The momentum continues since the first Pavement Preservation & Recycling Summit (PPRS) took place. Let us summarise some conclusions.
Over 1,000 attendees, from 60 countries, representing over 460 of the world’s leading companies in the preservation of pavements and recycling industries, gathered in Paris earlier this year to participate in the PPRS. The support shown for this event demonstrates a high level of recognition for the common challenge the road industry is facing.
The PPRS highlighted important topics and discussions about asset management, economic impacts, social expectations, funding, tools & methods for managing road assets and sustainability. All of which support the solutions for better road maintenance.
Some of the most powerful messages were presented by Jean-Francois Corté, General Secretary, World Road Association (PIARC), in his closing speech.
A number of initiatives are needed to attract new groups and in general to increase diversity in the industry. There is otherwise the risk of a serious skills shortage in the future.Read more about Talking point: recruiting new talent
