Congestion charges norra lÄnken

Project Number: 188

Project Leader: Maria Börjesson

Start Date: 2011-01-01

End Date: 2011-11-01

CTS gives advice concerning which models to use for evaluation, what model output that should be used as evaluation indicators when choosing between different systems and how to interpret them. The system will be designed so that it can be adapted to include charges on the Essinge bypass when Förbifart Stockholm is built. It is possible that the Lidingöundantaget will be abolished as part of
