Abstract [sv]

Examensarbetet syftar till att inhämta kunskap om planering för cykeltrafik i städer och att identifiera problem som uppkommer när andelen cyklister ökar i städerna. Framkomligheten och trafiksäkerheten påverkas när andelen cyklister ökar och dessa problem studeras i examensarbetet.

Examensarbetet grundas på en litteraturstudie där kunskap om cykeltrafik och planering för cykelplanering har inhämtas. Vidare har liknande studier om cykeltrafik i städer sökts. Då arbetet är en pilotstudie och saknar jämförelse i liknande format har även kunskap om datainsamling och metodik studerats.

Datainsamling har skett med hjälp av pendlingscyklister i Stockholm som utrustats med GPS logger och kamera på cykeln. 17 cyklister har under maj – juni 2009 samlat in data till och från arbetet. Dessa cyklister valdes ut med hjälp av Krister Isaksson, Stockholm Stad Trafikkontoret. Data har sedan analyserats med hjälp av ett nytt, egentillverkat, analysverktyg som möjliggör samtidig analys av GPS- och filmdata. Utifrån analysen har problem i Stockholms cykelnätverk kategoriserats och identifierats.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this Master Thesis is to obtain increased knowledge about the planning and design of cycle infrastructures in cities. When the number of cyclists increases it affects accessibility, mobility and traffic safety. Further, the purpose is to identify where, when and what types of problems occur in cities when the proportion of cyclists in traffic increases.

The Master Thesis is founded on a literature study in which knowledge about the planning and design of cycle infrastructures as well as information about similar projects have been reviewed. No similar study of this kind has been found which is why information regarding data collection and analysis has been studied as well.

Data collection was performed by 17 cycle commuters in Stockholm. The cyclists were selected in a dialog with Krister Isaksson, City of Stockholm. The cyclists were equipped with a GPS logger and an action camera mounted on the bike. During May – June 2009 they cycled between home and work with the equipment while at the same time collecting data for the project. The analysis was performed using a specially developed analysis program. The program enables the simultaneous analysis of GPS and video data. The analysis has resulted in an identification and categorization of accessibility and safety problems in Stockholm’s cycle network.
