Driving development and best practice methods of design, construction, maintenance and safe operation of Africa’s road network

Road transportation plays an increasingly important role in the economic development of the region. With pressing needs to expand existing networks to keep pace with economic needs coupled with the burden of maintenance, financing gaps and the desperate need to address road safety across the continent, this meeting could not come at a better time.

Hosted by the IRF Geneva Programme Centre (IRF-GPC) and organised by IQPC, the Africa Road and Bridge Forum, due to take place from 30-31 January 2017, will be a regional gathering of government authorities and relevant industry stakeholders to discuss these issues and to find solutions to engineer and maintain more sustainable, cost-effective and safe road networks.
