In the Netherlands there is a complex road network of about 140.000 kilometers, of which 5.500 kilometers are national roads. These national roads are very busy, so, it’s understandable that when something disrupts the traffic flow this can have a big impact. The size and consequences of the impact of a disruption is indicated by the resilience. Resilience of a transportation system indicates how well the system can withstand and recover from disruptions. A resilient transport system is able to withstand disruptions, and able to recover from them quickly.
