Abstract [sv]

Som del av Stockholms arbete mot att bli en hållbar stad så strävar man efter att öka andelen cykelresor i staden. Förutom minskningen i koldioxidutsläpp som resulterar av att färre använder motorfordon så skulle detta ha en positiv effekt på folkhälsan. Detta arbete har undersökt vilka infrastrukturåtgärder som skulle ha en positiv effekt på andelen cyklister i Stockholm.

Ett viktigt steg för att åstadkomma detta var att identifiera vilka faktorer som är viktigast för att avgöra om folk väljer att cykla istället för att använda andra transportmedel och vilka av dessa som Stockholm har mest problem med. När dessa brister blivit identifierade var nästa steg att hitta infrastrukturkoncept från olika delar av världen som skulle kunna åtgärda dem. Efter det så gordes en utvärdering av vilka effekter som dessa koncept skulle kunna få om de infördes i Stockholm. Avslutningsvis har koncepten utvärderats efter vilka som antas kunna nå målen så effektivt som möjligt och om dessa skulle kunna ha negativa sekundäreffekter.

De koncept som fick bäst resultat i utvärderingen var Utbyggnad av cykelbanor och Cykelgator, där cyklister har prioritet och bilister måste anpassa sig efter cyklisterna.

Abstract [en]

As a part of Stockholm’s aim to become a sustainable city it strives to increase the modal share of cycling in the city. Apart from the decrease in carbon dioxide emissions as a result of the decreasing use of motor vehicles it would also have positive effects on people's health. This work examined different infrastructure projects that could have a positive effect on the modal share of cyclists in Stockholm.

An important step to accomplish this was to identify a number of factors that influence whether people choose to travel by bike instead of other modes of transportation and which of these that Stockholm have the most problems with. When these issues had been identified, the next step was to find infrastructure concepts from different parts of the world that could have a positive effect on these problems. After that the concepts were evaluated to assess what effect they would have if implemented in Stockholm. The last part of the work was to evaluate which of these concepts would be most efficient at accomplishing these goals and assess whether they would have any negative secondary effects.

The concepts that were considered the most appropriate were building bicycle paths and designating specific bicycle roads, where bikes are the prioritized type of traffic and car drivers have to adjust their speed and driving pattern to match the cyclists’.
