Traffic management and information

Through various internal and external channels traffic management receives information about, for example, stationary vehicles, sudden traffic queues and objects on the lanes. The information is analysed, communicated to road users and constitutes the basis for the traffic controller’s decision regarding the measures to be taken, for example closing a lane completely, dispatching Road Assistance cars or anti-skid measures.

When a traffic incident occurs it is essential that Trafik Stockholm receives the information promptly, partially to be able to rectify the traffic situation as smoothly as possible and partially in order to convey correct information to road users. We are therefore dependent on good collaboration with our internal and external partners as well as our technical system for the collation of information regarding the traffic situation:

  • SOS Alarm, police and the emergency services.
  • Road and traffic reporters and road users who via telephone report disruptions in traffic.
  • Technical equipment along the roads, e.g., cameras, sensors and detectors.
  • Road maintenance contractors.
  • The Swedish Road Administration’s road weather stations which register the weather situation along the roads.

Information for road users

Trafik Stockholm communicates with road users through various channels such as variable lane signs above the carriageways that can be used to advise drivers to reduce their speed or change lanes. Other digital signs give information pertaining to road work or closed roads. Furthermore, the traffic management centre issues information about the current traffic situation to radio stations, text TV, navigation systems, mobile services and web sites:


www.trafikverket.se >> Läget på vägarna includes nationwide information about the current traffic situation in the form of maps, text reports and camera images, as well as skid forecasts during October - March.

www.trafiken.nu is a web and mobile service where you can receive a collated up-to-date picture of the traffic situation in Stockholm.

Road Assistance

In Stockholm there are a number of Road Assistance cars working with the prompt and effective removal of traffic hazards and disruptions. The assistance vehicles are fully equipped to be able to offer rapid assistance at minor breakdowns, provide fuel for empty tanks and remove traffic hazards. The assistance is free of charge and the benefits for society are huge. Vehicles are always on hand in the vicinity of Södra Länken in order to ensure good safety in the tunnel system. Road Assistance is directed by Trafik Stockholm.

Advanced surveillance system for increased safety

For increased safety in the tunnels and the main routes an advanced surveillance system is connected to Trafik Stockholm. With the help of cameras the traffic controller can monitor and control traffic and forward the information to the emergency services in order to render more effective the rescue services. On the lanes there are detectors and sensors which read the flow of traffic and when needed adjust the speed automatically via the variable message signs above the carriageways.
