Forgiving asphalt for bike- and pedestrian lanes

Reference number
Coordinator RISE Research Institutes of Sweden AB - SP Kemi, material och ytor, Stockholm
Funding from Vinnova SEK 5 000 000
Project duration October 2015 - April 2019
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

In the project, a shock absorbing aspalt that can be produced in Sweden by conventional methods at a satisfactory working environment has been developed. The asphalt, which is the first of its kind, appears to be smooth, cycle-friendly and durable over several seasons.

Expected results and effects

Using shock-absorbing asphalt for vulnerable road users can reduce injuries in road accidents, and has the potential to increase the number of journeys with these modes of transport. Switching from transport by motor vehicles to physical transport has positive effects on public health, congestion in the transport system and the emissions from the transport sector.

Planned approach and implementation

The project has had the following outline: Development of methods for evaluation and comparison Material development Pilot trials

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
