Dear Editors, Members of the International Editorial Board, Authors and Readers of the Articles of “The Baltic Journal of Road and Bridge Engineering“


On behalf of the Editorial Board I would like to present the Baltic Road Association (BRA) – supporter and sponsor of the journal.

The formal history of the Baltic co-operation in road field goes back to 1927 starting with engineering consultations in Riga. The present Baltic Road Association (initially BRC – Baltic Road Council) was officially established in 1989 with the aim of co-ordinating the activities of the Baltic road organisations in order to work
out and implement the road maintenance strategy of the region.

The BRA has national sections in each of the three countries. Each section delegates 4 representatives to the Council of the Association, one of them being the chairman, one the deputy chairman and two members.

The Council of the BRA holds regular meetings at least twice a year. Each Baltic country in turn is responsible for managing the work of the Association for three years. Consequently, the chairman of the leading country is the Chairman of the BRA for the three year managing period.

The BRA has had working contacts with the Nordic Road Association since the 1990’s. The Memorandum of Understanding as a basis of the co-operation between the two organizations was signed for the first time in 1992 and renewed in 2001. At present the partners have set up a special project “NordBalt” (1996) and launched regular secretary work (1999) for co-ordinating joint training seminars and other common activities.
