Abstract [sv]

VTI has studied two rural road design alternatives with separated oncoming traffic lanes. The road under consideration is a planned relocation of road 67 between Stingtorpet and Tärnsjö in Heby municipality. The two studied alternatives are both "1+1-designs" with one lane per direction of travel separated by a median barrier. One of the alternatives includes no overtaking lanes whereas the other includes overtaking lanes for increased quality of service. The total length of the road is 23 km including 3 km "2+1-road" in the northern part outside Tärnsjö. This "2+1" section has an overtaking lane that is alternating between the two directions of travel. Along the studied stretch there are two intersections with certain traffic volumes entering and exiting the main road. All analyses where to be performed based on simulations using the VTI rural traffic simulation model, RuTSim.
