The Agency knows
Giving an interview to a leading Russian newspaper, the head of Rosavtodor announced the real reasons influencing wear of Russian roads.
According to the head of the Agency responsible for managing Federal automobile highways, roads wear out due to high traffic on them, and also because of the excess weight in two times or more than the stipulated standards. Therefore, according to the head of Rosavtodor, if you do not shift asphalt annually, it will collapse literally under the wheels of vehicles.
Despite the fact that in the spring of this year the President demanded a revision of the standards applied in construction and repair of roads, the condition of most Russian roads remains poor.
