XXIIIrd World Road Congress, 16-21 September 2007

"Make high-strength, pleasant, user-friendly [roads] so that once people are brought closer together, they can get to know one another better and pursue with confident ardour the joint civilising task that will achieve a better humanity." 

Louis Barthou
Minister of Transport

«In 1908, 27 countries met in Paris for the 1st World Road Congress.

In 2007, almost a century later, France hopes to welcome over a hundred countries to share once again the new ideas and the technological advances in roadworks throughout the world.

We'll be delighted to welcome you. So see you in Paris.» 

Gilles de Robien
Minister of Equipment

Come and celebrate a hundred years of progress in Road Transport

A stone's throw away from the Arc de Triomphe, come and meet, exchange, share and enjoy. There are four strategic themes:

  • governance and management of the road system,
  • sustainable mobility,
  • safety and road operations,
  • quality of road infrastructures.
