SWAMP Implementation

Implementation of SWAMP (avoiding/limiting the consequences of flooding in the highway network


SWAMP Implementation

SWAMP is the acronym for 'Storm Water prevention -Methods to Predict damage from the water stream in and near road pavements in lowland areas'. SWAMP is a research project of the cross-border funded joint research programme “ENR SRO3 -Road Owners Getting to Grips with Climate Change”. SWAMP – implementation of the SWAMP guidelines ‘SWAMP’ is one of the ‘Road Owners Getting to Grips with Climate Change’ research projects, initiated by ERA-NET ROAD and finished in 2010. The project is focused on methods to predict damage from the water stream in and near road pavements in lowland areas. SWAMP has resulted in guidelines and reports on two levels: primarily on the overall level with purpose of finding places on the existing network which should obtain high priority. Secondly guidelines on a more detailed level when preliminary studies and decisions should be taken. Implementation of SWAMP is the project focused on actually using SWAMP in The Netherlands. This means practically: • Using the SWAMP guidelines and coupling them with the national asset data and available analysing methods provided by the Centre for Transport and Navigation of Rijkswaterstaat to identify the blue spots. • Using this blue spot information, coupled with necessary measures to influence and change infrastructure planning and budgeting in a way that blue spots are dealt with systematically.
