Emergency Preparedness & Crisis Management

Public transport networks are susceptible to a range of incidents, which can impact service and need to be prepared for and managed. From accidents to weather events to terrorist attacks, incidents can range from the relatively minor localised routine emergency to the full scale crisis and everything in between. Planning and practicing response is sound practice to ensure business continuity and a resilient network. Training is essential in order for staff to have the skills necessary for the issues they face. And when something happens, a coordinated and well-managed response is essential.

Antwerp's Marketplace for Mobility: partnering with private mobility service providers (Belgium)

English

Antwerp is a vital node in the European road network. To improve accessibility and create the right infrastructure for safe transport, several major construction projects have started in the Antwerp region over the last year.
