The distance from the regional center to the northernmost town of the island is about 850 kilometers. At the moment, more than 500 kilometers have been paved. The remaining 350 kilometers are divided into three sections: Smirnykh - Tymovskoye and Tymovskoye - Nogliki, 100 kilometers each, Okha - Nogliki - 150 kilometers.

According to Khoroshavin, the most important objects of financing for the regional government are infrastructure and construction, including roads. As soon as additional revenues appear in the budget. priority attention will be given to these areas. Already now, the regional authorities annually invest 11,5 billion rubles on the maintenance and reconstruction of roads. According to the assurances of the road workers, they are able to master even more substantial sums.
