The Blue spot concept - methods to predict and handle flooding on highways

Flooding poses a great threat to roads, and may in severe cases lead to massive obstruction to traffic and damages to the road structures themselves. The SWAMP project targets the critical issues of finding the most vulnerable parts of the road network, called blue spots, and how to prepare them for flooding. Floods have always occurred through history and always will. Identifying and improving road sections to flooding are of great value. The objectives of the SWAMP project are two parted. Part 1; determine the structure and requirements of a GIS-model to find blue spots. Part 2; produce guidelines on how to reduce vulnerability to flooding at blue spots. In addition, a literature review was carried out, as well as a directed study of climate change modeling and its outcomes and uncertainties.
