Novel solutions to assess the safety of transport infrastructure

 

The SAFE-10-T project is developing novel solutions to assess the safety of transport infrastructure and to increase network capacity along the TEN-T network.

Several innovative methods of transport infrastructure safety assessment and network modeling were presented at a recent SAFE-10-T project consortium meeting at the Institute of International Sociology of Gorizia in Italy. These include advanced methods for assessing the reliability of bridges, tunnels, and earthworks, to avoid failures and, consequently, to ensure the safety of transport users. The project also supports better decision making with regard to infrastructure planning through the development of a multi-modal European-scale traffic model that can be used to assess the impacts of various infrastructure decisions at TEN-T network scale. 

The novel methodologies developed in the project will be applied to three demo sites: 1) Port of Rotterdam, 2) Port of Rijeka and 3) Severn River Crossing. Further information is available at the following link: http://www.safe10tproject.eu/work-packages/work-package4. The new methodologies will be brought together according to a Global Safety Framework that will form the basis of an online Decision Support Tool (DST) that will be supported by a Big Data platform, innovative machine learning applications, and novel visualization techniques. The DST will enable end-users to assess the risk in terms of travel disruption, societal costs and environmental impacts due to a potential infrastructure failure (e.g. bridge collapse due to deterioration).
