Improving coordination in case of weather problems incidents

Weather problems, like strong rains, wind and especially snow, suppose an important problem to traffic flow. The special characteristics of weather problems, with a big area of influence, long time effects and difficult forecast, implies the coordinated actuation of different national organisations (traffic managers, maintenance works, traffic police, etc) These problems could be increased when the incident location is nearby a cross border area. In this case, the coordination between different countries and their organisations is necessary. This kind of coordination presents different problems. The main purpose of this paper is to present the traffic management plans in case of weather problems and the strategies for integrating information and coordinating the different international authorities that participate in the ARTS project.
