Working together for a resilient Birmingham.

Report Published on Transport Network Resilience to Extreme Weather

Following the extreme winter weather of 2013 / 2014, Richard Brown CBE, former Chairman of Eurostar was asked to lead a review into the resilience of the transport network during extreme weather events.  The report has now been published and a number of recommendations put forward. 

The report is available on the gov.uk website by clicking here.  The gov.uk website explains:

“The report considers the effects of extreme weather on roads, railways, ports and airports and makes some 60 recommendations for action by transport operators and central and local government. These range from short-term actions, such as those designed to improve basic maintenance of ditches, drains and vegetation, to longer-term recommendations, such as those on the economic signals and legislative provisions which have a bearing upon the resilience of our transport system.”
