SWEDISH SPEED TABLES
2012 - 2019
TES has prepared CAD base, scheme and construction plans for new Swedish speed tables at several locations. Swedish speed tables are an innovative solution to slowing vehicles down and are suitable for bus routes as there is only one bump for buses to negotiate.
Auckland Transport (AT) has used Swedish Speed Tables to slow down all vehicles to 20-30 km/hr which improves the safety of a route, particularly for the vulnerable road users (pedestrians & cyclists). They also provide a better ride for buses.
AT has approved the Swedish speed table in local areas where there are bus routes. The speed table only has one sharp ramp with a gradient of 1:13 and a height of a 100mm, which produces a smoother ride for buses. Compared to the normal speed table that has two sharp bumps.
TES has produced construction plans and have had Swedish speed tables installed at seven sites.
