It is a great honor for us along with Indonesian Road Development Association (IRDA) to be hosting this prominent conference that not only promotes innovative ways in road-related engineering, but also practices cutting-edge services that create productive technological shares within the industry. This conference marks revolutionary breakthroughs in the fields of road engineering by ushering in innovative development through digitization.
This is a challenge for all of us as we continue to develop and improve our skills, practices and ways that reflect our industry and impacts on our communities by allowing the adaptation of technological movements in the completion of various tasks and projects.
Our chosen theme, “Advanced Technology Implementation towards Sustainable Road Development,” emphasize the necessity to continue embracing latest technologies and seek innovation that can make infrastructure operations more efficient and sustainable in ine with our collective quest to provide quality roads for all. The indispensable role that technology plays has long been proven by is significant contributions in numerous industries, including the growth of the construction industry. Breakthrough technologies are now revolutionizing the way the sector functions, bringing in major developments in planning, design, and construction roadways towards green infrastructure.
