Improving the resilience of the United Kingdom's road network to the impact of severe winter weather

The severe weather of the three winters between 2008 and 2011 severely challenged the UK's ability to keep its national road network open, safe and serviceable.

This paper describes how the events of these winters unfolded in relation to their impact on the road transport network, the outcomes of the reviews and inquiries that followed, and consequently how the nation's resilience to future severe winter weather events has improved.
