Varför bygga upphöjd Cykelinfrastruktur?

Vi fick frågan i vissa sammanhäng: vilka problem löser ert upphöjt system « VelAir ». VTIs rapport « Snabbcykelstråk i planeringen och praktiken » har det perfekta svaret. Dem skriver att « Idealt skulle ett snabbcykelstråk till exempel innebära att inte ha några stopp för korsande trafik, och ur säkerhetssynpunkt skulle planskildhet vara det bästa alternativet ». De reflekterar dock vidare […]

Webinar on Cycling Infrastructure

Together with Innovatum and Energikontor Väst, we organise a webinar about sustainable ways to build sustainable mobility infrastructure. It takes place online the 6th of May at 10 am. You are welcome to register until the 4th of May (in Swedish).

Friction on wooden surfaces – Final report

We are happy that our final report for the Skyltfonden-financed project to investigate the frictional properties of wooden pavements as been approved for release. The main outcome is that all is not what it seems when it comes to the influence of fibre direction on friction and that moisture content is a determining factor influencing […]

Pendulum Skid Resistance Tester

Today, we have received our brand new and calibrated Skid Resistance Tester, an established device to measure friction properties of various surface. This is part of the Skyltfonden-financed project to establish friction data on wood-rubber interactions, with a focus on angle of interaction (vs wood fibre direction). To test our skills and new device, we […]
