EDITORIAL

Hello,

I am pleased to present the April edition of the "Newsletter" of the World Road Association (PIARC). With Marina Domingo Monsonís, our new Communications Advisor, we redesigned its format for easier and faster reading. Our Newsletter is complementary to the Association's other communication media, https://www.piarc.org/en/, the Routes/Roads magazine, and our targeted mailings, which I suggest that you consult regularly.

In this edition, we mention, among others, two recent reports, among the 40 which we produced in the 2012-2015 work cycle. These reports are available free of charge and are the result of the work of the Technical Committees of the Association, which involve over 1,000 international experts. A big thank you to them.

Finally, please know that the General Secretariat of PIARC is at your disposal for any possible joint project. Do not hesitate and contact us at info@piarc.org.
