Abstract

Today's needs of urban transportation including roads, railways, airports and harbours demand significant resources for infrastructure development in view of rapid and efficient public and commercial (freight) services. In most cases, authorities have had difficulties in meeting these service demands due to the rapidly growing public, industrial, mining and agricultural sectors in many parts of the world. In order to maximise efficiency and to reduce the costs of maintenance, sound technical knowledge is required. This general report presents major technical advancements around the globe encompassing 31 articles from 19 countries and it is classified into 3 sessions, namely: "Rail session", "Pavement session" and others.
