Sinkhole on the E4 north of Stockholm – lanes closed

– It is a sinkhole that is quite deep. We’re talking meters, says Trafikverket’s press manager Bengt Olsson Tv4 The News.

It is still unclear what caused the sinkhole. According to the Swedish Transport Administration’s previous forecast, the problem would be solved by ten o’clock, but it has been postponed until twelve o’clock.

– We are now waiting for asphalt to fix the hole, says Katarina Wolffram, press communicator at the Swedish Transport Administration to SVT.
