A GIS-based infrastructure management system to increase resilience of terrestrial transportation networks

The SAFEWAY project, a GIS-based infrastructure management system for optimised response to extreme events on terrestrial transport networks, has been featured in an article by CSIC researchers Dr Ajith Parlikad, Reader in Asset Management, Institute for Manufacturing, University of Cambridge and CSIC Investigator, and Dr Georgios Hadjidemetriou, CSIC Research Associate, in Civil Engineering Surveyor, the monthly journal of the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors. SAFEWAY aims to address the ability of transport systems to function during challenging circumstances and quickly recover to acceptable levels of service after extreme events.

SAFEWAY is funded by the EU Horizon 2020 ‘Smart, green and integrated transport’ work programme which is aimed at achieving a European transport system that is resilient, resource-efficient, climate-and environmentally- friendly, safe and seamless for the benefit of all citizens, the economy and society.
