Even though urbanization will continue to be the main societal trend in the coming decades, the majority of road networks by length will remain in rural areas. The adequate condition of this vascular road network system will be critical for the support of society at large and for this reason the development of sustainable asset management for rural roads should not be forgotten. This session will focus on the current and future challenges in rural road asset management and will also present research results and solutions that have proven to be successful, such as the ROADEX projects and PEHKO project.
