Many countries are exploring the use of concrete to improve the durability and reliability of their road networks. However, many developers, agencies, and companies in the construction industry do not yet have sufficient experience in the use of concrete pavement. This can lead to poorly planned, supervised, or executed infrastructure that requires premature and costly repairs or maintenance. This guide explains the key issues to consider and how to avoid potential risks when planning and constructing concrete pavement.
