The purpose of the Dutch Main Road Network (Hoofdwegennet; HWN) is to facilitate large volumes of traffic in a safe manner. It usually does so decently: infrastructure rarely fails in the Netherlands. However, climate change may affect our road network's reliability. For instance, extreme rainfall and searing heat pose challenges even to the best designed infrastructure networks. Examples include the collapse of embankments, sinkholes and drawbridges not being able to close.
During this lunch lecture Daniel van den Heuvel will tell you about the work Witteveen+Bos has done to mitigate the effects of climate change on the main road network. We used a stress test with 10 potential climate risks to assess which sections of the network are at risk. We've also come up with specific measures to reduce these risks. During the lecture we'll discuss several climate risks and measures in detail.
At the moment you can subsribe for attending the lunch lecture in the Horst. If the measures will not allow this, then the participants that subscribed to attend physically will automatically be added to the online participants. The speaker will attend the lunch lecture online.
