KRASNOGORSK, Moscow region, June 29 (Itar-Tass) —— Only a quarter of roads in the Moscow region meet modern requirements, Moscow Regional Governor Sergei Shoigu said at the Friday meeting of the regional governor.

“We do not have an updated concept of the development of regional road infrastructure, which leads to traffic jams. Only a quarter of regional roads meet the norms,” he said.

Shoigu cited a statistic report, which claimed that 68% of municipal roads were up to the standard. “Do you really believe that? Let us stop deceiving ourselves,” he told regional government workers.

Meanwhile, the number of vehicles is growing in the Moscow region. “Over 3 million vehicles have been registered in the region; besides more vehicles come to the region on weekends and holidays. Our roads were built in the 1960s-1980s and remained the way they were. The number of new roads is minimal,” he said.

The Moscow region needs to repair 9,000 kilometers of roads, but only 220 kilometers are repaired per year.
