Asphalt pavement can be quickly and efficiently maintained and upgraded when needed.

Maintaining and upgrading roads to meet increasing traffic and user demand requires a surface that can be quickly and efficiently applied and that also provides a road surface that lasts for year after year in all conditions, needing only simple but cost-effective maintenance.

Asphalt meets these needs better than any other type of road surface, offering shorter construction times and easier repair.

Increases in the European road freight transport, vehicles weight and frequency of extreme climatic events are deteriorating the European road network at an anomalously fast rate, bringing it close to the end of its service life and requiring more frequent maintenance operations. In this unfavourable scenario, road transport is also nowadays experiencing one of the greatest revolutions of its history, with the arrival of new users, such as the autonomous, electric and high-capacity vehicles, which will help mankind to fight Climate Change and increase road safety. However, all these new vehicles have also characteristics, which may reduce the durability of the road pavements. This third video of the EAPA Series “Generation Asphalt”, analyses the potential risks of the new mobility and how the asphalt industry is getting ready for the challenge.
