Perry, who authored the book Concrete Roads: A Sustainable Solution, will be tackling the subject at this year's African Construction and Totally Concrete Expo. The publication covers the environmental, economic and social aspects of concrete pavements and draws on international experience to demonstrate that concrete pavements are a sustainable solution for South Africa.
