Detail

The transport resilience review is an independent study of all modes of transport and their ability to function in a wide range of extreme weather events.

This review was commissioned by the Secretary of State for Transport in response to the extreme weather experienced during the winter of 2013 and 2014. It was conducted by a panel of experts and sought evidence from across the transport community.

The report:

  • sets out the context in which it was conducted
  • gives an overview of the weather events of 2013 and 2014
  • provides commentary on the expected severity and frequency of such events in the future
