Policies, procedures and strategies directory - Resilient network map and briefing paper
Following the severe weather in 2013/14, the Secretary of State for Transport commissioned an independent review into the effects of severe weather on the transport network.
The subsequent report identified that episodes of severe weather would become more frequent and transport authorities should plan how to manage the impact of these episodes.
The Government, in its response to the report, required local authorities to identify a 'resilient network' to which they will give priority,
in order to maintain economic activity and access to key services during extreme weather.
