The changeable Nordic climate has added problems to road maintenance and the environment to ensure traffic safety under winter conditions. The widespread use of salt (NaCl) for snow and ice removal from roads has resulted in environmental impacts in many areas. Some of the problems associated with the use of NaCl are the corrosion of bridges, road surfaces and vehicles and damage to roadside vegetation and aquatic system that are affected by water from de-iced roads. Accumulation of hard metals (Pb, Cd, Ni, Zn, Cu, Co) hazardous to the environment in areas near the road has been determined. The growth of zinc concentration in soil was accompanied by an increase ...
