A healthy transportation network should be resilient in many ways and resilience for medical emegencies or needs are one of the important factors in this regard. This paper demonstrates for such resilieince can be rapidly assessed for existing transportation networks and considers the city of Dublin as an example. To assess the resilieince, a transportation network in Dublin is chosen, considering the locations of a number of medical facilities. The impact of removal of some parts of the networks are observed to assess the resilience of a network, especially in the context of connectivity with such medical facilities. Residential, tertiary and secondary roads were considered and various nodes were removed to observe the consequences. A number of scenarios were considered and the computations were carried out within a Bi-Objective Node Removal Impact Problem formulation. The outcomes demonstrate how extensive analyses in this direction can provide better information and decisions around planning, changes or even policy instruments on transport by keeping medical facilities and emergencies as a matter of priority. Resilient designs against uncertainties at this network level will lead to pragmatic and robust networks for the future and for evolving scenarios.
