FORESEE provides cost effective and reliable tools to improve the resilience of transport infrastructure. Namely, it aims to reduce the magnitude and/or duration of disruptive events (natural and anthropogenic hazards), such as earthquakes, floods, fire or landslides. Through new innovative technologies, methodologies and resilient schemes, FORESEE addresses the effectiveness of measures aiming to improve the ability to anticipate, absorb, adapt to, and/or rapidly recover from a disruptive event, mainly in road and rail infrastructure and transport hubs. FORESEE proposes the development of a harmonised resilience assessment methodology and an integrated Toolkit able to reduce the consequences with a systemic perspective. This consists of:
a) The update of the best available methodologies from a performance based approach.
b) A Situational Awareness System based on best available data acquisition system.
c) Innovative technologies such as permeable pavements, slope stabilisation systems, innovative drainage and design of intersections.
d) Guidelines for the adaptation.
