EUPAVE releases new leaflet "Concrete Pavements, for low noise performance that lasts". The leaflet is based on the full brochure "Durable Low-Noise Concrete Pavements".
Low-noise concrete pavements are the standard today. They contribute to addressing the general issue of environmental noise, as required by the Environmental Noise Directive (END) of the European Union.
In order to make the right choice of pavement, a global evaluation is needed taking into account the safety, durability, the life cycle cost and the surface characteristics. EUPAVE reiterates that concrete is the clear choice for a sustainable pavement when all aspects are considered.
