Abstract [sv]

Road traffic is the most important source of many air pollutants in Sweden.

Environment Quality Standards which prescribe acceptable air quality have

been, or will be, introduced within the current decade. Due to the

environmental influence of road traffic there is a significant possibility to

use traffic management measures in order to reduce the negative environmental

effects of traffic. Efficient design of such measures demands models and

methods for estimation of the resulting air quality. This report presents the

state of the art in environmentally based traffic management. The work

includes a description of the environmental consequences of road traffic and

coming air quality standards. Further more, models for estimation of the

environmental impact of traffic are presented along with examples of possible

traffic management measures for a sustainable environment. Today's air

quality estimation systems are used mostly in pollution level control

applications. Air quality based traffic management may need a more detailed

description of traffic related pollutants. Moreover, the possibility for less

negative environmental impact through traffic management in Sweden is not

clear. Finally, the question of how to choose between a possible improvement

of the environment and other costs needs further investigation.
