the European Union member states.
The present volume of heavy road transport requires
a sustainable road infrastructure immediately.
There is a constant need for new resistant pavement materials,
that should comply with the EU regulations
is to develop appropriate tools and procedures
for the rapid and cost-effective rehabilitation and
maintenance of roads
in the EU New Member
we are searching for materials and technologies for
road pavement construction and rehabilitation that would:
- behave satisfactorily in a typical climate,
- have an acceptable environmental impact,
- be easy to incorporate
within existing technologies,
- be cost-effective and easy
implementing materials for road construction,
taking into account the tradition,
the availability of materials and construction techniques.

Goal: to develop a concept of high modulus asphalt mixtures (HMAC)
forthe implementation in the Central and Eastern European countries
Preparation of initial recommendations
Laboratory implementation and tests
Construction of trial sections
Accelerated loading tests – June 2008
Analysis and final report (recommendations) - February 2009
Test 1 – direct comparison between AC and HMAC
Test 2 – Innovative structures
Upgrading of roads – test fields in Poland Implementation of high modulus asphalt concrete concept
SPENS dissemination activities are the task of FEHRL representatives(Forum of European Highway Research Laboratories)
The Coordination Action CERTAIN will work on complementary dissemination and implementation issues.
DISSEMINATION ACTIVITIES 2009-2010
the executive summary of the final report, and some other documents, will be available in five languages (September 2009),
technical backup for some national and international workshops will be provided. The regional workshops will be performed in the mother-tongue of the organisers.
SPENS (2006-2009) is in the midpoint of the work.
It is very important to share the experience gained not only within SPENS but also within other (national etc) research projects.
