Road transportation of dangerous goods quantitative risk assessment and route comparison

Abstract

Transportation of dangerous goods (TDG) by road creates risk for the people present on and along the routes (road users and surrounding population). To minimise them, is it better to have TDG going through a city or on the contrary by a longer detour through less populated areas? The choice is not always easy. It may become very difficult when the detour goes through tunnels. There, accidents may have developments and consequences very different from what might happen on an open air route. To make the right choice it becomes necessary to use a QRA (quantitative risk assessment) approach dealing with the accident scenarios likely to occur, their probability and possible consequences. It may be useful to identify the DG (dangerous goods) classes which contribute most to the risk and examine the interest of nonuniform strategies, i.e., different routing for certain DG.
