More funds should be allocated from the federal budget for the construction, repair and reconstruction of local roads. The Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin instructed to work out this issue.

The Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Transport, Ministry of Agriculture and Rosavtodor should consider the possibility of increasing funding and submit a report to the Government by October 28.
In addition, the Ministry of Transport and the Ministry of Finance will have to submit proposals by October 30 to adjust the national project “Safe and High-Quality Roads” in order to include road infrastructure in small towns and settlements where 100 to 200 thousand people live.
Mikhail Mishustin gave these and other instructions for the development of territories following Forum “Days of Municipal Governance Leaders”in Veliky Novgorod.
