eRoadArlanda, a Swedish inaugurated the first road of its kind to allow
both commercial and passenger vehicles to be recharged while driving.

The solution, which is both sustainable and cost-effective, will allow existing public roads to be electrified and help to create a future of fossil-free road transport.

One of the most important issues of our time is the question of how to make fossil-free road transportation a reality. We now have a solution that will make this possible, which is amazing. Sweden is at the cutting edge of this technology, which we now hope to introduce in other areas of the country and the world," says Hans Säll, Chairman of the eRoadArlanda consortium and Business Development Director at NCC.

Tomas Eneroth, Swedish Minister for Infrastructure, and Lena Erixon, Director General of the Swedish Transport Administration, were on hand at the formal inauguration ceremony for the road.

“It is important to break new ground when it comes to climate-smart road transport. That’s why the Swedish Transport Administration supports innovative development projects that contribute to long-term, sustainable solutions," says Lena Erixon, Director General of the Swedish Transport Administration.

Approximately two kilometers of electric rail have been installed along public road 893, between the Arlanda Cargo Terminal and the Rosersberg logistics area outside Stockholm. The electrified road works by transferring energy to the vehicle from a rail in the road through a movable arm. The arm detects the location of the rail in the road and as long as the vehicle is above the rail, the contact will be in a lowered position. The electrified road will be used by electric trucks developed as part of the project.
