Abstract

Transport infrastructure is one of the seven types of nationally significant critical infrastructure identified federally to ensure the continuity of essential services in the face of extreme events including terrorist attacks and natural disasters. This project aims to provide tools for determining the most cost efficient schedule of preventative strengthening works for road networks for reducing the disruption and recovery costs after extreme events. The project aims to develop a novel platform for increasing the resilience of road networks by blending transport resilience modelling and structural health vulnerability analysis of road infrastructure into one integrated spatially enabled ro..
