Congress Theme

Roads and mobility - Creating new value from transport

Roads have long played an integral part in the life, cultural exchange, and economic development of mankind. Especially in the automobile age, roads greatly contributed to the rapid global development and the rise of modern civilization.

The core value of roads is to enable safe and quick transportation of people and goods. Road travel today increasingly involves advanced environmental and information telecommunications technologies, and integration of roads in their environment is more than ever required. Sustainability of the road transport system has become key for the social and economic benefits of our communities. The roads of the future are expected to create new spaces with the adjoining land, generate energy using sunlight and geothermal heat, and create a new culture and social functions to satisfy all kinds of needs.

Now is the time for experts in road transportation to explore new roles of roads and facilitate their advancement by recognizing the enormous potential of roads and supporting the values that may lead to various advanced technologies.

The 25th World Road Congress Seoul 2015 will establish concepts and discuss strategies to create new values in road transportation based on the four strategic themes of the World Road Association (PIARC) : Management and Performance; Access and Mobility; Safety; and Infrastructure.
