Different effects of bypass solutions have been analyzed at the request of the National Road Administration. The project was based on an inventory of existing bypass solutions and a description of bypasses constructed during the period of 1970-1989. Different effects on traffic have been analyzed of bypasses constructed in connection to built-up areas with 2000-10,000 inhabitants concerning road safety, traffic on the through road before and after the construction of the bypass, travel time effects, change in vehicle costs and exhaust emissions, as well as economy of the society. To describe qualitative effects, a sample of residents in nine municipalities with no bypass and nine municipalities where bypasses have been constructed at the end of the 1980s, were asked about the situation on the through road by questionnaire.
