United Kingdom

Holyhead - A55 ((A55(M)) (Primary Route) - Chester - M56 - Warrington - M62 - Manchester - M62 - Leeds - M62 - Doncaster - M180 - A180(Primary Route) - Immingham - A180 (Secondary Route) Cleethorpes - no ferry (North Sea)(The Great North Sea)

There is now no ferry from Immingham to Amsterdam (when E 22 was first designated, Immingham had service to Amsterdam). The best alternative is Kingston upon HullRotterdam.


No ferry - Amsterdam - A10 - A8 - Amsterdam - A7 - Groningen - A7 - Nieuweschans


Bunde - A 280 - Autobahndreieck Bunde - A 31 - Autobahndreieck Leer - A 28 - Autobahndreieck Oldenburg West - A 28 - Autobahndreieck Stuhr- A 1 - Bremen - A 1 - Hamburg -A 1 - Autobahnkreuz Lübeck - Bundesautobahn 20 A 20 - Autobahndreieck Vorpommern B 96- Stralsund - Sassnitz - ferry line run by Scandlines via the Baltic Sea to Sweden

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 will be built around 2020. The E22 would then use the planned tunnel under the Elbe at Drochtersen.


Karlshamn - Karlskrona - Kalmar - Norrköping - (no ferry) (Baltic Sea)

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.


Ventspils - A10 - Riga - A6 - Jēkabpils - A12 - Rēzekne - A12 - Zilupe


Zasitino - M9 - Velikie Luki - M9 - Moscow - M7 - Vladimir - M7 - Nizhniy Novgorod - M7 - Kazan - M7 - Yelabuga - Izhevsk - Igra - P242 - Perm - P242 (Asia) - Yekaterinburg - P351 - Tyumen - P402 - Ishim

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 (), and the road is a bad gravel road around that area. Google Maps shows the E 22 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 E 22 follows the Trans-Siberian Railway.
