Review of the Resilience of the Transport Networks to Extreme Weather Events

22 July 2014

A Review of the Resilience of the Transport Networks to Extreme Weather Events has been published today by the Department for Transport. The report was commissioned following the extreme weather of the 2013/14 winter.

The report outlines the findings and makes more than 60 recommendations ranging from short-term action on communications and improved maintenance to longer-term consideration of the economic and legal framework.

The report cites the UK Roads Liaison Group saying 'We have referred previously to the Guidance documents produced by UKRLG, a body which brings together government and practitioners across the UK. The Panel heard that a review of one of the key guidance documents, ‘Well Maintained Highways’ is underway. We believe this provides an excellent opportunity to reflect many of the points covered in this Review.'

The report also sees the UKRLG as one key route for disemminating good practice on highways maintenance, this led to two of the recommendations of the Review:

Recommendation 28:
The DfT should use the UK Roads Liaison Group to undertake a review of all matters relating to the monitoring and maintenance of bridges.

Recommendation 38:
The update to Well-Maintained Highways should be used to reflect the drive towards asset management in highways maintenance, with the inclusion of drainage. It should also reflect the points covered in this Review, and particularly address the issue of risk and resilience.
