Rastoča pomembnost vzdrževanja cest – asfalt nudi rešitve.

Poročila kažejo, da je ustrezno vzdrževanje cestne infrastrukture bistveno za gospodarsko in socialno blaginjo narodov. Zadnje poročilo PIARC (Svetovno združenje za ceste) iz leta 2014 ponovno poudarja ta pomen. Asfalt je najboljša rešitev za vzdrževanje cest, ker ga hitro nanašamo, zagotavlja stroškovno učinkovite rešitve in je obstojen. Viskozno-elastične lastnosti asfalta so idealne za ta namen.

On 16-17 December 2020, EAPA and the research project PavementLCM co-organised a webinar on the Sustainability Assessment of Asphalt Pavements, which gathered more than 150 experts from 35 countries around the world. In this video, Dr Breixo Gomez, EAPA Technical Director and Prof. Davide LoPresti, Coordinator of PavementLCM, summarise the highlights of the Webinar and discuss how to further develop the topic in future events.

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.
