Special Issue Information

Dear Colleague,

The focus of this Special Issue will be research on the sustainable provision of transport services and infrastructure which specially address climate change issues. Its scope includes theoretical modelling approaches and empirical studies associated with the financing, design, construction, maintenance, and management of transport services and infrastructure that address the impacts of climate change on the sustainable provision of transportation.

The impacts of climate change are a major concern on the provision of reliable, affordable, and safe transportation now and into the future and therefore the Special Issue seeks to inform the research community and practitioners alike of cutting edge research into the climate resilience of transportation.

The issue will provide a source of up-to-date research on the provision of climate resilient transportation. Specific areas of focus may include (but are not limited to)

  • Innovative financing approaches
  • New user charging models
  • Public Private Partnerships
  • Behavioral models
  • Lessons learnt from Covid-19-associated research
  • Innovative design approaches
  • e-technologies
  • Life cycle cost analyses approaches
  • Drainage innovation
  • Disaster management approaches
  • The novel use and application of materials
  • Data and data management
  • Innovations in maintenance
  • Asset management approaches
