A major road upgrade programme is being planned for the Udmurt Republic, part of the Russian Federation. The road system in the Udmurt Republic measures some 17,400km in all. There are also 363 key bridges and overpasses, which measures some 13km in all. However neglect of the links has resulted in 12 of the bridges and overpasses becoming in serious need of repair. The Udmurt Republic Government has set a target for rebuilding 410km of key road links during 2019, as well as addressing issues for some of the most decayed bridges and overpasses.
