Abstract

The present paper outlines a new proposed risk assessment methodology for transportation of dangerous goods, either by rail or by road, taking into account for the joint calculation of frequencies and consequences, the spatial infrastructure related information embedded into a GIS type database. The methodology is implemented through a user-friendly decision support system (DSS), a specialised type of software platform named CARGO.
