Save Your Country's Roads

The full text of this PIARC pamphlet is on-line (PDF format, 650 Ko).

Building a road costs money. Without maintenance, the road deteriorates and transport costs soar. The economy suffers. Yet even small budgets make a difference.

This briefing is for those with the drive and the foresight to stop this waste. Because in many places, the need for action is not urgent - it's critical.

The briefing doesn't have all the answers, but it does show you:

  • how to recognise the problem?
  • how to get value for money?
  • who does what?
  • where next?
