Effects of Traffic: Accessibility, Level of Service, Safety and Environment

VTTF10, 7,5 credits, G2 (First Cycle)

Valid for: 2020/21
Decided by: PLED V
Date of Decision: 2020-03-23

General Information

Compulsory for: IBYV3
Language of instruction: The course will be given in Swedish


The aim of the course is to give the course participants more thorough and applicable knowledge about traffic and its effect on the environment, traffic safety, accessibility and level of service. Participants will be provided with tools to estimate and analyze the effects of traffic and will have the opportunity to apply these on a real case in existing traffic environment. After completing the course, participants will be familiar with different measures on an overall and local level as well as their expected effects. Participants will gain a system-view about concurrent respectively conflicting interests in the work towards sustainable transport.

The course is based on five themes: Accessibility, Level of service, Safety, Environment and Aggregation of all qualities for all types of road users. Each theme lasts for 1-2 weeks and includes lectures, exercises, data computation, field studies and application of theme elements on the own project. The project is a piece of existing traffic environment. Some topics are closed by a longer seminar where findings are discussed. During the project students are provided with continuous written feedback and at the end of the course the project is presented in a written project report (consisting of individual and group common parts) and presented orally.

Examination details

Grading scale: TH - (U,3,4,5) - (Fail, Three, Four, Five)
Assessment: For a passing grade: approved exercises, approved project work, approved oral presentation and presence at the obligatory parts are needed. The grade is awarded on the basis of the project work report consisting of both individual and group contributions. Assessment is carried out with the teaching goals as a basis.

The examiner, in consultation with Disability Support Services, may deviate from the regular form of examination in order to provide a permanently disabled student with a form of examination equivalent to that of a student without a disability.
