Transportation Infrastructure: Adapting for Climate Change and Extreme Weather Impacts examines the international state of knowledge on climate change and weather and their potential impacts on the planning, design and serviceability of transportation networks. The book describes alternative frameworks for adapting to climate change in the planning, provision and management of transportation systems. It discusses methods and models for including climate and weather factors in planning and design for use in transportation asset systems under risk and uncertainty. Giving specific attention to road, rail, ports and harbors, the book provides users with the tools they need in decision-making approaches where there is uncertainty.

  • Examines the impact of climate change and extreme weather on the performance and serviceability of transportation assets
  • Explores the issues, methods, frameworks, models and techniques for assessing transportation systems' performance, including considerations for climate and the environment
  • Provides case studies from around the world to illustrate methods, covering a wide range of climatic conditions, considerations and approaches for transportation planners
