Winter resilience review26 Jul 2010

Learning the lessons

In the wake of the extreme cold weather experienced during the winter of 2009/10 the Transport Secretary Lord Adonis asked David Quarmby – chairman of the RAC Foundation – to undertake an independent winter resilience review.

The review was to be in two phases, reflecting the need to:

a) identify measures that can be implemented relatively quickly in preparation for next winter 2010/11, and

b) to take a longer term view of our preparedness for severe winter weather in future years.

The results of the first phase were made public in July 2010.
