Förväntningar på åtgärd av riksväg 23 mellan Sandsbro och Braås: gruppdiskussioner med lastbilschaufförer och frekventa användare av riksväg 23
Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute.
2007 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [sv]

Road 23 is one of the larger approaches to Växjö from north-east and the traffic is considerable. The stretch between Sandsbro and Braås is just about 20 kilometres and the road is about 9 meters wide with one lane in each direction. There have been many accidents on the road and a rebuilding to increase traffic safety is planned as a part of the project Safer accessibility performed by the Swedish Road Administration. With regard to the dense traffic a railing in the middle of the road and a 2+1-roadsection are planned, since they decrease the risk of harsh accidents with frontal collisions. The purpose with this study was to capture the road-users' experience of the road today and their expectations of the planned action, both from a safety as from an accessibility perspective. Therefore truck drivers and frequent road-users' where invited to discussions in focus groups.
