Abstract [en]

Region Stockholm recently set a goal to highly increase the bicycle traffic share the comingdecade. Bicycles as a means of transport has grown in popularity and current trends showa steady yearly increase. The ambitiously set goal puts high demands on the currentpedestrian and bicycle paths in the city. More often than not, pedestrians and cyclists sharethe same space, and thus creating a source for conflicts. Accident statistics show these twogroups are particularily vulnerable, and as a result there is a considerable need for gooddesign of pedestrian and bicycle paths.The aims of this study are to examine the current guiding manuals for design; to developand use a method of analysing the interactions between pedestrians and cyclists; andfinally to explore how the design recommendations from the guiding manuals are followedthroughout routes in the city. The study’s purpose could be summarised as investigatingwhich widths of the pedestrian and bicycle paths result in the smallest amount of conflictsbetween the two groups. The project is split into one part literature study, one part fieldstudy.The literature study scrutinises the guiding manuals for design published by RegionStockholm, The Swedish Transport Administration ( Trafikverket ), The City of Stockholm,and The Swedish Authority of Local Authorities and Regions ( SKL ). Other works, such asreports and papers, or guiding design manuals from Denmark, a country in the frontier ofbicycle planning, are included in the analysis. In the field study, nine suitable locations inStockholm are chosen for data collection. The number of interactions and conflictsbetween pedestrians and cyclists are analysed for each location with intention of findingconnections between the conflicts and the design of the pedestrian and bicycle paths.Ultimately the study concludes that pedestrian paths should have a minimum width of 210centimetres. A satisfying interval of 220 - 230 centimetres is shown to be sufficient as thewidth of the bicycle path, which in total adds up to about 4.3 metres.
