Transport of dangerous substances crossing urban areas in France

Conference:

Abstract

Many studies of Hazardous Material Transportation have been made in France in the past few years at a local level. A typical case study is described here. A new road, the B.U.S. (i.e. Boulevard Urbain Sud) is under construction in the industrial southern surroundings of LYONS. Its impact on the local vulnerability was deemed to be complex and raised some concern. The general flow of vehicles nearby hazardous installations is to be modified and road users can become potential victims of an accident in a fixed installation. But the pattern of Hazardous Goods Traffic is also likely to be affected. Therefore a study devoted to the assessment of the balance of positive and negative impacts and the identification of the action that might be undertaken in order to improve that balance has been undertaken. The study is a comparative study, the levels of risk before and after the road construction are compared. That comparison has been carried out at two geographical level; the `direct impact area` of the new road, and the `indirect impact area`, which corresponds to the sections of the network on which Hazardous Goods Traffic is modified by available of the new road. First the interrelations between  More>>

First the interrelations between a road and industrial risk are identified. Second the influence of the B.U.S. on risk factors is modelled and eventually the quantitative assessment is performed, the spatial description of the risk being emphasized. 2 refs., 5 figs.}
