Approximately 15 million tons of dangerous goods are transported every year on our roads and railways. Of these shipments about 75% are petroleum products. Work on route control is important so that appropriate transport routes are chosen so that as far as possible the risk of an accident and its consequences are reduced.
Local traffic regulations
The county administrative boards are authorized to issue local traffic regulations to prohibit transport routes for dangerous goods within their geographical areas of responsibility.
The county administrative boards also recommend appropriate transport routes for these shipments and the parking spaces that could be used during rest periods.
The Swedish Transport Agency compiles and regularly publishes local traffic regulations from county administrative boards concerning the transport of dangerous goods.
You can read these on the Swedish Transport Agency's website.
