IMPROVING ROAD MAINTENANCE MANAGEMENT PRACTICES IN RUSSIA

N. A. Popov () and N. A. Osokin

Strategic decisions and risk management, 2021

Abstract: The level of transport infrastructure development is one of the key determinants of economic growth. In 2018, 67.1% of all transported goods in Russia were delivered via road transport. However, Russia’s motor transport system has yet to come close to fulfilling its full potential – 57.6% of public roads do not meet regulatory maintenance requirements. The prevailing statistics highlights the task of ensuring the safety of roads. This issue is especially relevant during winter months, when the roads experience maximum climatic and physico-chemical effects. This article analyzes the road safety system of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation, considers the main regulatory documents governing the activities of road work suppliers and executive authorities in the field of road maintenance. The authors analyzed the best foreign practices in road maintenance policy. The main result of the study is the proposal to introduce a mechanism for servicing roads using a performance based contract to replace to cost based road maintenance contracts, which are the most widely applied in Russia.
