Keep European roads and railways robust against climate change and human safety risk in the future
Climate change is increasingly affecting our daily lives due to higher temperatures, greater temperature differences, increased storms, heavy rains, and periods of drought. Our roads and railways are also suffering from extreme weather and ageing. This natural phenomenon, together with higher traffic taxes and risks of attacks, poses a serious threat to Europe's infrastructure. Infrastructure owners and managers should therefore be able to respond to incidents faster and more adequately, and better respond to dynamic maintenance plans.
