Growing importance of road maintenance – asphalt offers solutions.

Reports show that adequate maintenance of road infrastructure is essential to the economic and social welfare of nations. The latest PIARC report (World Roads Association) from 2014 underlines this importance again. Asphalt is the best solution for maintaining roads because it is quick to pave, provides cost-efficient solutions and is durable. The visco-elastic properties of asphalt are ideal for that purpose.
