EUPAVE is convinced that increased competition between pavement industries should be a common thread in processes and policies to procure pavement in Europe. Today, many Member States and local authorities stick blindly to their tradition of considering only asphalt pavement solutions, despite the fact that long-lasting concrete pavements are very competitive in other Member States.
Ensuring more competition between pavement industries increases public spending efficiency and stimulates innovation. It’s a win-win for everyone – taxpayers, public authorities and industry!
