 Norra länken is only   in length, but an eastward extension from Norrtull to Värta harbour ( ) for a total length of   is under construction which is estimated to be complete by 2015.


The tunnel in October 2009
The part of Norra länken between Karlberg and Norrtull was finished and opened in 1991. As part of the Dennis Agreement ( ), a political agreement, the construction eastward of the remaining part to Värta harbour was to be completed as well. The construction was cancelled in 1997 when the project was appealed to the Supreme Administrative Court which determined that the detail plan for the part between Norrtull and Roslagstull was in conflict with the law protecting the national city park area of Ekoparkenmarker. The political agreement was broken and it was uncertain whether the road project would be completed.

The government and Stockholm Municipalitymarker agreed in 2002 on a new alignment between Norrtull and Roslagstull. The detail plan was again appealed, but the Supreme Administrative Court rejected the appeal on February 26, 2007, and construction resumed on May 11, 2007.

Construction of the extension

The construction of the extension between Norrtull and Värta harbor is estimated to take eight years and estimated to cost 9 billion SEK. The road will mostly be placed in tunnels with entrances and exits placed at the areas of Norrtull, Roslagstull, Frescatimarker, and Värta harbor.
