The Need for a Resilient Network
When you see this (and similar Tweets) all to often you wonder how resilient is our entire transport network is:
There is an article in the Herald about accident that happened last night which is still having effects NOW can be seen here: Fatal crash in Auckland closes major route to airport
The accident happened on I believe the from north to west link of the State Highway One/Twenty interchange that is known for speeding traffic and useless merging
Having a major route to the airport closed is not particular good. Then again neither is accidents anywhere on the motorway network nor blockages on the rail network and the trains not being able to “run around.” So the question is how do we get the transport network to be more resilient for both freight and people.
Leave your comments below of inclined email me for a guest post spot.
I shall answer the question myself this weekend.
Have a good Friday everyone
