This WS developed the CWA (CEN-CENELEC Workshop Agreement) ‘Guidelines for the assessment of resilience of transport infrastructure to potentially disruptive events’. This CWA describes a methodology for infrastructure managers to properly measure the Level of Service (LoS) provided by, and the resilience of, their transport infrastructure to natural hazards. These steps will ensure that infrastructure managers can systematically identify appropriate resilience enhancing actions and ensure the effective allocation of limited resources.
This CEN-CENELEC Workshop was initiated through the FORESEE Project, short for “Future proofing strategies FOr RESilient transport networks against Extreme Events” which is an EU collaborative research project funded by Horizon 2020. The FORESEE project develops a toolkit to improve road and rail asset management schemes for authorities and infrastructure operators. The first draft of the CWA will be based on the reports produced by this project. For further details on FORESEE, please visit the website https://foreseeproject.eu/
The WS has finalised the draft CWA ‘Guidelines for the assessment of resilience of transport infrastructure to potentially disruptive events’, which is hereby made available for a commenting phase of 45 days. Any interested party is invited to submit comments on the draft CWA to the WS secretary Mr Aitor Aragon Basabe (firstname.lastname@example.org), by 27 August 2021, using the below commenting form.
