IRF Announces Winners of 2017 Global Road Achievement Awards

October 31, 2017
The International Road Federation has announced today the winners of the 2017 IRF Global Road Achievement Awards at the closing of the IRF Middle East & North Africa Regional Congress & Exhibition.

This year, the IRF honors 11 projects from around the world, each leading the way in innovation across major road & highway disciplines. The selection was made by an international panel of senior road development specialists.

“Much of the transport sector’s accomplishments are unnoticed by the hundreds of millions of people who benefit so greatly from the availability of safe, smart and interconnected road networks,” said IRF Chairman Abdullah Al-Mogbel. “This is precisely why the IRF’s Global Road Achievement Awards provide a rare opportunity to celebrate our industry’s successes, and highlight how our work supports broader societal goals.”

“For the past 17 years, our awards program has constituted an industry reference for innovators across the globe,” said IRF President & CEO C. Patrick Sankey. “Year after year, our sector demonstrates that it is a source of cutting-edge solutions that makes a difference in our communities. By embodying our ideal of better roads for a better world, these 11 projects join an elite circle of international laureates.”

The winning projects this year range from a pioneering road tunnel connecting Europe and Asia, to a high water/air permeability pavement treating technology, and to Dubai’s new waterway system delivered in record time.
