RISE coordinated the Access and Control work package within the national R&D program for High Capacity Land Transport.
The goal of the Research and Development (R&D) program was to be able to propose a regulatory framework that makes it possible to introduce longer and heavier vehicles on parts of the Swedish road network. The definition of HCT is that there are longer and / or heavier vehicle trains than the current regulations allow.
For the management of the program, there are a steering group that had four meetings per year where those responsible for each work package and other parties in CLOSER participate. There are 10 different work packages that are coordinated by different parties:
