At the 16th REAAAA Road Conference held in the Philippines from September 13 to 15, our project “Construction of Submersible bridges in rural areas in Myanmar
Construction of Submersible bridges in rural areas in Myanmar” was given the Mino Best Project Award (Category II : Community Road).
The Road Engineering Association of Asia and Australasia (REAAA) is an organization that promotes the improvement of road-related technologies and the implementation of projects in countries in the Asia Pacific region.
The REAAA Road Conference has been held approximately every three years since 1976, and has served as a forum for exchange among road professionals working in various countries.
The Mino Best Project Award was established in 2016 with funds contributed by Mr. Sadamu Mino, the 10th president of REAAA, and is presented to outstanding projects in the categories of high-volume roads and community roads.
Due to the effects of the new coronavirus, the conference was held online this time, but it was as successful as before with many participants.
