This is a state of the art report on optical guidance in darkness on roads without public lighting. The purpose of the work was to form a basis for further work in this field with special interest in Swedish conditions. Firstly the requirement for information for the road users is briefly discussed. Then the following subjects are dealt with: pavement, road markings, raised pavement markers and delineators with respect to: technical design, practical use on the road, function and effects on traffic behaviour. Finally, possible test methods for some of the measures described are discussed in general terms. /TRRL/
