The climate change resilient road
Fully adaptable to extreme weather conditions:
The resilient road will adapt itself to the impacts of extreme weather conditions and climate change. The road will monitor flooding, snow, ice, wind and temperature change, and mitigate their impacts through integrated storm drainage, automatic heating and cooling, and will be linked to the integrated information system for travellers and operators.
The climate change resilient road: focuses on ensuring adequate service levels of the road network under extreme weather conditions. Innovation themes will address adaptation of road operations and management to the effects of extreme weather to such extent that adequate service levels are ensured.
