Greetings to all the committee members of the Road Engineering Association of Asia and Australasia (REAAA) 50th anniversary in conjunction with PIARC seminar and IRDA seminar. As a president of REAAA, it is such an honour to be in this organization that encourages all the members, developing professional, and commercial links between countries in the region in the Asia Pacific region to promote the science and practice of road engineering in this era.
Congratulations on 50th REAAA Anniversary. The continuity of our organization through 50 years, nowadays we face this new transformation of the digital era, bringing new revolutionizing in digital and technology.
Our chosen theme, “Advanced Technology Implementation towards Sustainable Road Development” will be reviewed further in the session of this event. Technology is always experiencing a development breakthrough. Implementation technology of sustainable roads is also designed for their entire lifecycle, from planning through construction, maintenance, and eventual decommissioning. Construction and maintenance of roads nowadays also are performed considering only technical conditions without giving a main role to the environmental impact.
