Regions of the Far East may not fulfill the instructions of the President of Russia to double the volume of road construction

At the selector meeting of the Ministry of Transport of Russia on the activities of regional and municipal road funds in the Far Eastern Federal District, Russian Deputy Transport Minister Oleg Belozerov said that in the Kamchatka Territory, Primorye, Magadan Oblast and the Jewish Autonomous Region, the order of the President to double the volume of construction and reconstruction of motor vehicles could not be fulfilled. public roads.

Meanwhile, according to the Ministry of Transport, over the past three years, the volume of funds for the road sector, and, consequently, the cost of the regional and local road network, has more than doubled. With this in mind, the President of the Russian Federation set the task of doubling the volume of construction and reconstruction of public highways in 2013-2022 compared to the previous decade.

So, in the Far Eastern Federal District, it was envisaged to increase from 1,8 thousand km in 2003 - 2012 to 4,4 thousand km in 2013 - 2022, that is, more than 2 times. According to Oleg Belozerov, in 2013, 220 km of highways were put into operation in the Far Eastern Federal District, which is lower than the level of 2012. And in 2014 - 2016 it is planned to decrease the annual rates of commissioning.

One of the main reasons for this, the Deputy Minister called the need to preserve the existing road network, the corresponding increase in the cost of regional road funds for the repair and maintenance of roads and the lack of funds for construction and reconstruction. At the same time, Belozerov urged not to forget that the level of financial support for the industry has doubled.
