Leaflet – Concrete: a Sustainable Partner of Urban Transport Infrastructure
27 February 2018
In the beginning of the 20th century, many European cities had a tramway, but those disappeared around the 1950’s when the car became the modern way of transportation and metro lines were built in the big cities. However, tramways made their come-back in the 1990’s when the cities started rethinking their mobility concept and spatial planning. Together with bus transport, cycling and walking, they are today the dominant transport modes in urban areas. Both trams and buses require a high quality and, if possible, dedicated infrastructure, for which concrete offers safe and reliable long life solutions.
