The time-table for the HH-connection (Helsingborg-Helsingör-connection) were set by region of Skåne the reacent week, this bridge between the narrowest part of Öresund between todays Scania and Denmark has been under discussion for more than 100 years, but yet not finally approved by Sweden.

When the bridge between Malmö and Copenhagen in reality only is a bridge for the south-west part of Scania and mainly for Sweden's transit traffic, the north-west part of Scania has ofcourse no reality use of the present bridge, and the link at Helsingborg, in all times back to the Viking age at least, has been the main communication port between Denmark and Scandinavia, is ofcourse vital for Scania to have this landbased communication rapidly at place for getting whole of Scania to be seriously a part of the Öresund-region, not only the southwest part as today.

The region of Skåne ofcourse must then focus to get east of Scania into the Öresund-region along a highway all way along northern road from Kristianstad along Hässleholm to Helsingborg, and in south along Simrishamn to Malmö.

One of the big problems with the current bridge is that all transit-traffic, and this is a large majority of all the goods-traffic, now pass Scania and forcing Scania to get all the pollution from the transit traffic to Sweden. The HH-connection would share the burdon of the traffic to both sides of Öresund. Denmark will ofcourse not take any initaive in this direction, so what is discussed is only a railway-tunnel as the landbased HH-connection, which is ofcourse too weak.

The HH(Helsingborg/Helsingör)-connection has been discussed for more than hundread years but has never been a reality from swedish point of view. Meanwhile Sweden continue with it's lack of interrest for the HH-connection, Sweden let Scania be polluted by all swedish transit-traffic and not make any interrest for the vital HH-bridge to get all Scania being part of the Öresund-region. And while Scania is a part of Sweden the danes can say that this is Sweden's transit-traffic and it should go along the Scanian side of Öresund, a vital argument that cannot be used in a Scania free from Sweden...

Sweden and Stockholm show continued lack of interesst in this HH-connection which would make a boost in the Öresund-region, instead they put focus making the Stockholm-region the most attractive in northern Europe in 40 years they say...

Well this will ofcourse never happen, but shows the priority expected from the swedish and Stockholm power.., so after hundread years of waiting who think the HH-connection vital for all of Scania and to boost the Öresund-region in whole, will be a reality for another 40 years from Stockholm and Swedens perspectives?

Sweden and Stockholm will act nothing, nothing as always. Who is surprised? Leaving only one way for Scania to go, a rapid way out of Sweden !

Vimm e...? Nårra unnrar åmm vi i Skåneland klarar våss ena? Ja sär,

Nåkk e nåkk, få väkk våss i Skåneland frå Svarrje å di fjöreda i Stockholm.
