Road network recovery

In the aftermath of man-made or natural disasters the movement of both people and goods is disrupted, which significantly jeopardises the performance of society and the economy.

Man-made or natural disasters create major disruptions to the flow of people and goods and can jeopardise the performance of society and the economy.

Diversion planning or recovery scheduling can help to minimise the cost and impact of disruptions by identifying the most relevant actions to restore traffic, given the available time and resources.

Research in this area aims to provide decision-makers with models that help to optimise their response to significant disruptions and to enhance the resilience of road networks.
