The implementation of the project "Safe and Quality roads" was discussed in Moscow on Wednesday, December 6, 2017, in a videoconference mode.
Opening the meeting, Dmitry Medvedev noted the urgency of the road repair work for each subject of the federation - the participant of the program.
"The condition of roads is something that any person deals with every day. Of course, we work with the regions to improve roads and streets. We allocate money, we repair routes, we build new routes. Given the importance of the problem, highlighted this topic in the priority project "Safe and Quality roads" and decided to first concentrate on large cities, because there is the most difficult situation, "- said the Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation.
He said that more than 31 billion rubles were allocated from the federal budget to implement the program, and taking into account regional financing, the total amount of funds was about 65 billion rubles.
"This year more than 5 thousand km of roads were repaired. As a result, by the end of the year, more than half of the roads and streets of participating cities have been brought to the normative state. By the way, this figure is even higher than the plans that we had. Next year we are going to move ahead of these indicators, " - Dmitry Medvedev added.
The Prime Minister thanked the governors who actively participated in the work on the project
"I want to express a special gratitude to those heads of subjects (many of them are now participating in the meeting), who personally headed the project teams. This always has a positive effect on the work on the project, " -he stressed.

The Penza region took the second place among the subjects of the Russian Federation following the results of the project implementation. 129 objects with a total length of 94.84 kilometers were repaired on the territory of the region.
"We not only repaired roads, more than 86 thousand meters of curbstone were replaced, 85 traffic lights were restored, street lighting was installed for more than 7.5 km, more than 12 thousand meters of pedestrian fencing was installed. And this is not a complete list of what we did in the framework of the project "Safe and Quality roads", - Ivan Belozertsev specified.
"With the help of the federal budget, from which 625 million rubles were allocated (as much as we allocated from the regional budget), we were able to bring the indicator of compliance with the regulatory requirements for the transport-operational condition of the roads to 51.8%. Next year we will strengthen this work. We plan to reach a figure of 59.5% and reduce the number of places where traffic accidents are concentrated in the metropolitan area from 76% to 48%, " - he commented.
