Event description

Description

Getting the best out of asset management to improve network resilience and capacity from climate change and severe weather events are key challenges affecting transport resilience and have the potential to re-write current road network management and maintenance thinking.

In this free seminar, in association with WSP and Tarmac, we consider how to understand and plan for these future challenges using flexible future-proofing strategies, understanding future risks and learning from past experiences. Our speakers will address how to challenge our future thinking, enhance cooperation between stakeholders, and how to influence funding.
