between Södertälje and Arlanda. The purpose of the ban is to improve road safety and accessibility for emergency vehicles.
The overtaking ban, already in place between Arlanda and Glädje and between Hallunda and Moraberg, has been extended for the entire section from Södertälje South to the Arlanda. The motorway section affected by the overtaking ban has thus increased by nearly 50 km.
