ABSTRACT
Continuous pavements reinforced concrete designed and constructed properly require a very low conservation, offsetting the on-cost of steel armor. Therefore, today they are one of the favorite choices in many countries for motorways with heavy traffic. In the article, after a brief presentation of this technique and its historical development, some recent works are described: the tunnels Cointe in Belgium, reinforcing a section of the Brussels motorway - Ostende, the first toll road in the United Kingdom and several roundabouts in Belgium.
