The first inter-new-school grant between Geography (Sue Dawson)  and Civil Engineering (Mike Brown, Jonathan Knappett) together with TRL (Transport research Laboratory) and Transport Scotland, the project with a 4-mmont PDRA, will use existing research data to develop a robust risk management tool, easily utilized by asset managers to tool that can be used by industry to examine rural road transport assets in Scotland that are likely to be at risk from the effects of extreme rainfall and storms and differing future climate change scenarios.
