    The key IPCC Climate Change projections are set to have significant impacts on the design, construction, maintenance and operation of global road infrastructure.

This in turn results in significant [...]

    Currently road administrations of many countries face austerities and have to tackle some difficult issues: investing on extension of road network, maintenance and rehabilitation of existing aged roads, prompt recovery of road operation from the damage caused by large-scale disasters, and creation of safe road space.
