The Allies won the Second World War and the United States became the political and military power in the Western world. His primacy extended to all areas. In 1948, US road techniques are implemented in other countries of the Americas.

Associations, companies and administration sponsor the creation of the International Road Federation (IRF), the International Road Federation. Almost all the countries of the world attended the ceremony of its constitution, but the General Director of Spanish Roads was refused entry. The relations between both countries were going through one of their worst moments, so much so that the Americans had even withdrawn their ambassador from Madrid.
