Roads for today adapted for tomorrow (ROADAPT)

This object has been archived because its content is outdated. You can still access it as legacy


ROADAPT has developed models and tools to support decision-making in adaptation measures for road infrastructure.

One of the most important tasks of the road owners is the prioritization of measures in order to maximize availability with reasonable costs. The RIMAROCC framework (Risk Management for Roads in a Changing Climate) was developed in 2011. ROADAPT builds upon that framework to provide practical methods for road owners and road operators. Output of the ROADAPT project is a set of guidelines, completed in 2015:

A. Guideline on the use of climate change projections.

B. Guideline on the application of a QuickScan on climate change risks for roads.

C. Guideline on how to perform a detailed vulnerability assessment.

D. Guideline on how to perform a socio economic impact assessment.

E. Guideline on how to come to an adaptation strategy.


Three case studies have been carried out for validation and demonstration purposes. These are the A24 in Portugal, the Rotterdam-Ruhr corridor and the Öresund region.
