At Vätternrundan we constantly strive to enhance the experience of our events, one element is the work to get even safer races. Extensive external and internal evaluations are continuously made and one area that has been clearly identified and in need of development is the part at northern Vättern. This in combination with the near future extensive redevelopment of highway 50, makes the work on finding an alternative route extra important. This new route can become a reality as early as 2020, which in addition to raising the safety level would also mean a certain extension of the route. At present, several different alternatives are being processed together with the Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket). We will keep our participants and other stakeholders informed on an ongoing basis.
