Vulnerability and accessibility of open rail routes for emergency rescue


Summary - This paper [1] examines the vulnerability and accessibility of railway networks in emergency condi- tions using the road system with particular reference to open air routes.
The goal is to implement a Decision Support Tool – DST useful to evaluate the accessibility of the railway links that make up a rail network.
The tool is used in a pre-event and a post-event phase: in the first, interventions improving accessibility can be planned and scheduled, while the second concerns joint management of emergency which requires the arrival of rescue teams as soon as possible.
