Speaking about the prospects for the implementation of breakthrough solutions aimed at the development of transport infrastructure to ensure the barrier-free movement of passengers and goods, Marat Khusnullin said: “We have a huge program for the development of housing construction. It will fully affect all plans for the construction of roads – support networks, city bypasses – and bringing roads within agglomerations to a standard state. Particular attention should be paid here to population mobility ”. According to him, the Transport Strategy takes into account the link with other development programs. “When developing territories and building new housing, first of all, it was necessary to take into account where people would live, work and how they would move between these points,” said the Deputy Prime Minister and added: “The key task is not to write a Transport Strategy for the sake of transport, but to link it with the development of the country, with the development of the regions ”.

In his speech, Marat Khusnullin noted the importance of developing digital control and modeling systems, the introduction of which will significantly increase labor productivity, ensure the quality and accuracy of design, and make it possible to make more correct calculations of estimates and capital investments. He recalled that government customers should switch to BIM technologies from January 1, 2022. “If we increase labor productivity, then we can solve the problem of labor resources,” he said.

At the end of his speech, Marat Khusnullin said: “Despite the coronavirus, we have exceeded our road construction plans in the most difficult year of 2020. This year we are also overfulfilling our plans. “

The Vice Prime Minister recalled that the country is actively implementing a number of mega-road projects – the Moscow-Kazan, Kazan-Yekaterinburg highways are being built, further plans for the construction of roads in the Southern Federal District and the new Meridian program are being actively discussed, and progress is being observed in the development of railways.
