Improvement of Design Regulatory Framework in Road Construction Discussed in the Russian Federation Council 11.10.2019

On 10 October 2019, a round table was held in the Federation Council. The table was arranged by the Committee on Economic Policy to discuss measures for improving Design Regulatory Framework in Road Construction.

Aleksei Zhurbin, General Director of Institute Stroyproekt, spoke about current standardization problems in the road sector and made several suggestions.

In particular, Aleksei Zhurbin proposed to suspend introduction of new standards until the existing regulations are made consistent. The Ministry of Transport shall become the Regulator of transport construction legal framework. All new standards should be first approved by the Ministry of Transport and the industry community. The existing standards require updating on a regular basis.

Alexander Kusik, Director of Stroyproekt Moscow branch, spoke about a joint initiative of three companies. Stroyproekt, Mostotrest, and Bridges and Tunnels Engineering Center suggested creating a shared database with information on special land use zones.
