Automated vehicles face several challenges when planning their actions in an uncertain and partially known urban environment. Creating optimal and feasible paths in those scenarios in a reduced runtime is a difficult problem. A planner adapted to a cluster of scenarios and integrated in an hierarchical planning system with other modules is a viable solution. Such a structure would require a behavioural planner to share computational resources between the planners. A contingency planner was developed for emergency situations in urban traffic, with the aim to compute a safe maneuver in a 0.1[s] time frame. In this paper, we present a continuing anytime based search algorithm, which allows the heuristic to be sensitive to the environment while preserving sub-optimally bound solution and completeness properties. It is provided simulation results for an emergency situation to demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed approach. An environment sensitive heuristic allows a better informed search, which we believe could be adaptable to a wide range of scenarios.
