New Delhi — India’s Central Road Research Institute organized a two-day international conference titled “Pavements and Computational Approaches” from 16-17 November 2018, at its premises in New Delhi. The objective of the meeting was to deliberate upon advancements in pavement technology and road infrastructure engineering across the world, with particular emphasis to the requirements of developing countries. Experts discussed issues related to the design and construction of pavements, material characterization, computational analysis, and modeling. Deliberations during the conference brought out new thoughts on technology up-gradation and its successful implementation in the field.

Nitin Gadkari, India’s Minister of Road Transport & Highways, said that the mission of the Road Transport & highways Ministry is to build high-quality roads at low costs. He called upon the experts at the conference to be ready to experiment with innovative technology, make all possible use of indigenous raw material including waste material, and promote the pre-cast technology. He said the thrust of technological innovation should be on reducing costs and time for completion of projects without any compromise on quality.

The crumbling infrastructure, road congestion, growth in heavy vehicle traffic, and insufficient maintenance have rendered the road transport inefficient in developing countries. Significant challenges to the road network require a clear focus on enhanced pavement design, construction, performance evaluation, management and preservation for developing long-lasting, low-maintenance pavements.

Nearly 250 delegates including researchers, entrepreneurs, academicians and field engineers attended the conference.
