Road and street design (Swedish)

The Swedish Transport Administration draws up rules for the design of roads and streets, VGU. The rules are used in all design of state roads. The current regulations apply from 1 January 2021.

The rules are adapted to different forms of contracting and are used for both new construction and major conversions. VGU contributes, in the long run, to the traffic arriving in a smooth and safe way.

The rules are mandatory for work on state roads. For other road managers, VGU is only a guide and not a requirement. However, VGU can, and may, be used as a requirement document when procuring design for roads other than the state ones.
