Building on our series of regional resilience seminars in 2017 and 2018, CIHT was pleased to host an event with a national multi-sector perspective on resilience: Transport Sector Resilience in a Changing World.
The seminar provided best practice on resilience issues and gave a wider understanding of future challenges to our transport networks. Challenges to our transport networks from climate change, society, resources, skills and technology and our ability to future proof our infrastructure assets was examined.
This full-day event was held on the 11th April 2019. It covered both ‘Road Resilience Readiness’ and Aviation, Rail and Disaster Management. You can find all the slides at this link and video's of the presentations are available below.
Steve Berry talks about the initiatives that the DfT has been taken to improve the resilience of the national transport infrastructure network.
Chris presents WSP's Future Ready toolkit and how WSP is using this to embed resilience in to the projects and programmes that they work on.
Mark talks about how Tarmac is addressing the poor quality of local roads in the UK. By an organised use of data throughout Tarmac's operations they are able to deliver improved services for their clients.
Chris talks about how Hertfordshire as a Local Authority has addressed the issue of making their network more resilient. Hertfordshire is a best practice example of how to carry out asset management. One way Hertfordshire are future proofing their network is by reviewing their hierarchy of assets in terms of resilience.
David talks about the impacts of climate and weather changes on running the national rail network and how Network Rail are addressing the issue of eliminating the performance gap that arise when the weather goes from 'normal' to 'adverse'.
With a particular emphasis on the importance of information management during disasters, James presents case studies with lessons learned from Japan, Chile, The United States and others.
