Instituted in 2000, the Awards have distinguished more than 200 programs, projects and technologies from around the world. This year, the IRF honours 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."
The winning projects this year range from a 130km expressway traversing a national park in Guizhou Province, China, with a minimised environmental footprint, to a sophisticated multimodal travel demand tool that uses AI and Big Data analytics to support decision-making processes in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
HE Adil Karaismailoglu, minister of Transport & Infrastructure of Turkey accepting the award in the "Construction Methodology" category stated: “Winning another IRF Global Road Achievement Award confirm our project’s inspiring significance in terms of contracting and engineering. We wholeheartedly thank the international panel of judges for this valued and meaningful award."
