Russia is planning a major programme of transport development works. Road improvements will figure highly in the plans.
A budget in excess of US$129.3 billion has been set for transport improvements across the country. Repairs will be carried out to 16,000km of roads, while 1,700km of new roads will be built.
International transport corridors will benefit from the budget. One of the projects bring prioritised will be the road link through Russia connecting Europe with China.
