Elbe Crossing

There are currently plans to reroute the E22 between Lübeck and Westerstede, to go north of Hamburg and Bremen over the A20, when this new motorway is built after 2020. The E22 would then use the planned tunnel under the Elbe at Drochtersen/Glückstadt.[citation needed]

 Sweden

Norrköping (58°36′N 16°12′E / 58.600°N 16.200°E / 58.600; 16.200)

In Sweden, E-Roads do not have national numbers. There is currently no ferry across the Baltic Sea between Norrköping and Ventspils. The best ferry alternative is from Nynäshamn to Ventspils. The line is run by Scandlines.

 Latvia

Ventspils Ferry Sign.svg (57°23′26″N 21°34′24″E / 57.39056°N 21.57333°E / 57.39056; 21.57333)

 Russia

Between Kazan and Igra, the road goes the detour over Yelabuga, because the shortest route between Kazan and Igra uses a ferry over the Vyatka River (56°35′31″N 50°42′32″E / 56.592°N 50.709°E / 56.592; 50.709), and the road is a bad gravel road around that area. Google Maps shows the to use the ferry, but that is wrong; the UN convention lists Yelabuga along a paved road without any ferry. Both routes are visible in Google Streetview. A much used shortcut is Izhevsk - Votkinsk - Perm.

Between Perm and Ishim, the follows the Trans-Siberian Railway.
