Russian Roads Are in the List of the Worst in the World

According to the quality of roads, Russia holds the 136th place in the world out of 144, as it is said in the Global Competitiveness Report 2012-2013. The quality of Russian roads is scored 2,3 points out of 7.

      The best roads are in France, the United Arab Emirates and Singapore - 6,5 points each. Portugal, Oman, Switzerland, Austria, Finland, Germany and Hong Kong are also in the top ten.

      According to international experts, the worst roads are in Moldavia - 1,5 points. The bottom of the list also includes a number of European countries such as Poland (2,6), Bulgaria (2,5), Rumania (1,9). Among the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) countries, Kyrgyzstan (2,5) and Ukraine (2,3) also have the worst roads.

      However, such small CIS countries as Kazakhstan (117th place with 2,7 points), Tajikistan (98th place with 3,2 points) and Azerbaijan (67th place with 4,0 points) showed even better results than Russia.

      Earlier it was reported by Russian media that it is expected to spend 620-720 billion rubles for reconstruction and building of Russian roads in 2015. The Russian Prosecutor General's Office estimated the quality of Russian roads and came to the conclusion that the most part of the roads doesn't meet demanded standards.
