BSRIA is involved in 2 of the DURABROADS work packages

DURABROADS project is the design, development and demonstration of cost-effective, eco-friendly and optimized long-life roads, more adapted to freight corridors and climate change by means of innovative designs and the use of greener materials improved by nanotechnology.

The optimization of current construction, maintenance and rehabilitation procedures is also aimed in this project. Thus, existing constraints concerning these procedures and techniques to withstand challenges as the climate change impact and the high vehicle traffic loads of freight corridors will be identified and evaluated in order to provide to highway managers with more affordable, safer and environmentally-friendly practices to manage the road asset.

The project has 9 Partners from 7 countries and has a value of 2 million Euros

BSRIA is involved in 2 of the projects 8 work packages, covering:

  • Evaluation of DURABROADS new products via Life Cycle Costing (LCC) and Life Cycle Asessment (LCA)
  • Dissemination

The project started on 1st October 2013 and will be active for 3.5 years. For more information visit the DURABROADS website.
