A little history

The National Symposium Way and Works of Local Administration was first held in 1972. Torremolinos hosted that first edition and, after thirty years, the only Congress in Spain dedicated to addressing the problems of local roads has accumulated many experiences.

Over sixteen editions, the VYODEAL brought together about four thousand delegates, both from government (central, regional and provincial), and companies linked to national and international road. This has consolidated its position as one of the meetings on road infrastructure more veterans of our country and essential forum for discussion of the various aspects of provincial roads, both from an economic and social perspective, and from other points of view, including which include management of the road network, planning, construction, design and maintenance, environmental impact and road safety.

From the hand of the Spanish Road Association since 1974 (year of the second Symposium), the real protagonists of VYODEAL have been more than 68.000 kilometers of our territory that configure the secondary network, which are the only means of connection for approximately half of Spanish municipalities, whose total number is around the 8.000.

The VYODEAL to be held in Seville in 2003 is a young, VYODEAL renovated, but on par with more experience than ever, which seeks to reaffirm the role of the Provincial Councils recognized-little-so important in the world of road infrastructure, and emphasize again the work of technicians who have to deal with maintaining a network in good condition, for many citizens, means the only link with the rest of the territory.
