More than 5,000 km of first class highways to be built in Russia by 2020

In recent years, Russia has embarked on an ambitious multi-billion rouble programme to improve and enlarge its road infrastructure network. Roads are by far the most important means of transport in Russia, accounting for nearly 68% of the total volume of freight transported across the country over the year and for over 70% of total passenger traffic.
According to our latest report entitled “Transport infrastructure construction market in Russia 2013 − Development forecasts for 2013-2015”, although federal roads account for only 6% of roads in Russia, these are responsible for about 50% of all traffic in the country. However, only 40% of the country’s federal roads meet regulatory compliance requirements. This share is to be increased to as much as 85% by 2020, or about 46,000 km of federal roads are expected to have reached the required standards by that time.
