Approaches to Increase Availability of Underground Public Transport Systems in Crisis Situations –Resilience
Various threats and events can lead to major impacts on underground transport. Some possible scenarios are bomb threats, floods, fires and rampages. For this reason, it is necessary to further increase the resilience – i.e. the resistance to damaging impacts – of underground public transport systems.
Within the framework of the U-THREAT project, concepts and technical solutions were developed to enable rapid continuation in a restricted mode after an incident and then to return to normal operation. All relevant areas were considered:
With adapted vulnerability and life cycle cost analyses, two tools are also presented that can be used to identify the potentially most (cost-)effective measures.
