The work of the Bashkortostan delegation at Transport Week in Moscow has ended. The Head of the Republic, Radiy Khabirov, spoke about the finale of two days of a busy business program.
Radiy Khabirov said that several issues regarding road infrastructure development were discussed at the forum. The head of Bashkiria and the head of the Federal Road Agency, Roman Novikov, agreed that in 2024, a major repair and expansion of the section of the P-240 highway from Sterlitamak to Zirgan will begin. Radiy Khabirov noted that residents of the southern regions of the republic are looking forward to the updated road.
In addition, representatives of Bashkiria also discussed the further operation of the section of the M-12 highway, which will pass through the territory of the republic, Bashinform News Agency reported.
“We now need to resolve the issue of gas stations, roadside services, and road maintenance. At the same time, we discussed the condition of our roads involved in construction. Materials are transported along them, and residents should not suffer,” Radiy Khabirov wrote in his Telegram channel.
A conversation took place with the head of Rostransnadzor, Viktor Basargin, about expanding the tasks of the branch in the region. According to Radiy Khabirov, this is a significant supervisory body in the transport field, which helps resolve weight control issues and the fight against illegal transport carriers and transportation.
The topic of modernizing tram tracks in Ufa was also discussed. The issue was discussed during negotiations with the Movista Group Company. The parties approved a roadmap for further cooperation in this direction.
“We plan to conclude a concession agreement, put the tracks in order, and purchase new trams. We start from the southern part of Ufa,” noted Radiy Khabirov.
“The trip was eventful, as always happens at such events. The road sector of the republic is actively developing. We are implementing many significant, large infrastructure projects and are thinking about new ones. I thank the country’s government and federal structures for supporting our ideas and plans,” concluded Radiy Khabirov.
