Have I understood this correctly - the film people wanted to recreate mid-60s street scenes with driving on the left? So they would have to close off a fair part of central Stockholm streets and bridges to create the closed set extending for quite a distance to ensure the background traffic matched the foreground. Plus convert all the road signs, markings and traffic lights etc. A big project with a lot of co-operation and disruption (even if the soft light suggests early morning or evening). I'm impressed.

Yes, I thought the same thing untill I realized it was old stock footage...

In this scene you can see that the camera follows the trolley bus, suggesting that this is stock footage from a film about transportation or simillar. The main character Cornelis has been edited in making it look like he is just casually walking by.

Clever technique. Stock footage would date to 1966 or thereabouts from the cars and the Corsair advert on the bus? When was the changeover to driving on right - 1967?

Yes, 3 September 1967 to be exact. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dagen_H

Thanks - interesting. Says that changeover meant "Trams in Stockholm were withdrawn and replaced by buses", so confirms the extensive use of stock footage for any picture containing a tram or tram furniture.

It might be a coincidence, but one of the trams is marked for line 7, which was reopened in 1991 as a heritage tramway, so it might have been filmed running on the line or added to the shot with digital effects.

No, it is Stock footage that they were allowed to use if the digitalized it all for the tramway museum.
Then they cut in Hans-Erik (Cornelis) into the footage.
