The reason for the poor quality of Russian roads was named in the Accounts Chamber

The reason for the poor quality of Russian roads was named in the Accounts Chamber

The Accounts Chamber checked the implementation of the national program “Safe and high-quality roads”. It turned out that regional roads receive eight times less funding than federal ones.

According to the press service of the Accounts Chamber, the auditors organized an audit of the purchases of Rosavtodor over the past two years. The reason is the low percentage of bringing the roads to a standard condition. Over the past two years, the length of federal highways in the normative state has increased by only 7%, the total number being 84,8%. Things are much worse on regional roads. Over two years, the indicator has improved by 1,1%, amounting to only 44,2%.

According to the findings of the auditors, the reason is insufficient financing of repair work on regional roads. During the analyzed period, only 29,6% of the standard amount of funding was directed to regional and intermunicipal highways, and the amount of maintenance of one km of a regional road was almost eight times lower than the federal one: 288 thousand rubles per km against 2,2 million rubles.

To solve the problem of underfunding of works on regional highways, the Accounts Chamber proposes to change the mechanism for allocating the budget by Rosavtodor for road maintenance. Over the past two years, Rosavtodor, according to the Accounting Chamber, has seen a low level of competition in public procurement. Moreover, most often contracts were concluded with one supplier. Savings on competitive procedures were less than 1%.
