The physical condition of existing bridges and overpasses is a major problem of the Russian road construction industry. Other areas of concern are regulatory controls of the industry, current design standards, structural diagnostics and introduction of innovative design and monitoring technologies. Possible approaches and ways of addressing the most critical and urgent issues were discussed by the experts at the forum sessions.
The forum was sponsored by Federal Road Agency, the Russian Ministry of Transport, R.O.S.ASPALT Association, Technical Standartisation Committee No. 418, and the Russian Highways State Company (AVTODOR).
