Investment in the Highway Infrastructure Providing New Growth Opportunities for the Russian Economy

08 Jun , 12:00–13:15
The Russian Economy: Achieving National Development Goals
Pavilion H, conference hall H23

The quality of the road infrastructure has a direct impact on the operation of a country’s economic system. Strengthening inter-regional collaboration requires roads; therefore development of the road infrastructure using modern materials is among the key development objectives of Russia. New technologies allow reduction in the costs of road construction, maintenance and repair and substantial increase of their operational life. New technologies for building cement roads and cement reinforcement of soils have the potential for a fast development of a modern and high-quality road infrastructure in Russia. What is inhibiting this process today? When will cement highways appear in Russia and what are the potential downsides of this technology? What impact could the implementation of such projects have on Russia’s regions and individual companies?
