Abstract [sv]

Det övergripande syftet med denna studie var att sammanställa och jämföra vägmarkeringarnas funktion i Norge, Sverige och Finland, för att sprida kunskapen mellan länderna. Resultaten visade att vägmarkeringarnas funktion tenderade att vara något bättre i Norge och Sverige jämfört med i Finland. Mer specifikt syftade studien till att undersöka om det finns skillnader i vägmarkeringarnas funktion mellan det tre länderna, och om det finns skillnader i vägmarkeringarnas funktion beroende på trafikflöde och körbanebredd. Resultaten visade att vägmarkeringarnas funktion tenderade att vara något bättre i Norge och Sverige än i Finland. Retroreflexionens medelvärde för torra kantmarkeringar var i Norge 179, i Sverige 177 och i Finland 142. Motsvarande värden för mittmarkeringar var i Norge 137 (gul markering), i Sverige 164 (vit markering) och i Finland 102 (vit markering) respektive 107 (gul markering). För våta kantlinjer var retroreflexionen i Norge 45 och i Sverige 31. I Finland har inga våtvärden mätts. Vidare visade resultaten att kantlinjernas retroreflexion är oberoende av årsmedeldygnstrafik (ÅDT) och av körbanebredd. Mittlinjer på vägar med ÅDT <2 000 hade lägre retroreflexion än mittlinjer på mer högtrafikerade vägar. Ett urval om 98–167 mätobjekt gjordes i varje land, där varje objekt utgjordes av en cirka 2–10 kilometer lång vägsträcka. Samtliga mätobjekt bestod av tvåfältsvägar, vilka var indelade i fem olika klasser baserat på ÅDT och körbanebredd. För varje mätobjekt mättes retroreflexionen på båda kantlinjerna och på mittlinjen.

Abstract [en]

The overall aim of the present study was to compile and compare road marking performance in Norway, Sweden and Finland, in order to disseminate knowledge. More specifically, the study aimed at investigating whether there are any differences in road marking performance between the countries, and whether there are any differences in road marking performance depending on traffic volume and road width. The results showed that road marking performance tended to be somewhat better in Norway and Sweden than in Finland. The average of the retroreflexion for dry edge markings were in Norway 179, in Sweden 177 and in Finland 142. Corresponding results for centre lines were in Norway 137 (yellow markings), in Sweden 164 (white marking) and in Finland 102 (white marking) and 107 (yellow marking), respectively. For wet edge markings, the retroreflexion was 45 in Norway and 31 in Sweden. In Finland, no data on wet markings was available. Furthermore, the results showed that the retroreflexion of the edge markings was independent of average annual daily traffic (AADT) and roadway width. Centre markings on roads with AADT<2000 had lower retroreflexion than centre markings on roads with larger traffic volume. A sample of 98–167 objects were selected from each country, where each object consisted of a 2–10 kilometre long stretch of road. All objects were two-lane roads, which were divided into five classes based on AADT and roadway width. For each object, the retroreflexion of both edge lines and the centre line was measured.
