Russia is planning major road improvements and upgrades for the Krasnodar Region and neighbouring Crimea Region.
In the Krasnodar Region over 681km of roads will be upgraded and improved. The work is expected to cost US$253.7 million, with the work due for completion by 2024. So far, the Krasnodar Region has already improved 2,488km of roads in the 2015-2019 period.
The Federal Road Agency will channel $102 million for works to upgrade roads in the annexed Crimea Region. The aim is to improve 166km of road links. Many of Crimea’s roads are in a poor state and the region’s economy has been depressed, with the previous conflict having been a factor.
