Abstract [en]

The Swedish Transport Agency is working to achieve good accessibility, high quality, secure andenvironmentally aware rail, air, sea and road transport. They have overall responsibility for drawing upregulations. Recently they commissioned VTI to review and give recommendations on friction/skidresistance measurements in Sweden (dry road condition). Up to now, no common rules for frictiontesting exist for all roads and paths. The present rules only applies to governmental owned andmaintained road. The new challenge is to include urban roads, cycleways and walking paths as well. Wehave studied used methods and rules, mainly in the Nordic countries and especially looked atmotivations of requirements, measured friction levels and the desired thresholds. Finally, after analysisof the review results we have recommended methods and assessed risks of the suggestions. The reviewhave resulted in a set of recommendations such as what measurement methods to use, practical thresholdtriggers but also what needs to be further investigated. This paper will present the results from thereview.
