Purpose and goal

The purpose of this project is to investigate the effect of dynamic priority lanes for freight, in terms of the efficiency on existing infrastructure, and to prepare for a full-scale demonstration. This has been achieved by a cost-benefit analysis on a real case which show the social benefits of implementing dynamic priority lane for freight. In addition, the project has prepared for a demonstration project which will develop and test the technical system that is required for implementing the service.

Expected results and effects

The study has resulted in several concrete proposals for how dynamic priority lane for freight can be used to create incentives for more sustainable freight transports which would contribute to increase goal achievement on both local, regional and national policy objectives related to transport, environment and business development. This also relates to set goals in the roadmap for Efficient and connected transport systems. In addition, the project will result in a demonstration project that will develop and test a technical system for dynamic lane prioritization for freight.

Planned approach and implementation

The project has been conducted in collaboration between CLOSER / LSP, DB Schenker, The Swedish Transport Administration, Chalmers, KTH, city of Stockholm and the city of Gothenburg. The project consisted of 7 work packages which have been coordinated through regular project meetings. Data collection consisted of literature reviews, interviews with stakeholders from transport and IT sector, and collection of traffic data for the simulation model. The concept is highly complex and will in future projects include a wider range of stakeholders to address all aspects of the subject.
