Adaptation of the road infrastructure to climate change

  • The road transport infrastructure is facing many challenges and the subsequent adaptation of the infrastructure is of utmost concern. These challenges are as follows: globalization, sustainability, technological and demographic change, an increase in goods transport and climate change. Various climate projections predict changing climatic parameters such as temperature, precipitation and wind speed for Germany. This could have severe impacts on road transport infrastructure as well as road traffic itself. At the Federal Highway Research Institute (Bundesanstalt für Straßenwesen), a strategy was developed to adapt roads and engineering structures to the impacts of climate change. The strategy "Anpassung der Straßenverkehrsinfrastruktur an den Klimawandel /Adaptation of road traffic infrastructure to climate change (AdSVIS)" currently comprises about 15 projects. Adaptation measures are to be developed for the identified risk areas and consequently their effectiveness has to be assessed.
