Hele rapporten

85 pedestrian crossings in 50 km/h zones on national roads in Oslo have been inspected with a view to recommend measures to improve safety. 26 crossings do not fulfill the criteria for making a pedestrian crossing on account of too high speed level or too few pedestrians. It is assessed that 12 pedestrian crossings have a high level of risk, while 50 crossings have a medium level of risk. Flaws in design, marking, signs and/or maintenance have been found for 79 of the crossings. We recommend that 61 pedestrian crossings be maintained, but only 10 crossings should be kept without change. 35 crossings should be somewhat amended, while 16 crossings should be upgraded. 23 crossings should be eliminated, and one crossing should be moved.
