Message of greeting to present and retired road workers of Russia

October 15, 2017

The President congratulated present and retired road workers of Russia on their professional holiday.

The President’s message reads, in part:

“Roads are an important and inalienable part of the country’s united transport system, and trouble-free transportation between cities and regions, quality of life, sustainable development and competitiveness of the national economy all largely depend on them.

Road network improvement and modernisation are among our strategic priorities. It is encouraging that road construction and maintenance organisations have enlarged their fleet with advanced specialised equipment and mechanics, which allow for considerably faster repairs of existing and the construction of new motorways.

Designers are busy creating reliable logistical schemes, interchanges and structures, convenient for both pedestrians and the flow of traffic. New high-speed motorways are being commissioned, which meet increased safety standards and have an extended lifespan, while projects tasked with building international transport corridors are currently underway.”
