Abstract

The World's transport infrastructures (TI) network is facing fast changes due to population growth, mobility, business trades and globalization. More challenges are coming from unforeseen natural and human-induced hazards, including climate change's effects. Meanwhile, technology development continues apace, and new solutions from multi-disciplinary sectors could help solve the main challenges faced by the TI industry. This work presents “SMARTI”, a vision that aims at engineering and implementing concepts such as Sustainability, Multifunctionality, Automation and Resilience within the design, construction and management of TI. As a result, the paper provides roadmaps for each of the above-mentioned pillars, identifying aims, current practices and stepping stones that infrastructure managers, policymakers and governors should consider toward more sustainable TI within 2030.
