THE WORLD CYCLING CHAMPIONSHIPS 93 IN OSLO - WHAT HAPPENED TO THE TRAFFIC?

SYKKEL-VM 93 I OSLO - HVA SKJEDDE MED TRAFIKKEN?

The road races of the World Cycling Championships 1993 took place in the Oslo area between 24 and 29 August. During the periods of competition and official training some of the major roads were closed to other traffic. Information on the constraints to be imposed on road traffic, possible detours and also on the possibility of exessive congestion was given well in advance. Both leaflets, road signs and media were used for this purpose. The information had the intended effect. Road traffic in the Oslo area generally decreased by 15 per cent on the days with competitions and 8 per cent on the days with official training. Although the road closings induced major shifts in route choice and also some shifts in the timing of trips, the overall decrease in road traffic was sufficient to prevent exessive congestion on alternative routes.(A)
