Russia’s Transport Ministry is setting out its plans for a major programme of road development. Called the Safe and High-Quality Roads national project, this programme of works will be for the 2021-2030 period.
The budget calls for a massive US$174.14 billion being spent on improving Russia’s road network. The aim of the programme is to repair, maintain and upgrade some 60% of all the regional roads in Russia, as well as the links between major population centres.
The programme is intended to ensure that all urban locations with a population over 20,00 or more will benefit from Federal funding to improve roads.
