The E6 in Stenungsund is now open again.

The wait is over and today, July 5, E6 in Stenungsund has reopened, nine months after being destroyed by a landslide.

During the reconstruction, the section between Stora Högamotet and Lyckornamotet was closed, and traffic was diverted to E45 and Route 44, where the detour took an additional 45 minutes.

Before the landslide, E6 handled 20,000 vehicles daily, and now its capacity is the same. All exits and entrances are open except for Ucklumsvägen, which remains closed.

The road was restored faster than expected. Early forecasts suggested the renovation would take over a year, but it was completed sooner.
After just over nine months of repair work, the road is now open for use.

The E6 was damaged by a landslide on September 23, 2023, in Stenungsund, north of Gothenburg. This section, a key route between Gothenburg and Oslo, suffered significant damage, including road collapse and nearby building damage.

The E6 is one of Europe’s main transport routes, starting at the ferry crossing in Trelleborg and ending in Kirkenes, Norway, near the Russian border. It is a crucial transport corridor connecting Sweden with Norway, essential for passenger and freight traffic in the region.
