We are working
for more sustainable and
environmental-friendly roads
in the European Union

Nowadays, construction and maintenance of roads are performed considering only technical conditions without giving a main role to the environmental impact. The SustainEuroRoad LIFE Project proposes to create, validate and implement an innovative software to evaluate and reduce the environmental impact of road construction and maintenance in Europe.

Considering the engineering divergences in the EU road network, the consortium will consequently validate the new software on different infrastructures and environments. SustainEuroRoad will be tested in four real scenarios (i.e. France, Germany, Hungary, Spain) under different technical requirements (new road vs renovation, motorways vs ordinary road) and meteorological conditions (Atlantic in France, Continental in Hungary and Germany, Mediterranean in Spain).

Once properly validated, the software could be used in the technical specifications of every work on roads in Europe, implying a significant improvement for the sector promoting sustainability which main results will be the reduction of 37% of energy consumption, 31% of CO2 emissions and 70% of natural resources.
