  1. 1. Improved road design for future maintenance : analysis of road barrier repair costs

    Author : Hawzheen Karim; Ulf Isacsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; highway maintenance; highway management; highway design; road planning; road design; highway engineering; road barrier; cable barrier; w-beam barrier; road barrier damages; barrier repair cost.; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik; Keywords: highway maintenance; barrier repair cost; Vägprojektering för minskade drift- och underhållskostnader;

    Abstract : The cost of a road construction over its service life is a function of the design, quality of construction, maintenance strategies and maintenance operations. Unfortunately, designers often neglect a very important aspect which is the possibility to perform future maintenance activities. READ MORE

  2. 2. The use of highway crossings to maintain landscape connectivity for moose and roe deer

    Author : Mattias Olsson; Per Widén; Anthony Clevenger; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; wildlife crossings; Barrier effect; habitat selection; ecoduct; moose; roe deer; connectivity; conservation; overpass; underpass; highway; exclusion fencing; Biology; Biologi; Biology; Biologi;

    Abstract : Increasingly wildlife managers and land managers are challenged to maintain the viability and connectivity among large mammal populations. Thus, it is important that effective highway crossings are identified and optimized with respect to construction cost, facilitation of ungulate movements, and ability to reduce wildlife-vehicle collisions.

  4. 4. Suspended solids and metals in highway runoff : implications for treatment systems

    Author : Magnus Hallberg; Gunno Renman; Thomas Pettersson; KTH; []

    Abstract : It is known that traffic is a source of pollutants and that pollutant loads increase with elevated traffic densities. Studies executed in Stockholm, Sweden advocate that highway runoff from roads with an annual average daily traffic (AADT) exceeding 30,000 vehicles need treatment before discharge to the receiving water.
