XXVIIth World Road Congress
Proceedings of the Congress

National reports

Each PIARC member country was invited to prepare a national report for the Congress. The aim is to collect the most recent best practices, in addition to the work carried out by the Technical Committees and Task forces over the period 2020-2023.
To this end, the Coordinators of the strategic themes have each identified a specific theme and organized an international survey of member countries. They have then prepared a synthesis of this information, and they organize the strategic orientation sessions. 

The four themes

  • Theme 1 - Road and road transport in a changed world
  • Theme 2 - Mobility and Equity
  • Theme 3 - New challenges and initiatives for improving safety and sustainability
  • Theme 4 - From cradle to grave – Improved life cycle management of road infrastructure in the course of digital transformation
