Along the Brazilian federal highways, it is possible to find several occurrences of environmental liabilities. Environmental liabilities are responsible for part of the demand for public investment. Thus, to understand the investment necessary, this work aims to compare the costs demanded to recover an environmental liability in Brazil with worldwide. Besides contrasting the most used geotechnical recovery methods, as a function of the technology employed. To be able to compare one country with another, a generic model was adopted. To obtain data, a cost simulation system was used, with works of engineering available on a web platform. Thus, it can be understood the demand of resources necessary to adequate the non-concessional Brazilian road network. By analyzing the approached data, it is possible to identify the connection between the high demand for resources and the vast amount of nonconformities along the highways, as a consequence of Brazilian legislative history.
