Adapting road infrastructure to climate change
The ROADAPT project is about prioritising adaptation measures in order to maximise service availability at a reasonable cost. It adopts a risk-based approach using the RIMAROCC framework (Risk Management for Roads in a Changing Climate), which was developed as part of ERA NET ROAD in 2011. The approach addresses the causes, effects and consequences of weather-related events to identify the main risks that require action through the implementation of mitigating measures.
The ROADAPT project is part of the CEDR “Transnational Road Research Programme on Climate Change” (funded by the national road authorities of the Netherlands, Denmark, Germany and Norway). The ROADAPT consortium consists of the following partners: Deltares (The Netherlands, coordinator), SGI (Sweden), Egis (France) and KNMI (The Netherlands).
