Extreme natural and man-made events can harm the road infrastructure facilities with substantial economic
damages. The research presented in this paper focuses on the quantification of the availability and safety of road
infrastructure during the occurrence of extreme events. It presents the first results of the implementation of
Resilience Engineering to road infrastructure. This work is carried out within the framework of the BMVI
Network of Experts of the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure as part of the
research ‘Quantification and prognosis of the availability and safety of road infrastructure in extreme events’
which is a component of the topic ‘Increasing the reliability of transport infrastructures’ lead by the Federal
Highway Research Institute (BASt).
