The Belgian Road Association (ABR-BWV) is an apolitical non-profit organization that unites the various actors - from both the public and the private sector - involved in the construction, management and operation of road infrastructure in Belgium.

It aims to be an exchange and promotion forum for the road branch, by encouraging reflection on a vision of the future based on sustainable development.

ABR-BWV is also the Belgian National Committee of the World Road Association (PIARC). As such, it is the Belgian link of this Association and coordinates the participation of the Belgian delegates in PIARC activities.

ABR-BWV organizes a Belgian Road Congress every four years. This event is an appointment not to be missed by road professionals and the flagship activity of the organization.


The Belgian Road Association (ABR-BWV) was founded in 2000 by merging two earlier associations. It continues a long-standing tradition of participation in PIARC, with Belgium as one of the founding members of the Association.

ABR-BWV today

The Belgian Road Association (ABR-BWV) gathers representatives of public authorities and institutions at the various levels of power (federal, regional, local), as well as representatives of the private sector: contractors, suppliers, consultants, professional federations, etc.

In the somewhat complex Belgian landscape, it is a unique meeting and exchange forum for the various actors in the road branch.
Traditionally, ABR-BWV aims to promote technical progress in the construction, maintenance and operation of roads. But it also supports initiatives in the areas of mobility and road traffic.
