The Annual Roads Conventions are forums organized for exchange of knowledge and information on the road transport sub-sector.  Topics normally cover a wide spectrum of issues ranging from technologies, policies, management, financing, safety and environment.

There are concerns on issues of quality and safety of roads, delays in execution of road projects as well as maintenance of the roads to ensure that they last long and contribute fully to economic growth of nations and their people. To further discuss these issues TARA is collaborating with IRF in organising the ARC 2014 under the theme of ‘Roads Development: Challenges and Solutions’. The Convention will cover the following sub-themes:

§  Designing and constructing  longer lasting, less costing and safer roads
§  Long delays in completion of road projects; Causes, costs and possible solutions
