IRF has announced the winners of the 2018 IRF Global Road Achievement Awards, a global competition to recognise outstanding achievement by road professionals. Instituted in 2000, the Awards have distinguished 150 programs, projects and products from around the world.

This year, the Washington-based IRF Global is honouring 11 projects from around the world, each leading the way in innovation across major road and highway disciplines. The selection was made by an international panel of senior road development specialists. "As an industry, we understand the importance of setting a long-term agenda for our research activities and capital investments" said IRF chairman Abdullah Al-Mogbel. "By promoting innovations and the successes in our industry, we can provide a forward-looking road map for others to follow."

The winning projects this year range from a floating bridge across Lake Washington to weather-responsive variable speed enforcement systems.
