Abstract [sv]

On behalf of the Mälardalen Region of the Swedish Road Administration

(Vägverket), the

Swedish Road and

Transport Research Institute (VTI) has studied the effects of measures taken

on the street network in five

towns. The effects studied were safety, trafficability and environmental

impact (as the effect of gas,

particle and noise emissions). The measures taken were physical measures with

the principal purpose of

reducing vehicle speeds and reducing the distance over which pedestrians and

cyclists were exposed. The

levels of intersections were raised, pinch points or chicanes were

constructed along streets, different

types of surfacings were laid in order to reinforce the perception of a

reduced street space. Before and

after studies were performed. The sites were videoed. The results of this

formed the basis for assessing

the safety effect and determining trafficability and vehicle flows. The video

footage was also used to

determine the speed distribution of vehicles on pedestrian and cycle

crossings. The driving pattern of

vehicles was studied with the help of the pursuit vehicle at some of the

sites in order to determine the

speed reducing effect of the measures along the street. The gas and particle

emissions of vehicles were

estimated using the VETO model. This model was also used to make an advance

estimate of the effect of

the measures on traffic noise. Attitude surveys were conducted at the sites

to determine the opinions of

road users concerning the measures.
