Abstract

Large infrastructure projects often involve important decision about evacuation safety measures, e.g., emergency exit portals, alarm systems, etc, that need to be taken in spite of limited information and knowledge about the topic. This has been shown to sometimes lead to design mistakes, but these mistakes can potentially be avoided if research is linked to the project at an early stage. This paper discusses how research can be connected to large infrastructure tunnel projects, and illustrates the process using the Stockholm Bypass Project as an example. In addition, the results of a research project, which was linked to the Stockholm Bypass Project, are presented and relevant additional publications are given.
