LINJEFOERINGSSTANDARD; OEKONOMISK METODE FOR WALG AV OPTIMAL LINJEFOERINGSSTANDARD

This report explains how to choose a standard of alignment for a highway/road based on economic criteria. Several alternative locations for a particular route were studied and the investment and vehicle operation costs calculated to find the minimum cost alignment. The factors determining the costs are discussed as well as the accident risk regarding the various alignments. The latter is excluded from the quantitative analysis, however. /Author/TRRL/
