We study a single-commodity Robust Network Design problem (sRND) defined on an undirected graph. Our goal is to determine minimum cost capacities such that any traffic demand from a given uncertainty set can be satisfied by a feasible single-commodity flow. We consider two ways of representing the uncertainty set, either as a finite list of scenarios or as a polytope. We propose a branch-and-cut algorithm to derive optimal solutions to sRND, built on a capacity-based integer linear programming formulation. It is strengthened with valid inequalities derived as {0,1/2}-Chvátal-Gomory cuts. Since the formulation contains exponentially many constraints, we provide practical separation algorithms. Extensive computational experiments show that our approach is effective in comparison to existing approaches from the literature as well as to solving a flow based formulation by a general purpose solver.
