The focus of attention is therefore, on maintenance techniques and refurbishment methods which allow the working life of the basic road structure to be extended in a cost-effective and technically reliable manner. One method which has been successfully used world-wide for more than 30 years is the maintenance of asphalt and concrete roads using geosynthetic interlayers. This method represents an economic means of considerably increasing the maintenance intervals and thus the working life of the road.
