This CWA proposes a common set of indicators to be used in road sustainability assessment, which refer to pavement materials (concrete and asphalt) and is in the process of getting approved by the CEN Technical Committee (TC) 350. A meeting has already been scheduled on 22nd-23rd September in the Netherlands to agree a final document after this public consultation period ends on 2nd August.
