On 29 November, a delegation of FORESEE (Tecnalia and SRG Chairman) presented in Madrid the ongoing research to ADIF that is the Spanish state-owned railway infrastructure manager part of the Ministry of Development. ADIF was founded in 2005 responsible for the management of most of Spain’s railway infrastructure including the track, signalling and stations.
Discussions during the technical workshop focussed on the future outputs related to resilience and asset management in transport infrastructures. Concretely, experts shared knowledge and experience gained during the first Deliverables prepared by the project on the “Guidelines to measure Level of Service and Resilience in infrastructures” and the “Guideline to set target Levels of Service and Resilience for infrastructures”
A main concern for the railways managers in Spain is to promise and extend the lifetime of the current network while ensuring highest levels of quality, safety, security and service. In this sense, adaptability to impact of climate change represents a priority for Public Administrations to which the FORESEE Methodology can highly contribute.
ADIF and FORESEE will enhance future collaboration as members of the Stakeholders Reference Group. This body aims at exchanging knowledge and good practices involving main actors in the transport infrastructure sector both from roads and railways.
