1 1.000 delegates to gather in Lisbon Financing the European Road Infrastructure Jean-Claude Roffé, Vice President & Christophe Nicodème, Director General European Union Road Federation (ERF) November 9-11, 2014 The Eight Croatian Conference on Road Maintenance European Union Road Federation 1

2 1.000 delegates to gather in Lisbon Roads are the backbone of the economy (1)  Contribution to the EU Economy:  Direct employment: 5 Million people  +/- 5 % of the EU GDP  With related employment: 14 Million people  +/- 11 % of the EU GDP  Investing in roads generates economic growth (1 € 3 €)* * UKI BH 4th Road Congress September 2014 European Union Road Federation 2

3 1.000 delegates to gather in Lisbon Trends and evolution in road maintenance expenditures European Union Road Federation 3

4 1.000 delegates to gather in Lisbon Why investing in road maintenance? Lack of investment: Possible consequences n European Union Road Federation 4

5 1.000 delegates to gather in Lisbon Example from Germany Leverkusen Bridge (A1)  High volume of traffic (chemical industry)  Ageing structure – lack of regular maintenance  Closure from Dec to March 2013 for lorries over 3,5 Tons  Estimated societal cost (loss of time and additional fuel consumption): 80 M € !  Closed again from June 2014 until…? n European Union Road Federation 5

6 1.000 delegates to gather in Lisbon Why investing in road maintenance ? Operating costs for the users Source Southern African Bitumen Association European Union Road Federation 6

7 1.000 delegates to gather in Lisbon The 3 financing approaches n European Union Road Federation 7

8 1.000 delegates to gather in Lisbon 1. Traditional approach  From year to year  Money spent when available, not when needed  No spending optimisation  Deterioration, increased safety risks, environmental and societal consequences European Union Road Federation 8

9 1.000 delegates to gather in Lisbon 2. Preventive approach  More cost-efficient  Preserving good quality road network  Optimisation in the longer run  Regular actions, reduced costs, better standards European Union Road Federation 9

10 1.000 delegates to gather in Lisbon 3. The strategic approach (RAM)  Considers the road as an asset  Systematic and permanent process  Cost-effective maintenance, upgrade and operation  Combination of:  Engineering principles  Sound business practice  Economic rationale  Provide tools for:  Organised and flexible approach  Decision making process  Achieve public’s expectations European Union Road Federation 10

11 1.000 delegates to gather in Lisbon Road Asset Management  Better knowledge  Better prioritisation  Best value for money  Better and safer roads for each € spent  Preserves the asset for the future European Union Road Federation 11

12 1.000 delegates to gather in Lisbon ERF Actions on RAM  WG on RAM  ERF Manifesto  ERF Position Paper n European Union Road Federation 12 manifesto_to_keep_Europe_moving.pdf

13 NEW CHALLENGES AND FUTURE SOLUTIONS FOR ROAD MAINTENANCE Jean-Claude Roffé Étienne le Bouteiller The Eight Croatian Conference on Road Maintenance, 2014

14 1. LATEST NEWS FROM THE IBEF 1.The IBEF gathers national associations and individual members from 20 countries 2.This represents more than 70% of the asphalt emulsions produced worldwide The Eight Croatian Conference on Road Maintenance, 2014

15 1. LATEST NEWS FROM THE IBEF The Eight Croatian Conference on Road Maintenance, 2014

16 2- THE IMPACT OF THE RECESSION ON ROAD BUDGETS The Eight Croatian Conference on Road Maintenance, 2014 Production in construction (Eurostat)

17 2. THE IMPACT OF THE RECESSION ON ROAD BUDGETS Decreasing budgets Direct impact on the road condition Increasing costs The Eight Croatian Conference on Road Maintenance, 2014

18 2. THE IMPACT OF THE RECESSION ON ROAD BUDGETS Deterioration of the pavement condition Increasing maintenance cost Increasing cost for road users Safety issues Endangering the whole economy The Eight Croatian Conference on Road Maintenance, 2014

19 2. THE IMPACT OF THE RECESSION ON ROAD BUDGETS Deterioration of the pavement condition Increasing maintenance cost Increasing cost for road users Safety issues Endangering the whole economy And we’ll save money Every $1 spent keeping a good road good saves $6 to $14 to rebuild one that has deteriorated The Eight Croatian Conference on Road Maintenance, 2014
