schienenfreie Kreuzungen

"In Mitteleuropa baute man Barrikaden auf den Straßen. In Schweden suchte
man durch schienenfreie Kreuzungen vorwärtszukommen“
Tage Erlander

I have no idea what "schienenfreie Kreuzungen" might be.
Can anyone help? A paraphrase of the basic gist would be fine.

Rail-free intersections/crossroads; intersection/crossroads without rails

So while Sweden tore barriers down and tried to move forward (by intersections without rails [fig.?]), Central Europe set up barricades on the streets.
possibly to indicate a stark contrast: barricades  -  smoothly flowing traffic  #853951

Overpass / underpass  #853961

I cannot find a single neat English word for this. It means that, instead of having a level-crossing, where road traffic has to stop while a train passes, an overpass or underpass is built. More expensive to build, but safer, and a lot of time and fuel is saved.
crossing above or below the track level \ crossing above or below the railway / railroad  #853966

Flyover junction  #854024

I don't think that this word is used here, and the term "burrowing junction" is also used in this site:
Wikipedia(EN): Flying_junction
It has some good visuals.
"Flying junction" would include both overs and unders.
4; Proteus: re the Google scanned books. It a highly regrettable, after all the work put into this project aimed at making rare books available to the public, that so many of them are partially or almost entirely illegible. So badly reproduced that it is impossible even to guess the general import of the text.
One wonders, Catesse, how much money the poor druges having to scan the tomes ever received  #854048

Machines  #854092

Actually, Proteus, there are machines that turn pages and photograph them automatically. I imagine that Google has banks of them. End product untouched by human hand and possibly unseen by a humanoid.
You know the saying: To err is human, but it takes a computer to stuff things up thoroughly. (Or something similar.)
For a while I was doing crowd-sourcing work on scanned newspapers for the National Library. Brilliant project, but it was amazing the mess that the OCR program could make of text.
