New guidance documents to address the impacts of climate change on regional and local roads
To support the local authority sector in this regard, the Climate Action Regional Offices, led by the Atlantic Seaboard South office is developing resources that will guide local authority staff in the implementation of climate adaptation procedures and develop a range of design, maintenance and rehabilitation strategies and approaches to adapt the Regional and Local road network to climate change events.
A Phase 2 Project Working Group has been established and is made up of representatives of the County and City Management Association Climate Action, Transport and Networks Committee, Department of Transport, Road Management Office, and Munster Technological University. It is expected that the Project will be completed in the latter half of 2022/early 2023.
