Swedish national road

Swedish national road

. Roads with lower numbers are in southern Sweden, and roads with higher numbers are in northern Sweden. There are many cases where two or more routes in this system share the same physical road for a considerable distance, giving the country several kilometers of double-numbered road.

The network of national roads covers all of Sweden, and has a total length of convert|8769|km|mi|0|abbr=on (not including E-roads. The figure is shorter than before, since road 45 is now E45). The only county that doesn't have a riksväg is Gotland County. The national roads are public roads owned by the Government of Sweden and administered by the Swedish Road Administration. They get a high priority for snow plowing during the winter.

The roads' number signs are rectangular with a blue background, white numbers, and a white border.
