30 August 2022
The main topics of this fifth fact sheet are the long service life of concrete pavements, their low environmental impact and cost over the life-cycle and the limited maintenance they require, causing minimal disruption.
“Roads are essential for the transportation of goods and people and thus play an important role in a country’s economic and social development. Therefore, we need roads that allow a smooth traffic flow through a high elvel of availability. This in turn means that the number of construction site for repairs, maintenance or reconstruction must be limited”.
EUPAVE already released 4 fact sheets:
