Abstract

Transportation plays a pivotal role in society in the accessibility of socio-economic functions, such as education and health services. At the same time these transport networks are put under pressure due to increasing demands and the often-increasing occurrence of climate-induced events. To increase resilience of the transportation network to disruptions, network criticality has been used to prioritise segments of the network for interventions. Here we present how equity principles can be applied in the context of decision making for resilient infrastructure. This is done for both a data-rich (The Hague, The Netherlands) and data-poor (Pontianak, Indonesia) environment. The results show that depending on the underlying equity principle different intervention locations are prioritized and changes the impact for different socio-economic groups and the general population.
