Design documentation of the project Construction of the Moscow–St Petersburg highway at the 543–684 km section is available in Russian at the link http://russianhighways.ru/en/for_investor/investment_projects/stage_of_implementation/.
A road safety demonstration project in Odessa, Ukraine has shown that saving lives does not have to cost a lot of money. The project, financed by the European Union and supported by the Eastern Alliance for Safe and Sustainable Transport (EASST), was run between June and November 2011 and showed a dramatic improvement in road safety for very small expenditures. The project is highly replicable.

IRF represented at the Asphalt Rubber Conference 2012, Munich
A good road infrastructure is the prerequisite for mobility and thus
also for prosperity and growth. A key factor in establishing and
maintaining efficient infrastructure is high-quality road construction
materials. Under this topic, this year’s Asphalt Rubber conference was
held in Eu-rope, namely in Munich. Nearly 250 participants from 30
countries listened to presentations re-garding rubber-modified asphalt.
This Conference, like previous Asphalt Rubber (AR) Confer-ences, focused
on all aspects of the design, life cycle cost, construction, research,
energy and environmental benefits, maintenance, recycling, tire/pavement
noise reduction and production of asphalt rubber as a binder or use in a
hot mix. Particular emphasis and priority was given to papers about
asphalt-rubber as defined by ASTM, i.e. at least 15 percent crumb rubber
derived from recycled waste tires in the asphalt-rubber binder.
