Road pavement construction is a very high capital investment, usually of public funds. It should be based on economic and environmental protection criteria. Therefore, Life Cycle Cost Analysis is necessary for selecting the most suitable for the case design of pavement. In Greece, until now, the experience in construction of rigid pavements is very limited. Flexible asphalt pavements dominate although the great inclinations, the hot climate in summer and longer service life of concrete favor concrete pavements.
