The International Road Federation (IRF Global) has announced the winners of the 2022 IRF Global Road Achievement Awards. This worldwide competition highlights the innovative, practical, creative, cost-saving and sustainable solutions the road industry provides to societies and economies.

Instituted in 2000, the Awards have distinguished more than 200 programmes, projects and technologies from around the world. This year, the IRF is highlighting 11 projects from around the world, each leading the way in innovation across major road and mobility disciplines. The selection was made by an international panel of senior road development specialists.

According to IRF Global chairman Dr Bill Sowell, “the winners of the 2022 IRF Global Road Achievement Awards are an asset to an industry that is constantly investing in new solutions to deliver gains and sustainability advances that benefit everyone.”
