R 8.1 Resilience to climate change of the road network
Wednesday, February 9 18:30 - 20:00 (Calgary)
Chair : Ms. Caroline EVANS, Chair of PIARC TC 1.4, Australia
Chair: Mr Fabien PALHOL, French-Speaking Secretary, PIARC TC 1.4, France
Road networks are exposed to various threats/hazards that affect their operation and structural integrity. To reduce vulnerabilities to these threats/hazards, road authorities and other organisations have implemented policies, strategies, and actions to increase the resilience of the transportation system.
The main objective of Technical Committee 1.4 is identify uniform and holistic methodological approaches to deal with climate change and other hazards based on case studies, and update the PIARC International Climate Change Adaptation Framework for Road Infrastructure. The progress of the working groups of the current PIARC cycle will be presented in this session.
To increase the resilience of the road transportation system to all threats/ hazards, including climate change and extreme weather, aging infrastructure, natural disasters, man-made disasters and cyber-physical threats TC 1.4 launched a call for papers to identify innovative practices and innovative methodological approaches to address the assessment of resilience.
This session will also present other international examples and case studies that increase the resilience of the road transportation network to hazards, including climate change, and also resilience assessment methodologies, and approaches to prioritize critical road segments for climate resilience investments.
