Future proofing strategies FOr RESilient transport networks against Extreme Events

Objective

Transportation systemic risks are not well understood across modes, regions, and critical interdependent sectors, creating uncertainty about risks resulting from a major system disruption. There is a lack of resilience schemes, especially for the long term, integrated into transport infrastructure due to the inability to monetize resilience for investment decisions, and there are also strong barriers to its implementation to operating practice. The overall objective of FORESEE is to develop and demonstrate a reliable and easily implementable toolkit for providing short and long term resilience schemes against traffic disruption due to flooding, landslide and structural damage for rail and road corridors and multimodal terminals. It will help move towards a performance based risk assessment framework, relying on: a) an update on best available methodologies, practices and solutions with data-enhanced: models, solutions and cost benefit assessments, b) the development of new solutions regarding drainages, pavements and landslides, and c) a detailed strategy for its successful implementation, integrated into the infrastructure life-cycle usual procedures. Prestandardization activities will be carried out throughout the life of the project.
The FORESEE toolkit will include: a) A reliable Data Acquisition System, satellite and terrestrial, b) A Situation Awareness System for the prediction and alert of extreme events c) New materials and systems regarding permeable pavements; drainage and culvert systems, and slope stabilization systems d) A Decision Support System to provide better informed resilience schemes e) Guidelines on Standards, Design and Technological recommendations. The setting up of a Stakeholders Reference Group at early stages of the project, will guarantee the accounting for the demands and the acceptance of all endusers. FORESEE will enhance international Cooperation by twinning with world leading institutes.
