Abstract:

This study extends previous research into the transportation implications of a crisis relocation by 1 investigating the effects of a nuclear attack on the reconfigured transportation system and the relocated population, 2 identifying and evaluating alternative means of providing transportation system support to the relocated survivors of such an attack, and 3 reviewing existing relocation guidance in the light of probable postattack consequences. This research evaluates the problem of providing transportation system support following both a relocation effort and a nuclear attack, and systematically proposes and evaluates alternative solutions to this problem. Where applicable, the proposed solutions are examined in detail in a case study of Colorado Springs, Colorado. The study addresses the principal components of the transportation system vehicles, road and rail networks, and fuel. More than enough vehicles are expected to survive an attack to meet essential transportation needs, although problems of organization and coordination can be anticipated.
