About the Tunnel
The South Link is Swedenis largest road tunnel project and
connects two of Swedenis most heavily trafficked routes;
Essingeleden to the west and Värmdöleden to the east. Around
60 000 vehicles will be able to pass through the tunnels every
24 hours, reducing the impact on the surrounding environment
and Stockholm at large.
Grand Opening Race
The South Link will be opened for traffic on Sunday 24 October 2004,
but you can experience the tunnels first-hand before we let the
vehicles take over!
As part of the inauguration programme, Hammarby IF Athletics will
be organising the Tunnel Race on 17 October 2004. The race takes
you through all of the South Link tunnels, and those of you who
imagine them to be dark and inhospitable are in for a surprise!
INLINE SKATING - 42 KM and 12 KM
RUNNING - 12 KM
The start and finish lines will be at the Stockholm Globe Arenas
and the participants will be treated to a unique underground
experience. About 90 percent of the race course will run through
the South Link tunnels. And although the finishing line at the
Globe promises to be a magnificent experience, a number of other
exciting events are being planned along the route.
