- The company will take part in the road conference to be held in Granada under the theme ‘Towards the next generation of Roads’
Madrid, 31 March 2022. Lantania will participate in the 5th Andalusian Road Congress to be held from 6-8th April at the Conference Centre in Granada, organised by the Spanish Road Association (AEC) and promoted by the Ministry of Development, Infrastructure and Land Management of the Regional Government of Andalusia. The company is also collaborating as a sponsor of the event which, under the slogan ‘Towards the next generation of Roads’, is structured around three main areas of debate and will include five working sessions.
The director of the Technical Department, Technical Office and Machinery Park of the company, Jesús Díaz, will present his work ‘Composite pavements: a sustainable solution’ at the congress. The report analyses the differences in deformation and fracture behaviour of the concrete and bituminous mix layers of composite pavements under loads, the influence of adhesion, type of interface, generated gradient and possible solutions depending on the type of rigid pavement to be built or renovated, in order to obtain more sustainable pavements.
The technical programme of the event includes seven round tables. Two of them will be attended by the infrastructure councillors of various regional governments and the general directors of Roads. The objective of the organisers and promoters of this meeting is to promote the creation of synergies in a sector that is fundamental for progress. More sustainable and respectful roads with a green seal, models to be implemented for their financing, tools and systems to provide them with intelligence without losing sight of their conservation and operation, the improvement of road safety, and the essential territorial structuring and efficiency of transport are some of the issues to be discussed.
