Abstract

The vulnerability of road pavements and transport systems to climate change impacts depends on their impact response. Abnormal weather events like floods and storms have occurred in recent years, causing disturbance and damage. Important tasks for consideration are as follows: contingency planning, revision of design criteria, improvement of pavements and structures to ensure the service level and adaptation of maintenance operations.
