Сравнение стоимости строительства автомобильных дорог в россии и в странах мира
Slow development and operating conditions of roads in Russia along with rapid motorization of the population and businesses (from 25.4 million vehicles in 2000 to 48.4 million vehicles in 2013) against a background of signifi cant government spending on road construction, gives a reason for erroneous conclusions as to the cost of road construction. As a result, the myth of the extremely high cost of road- building in Russia in comparison with foreign countries has become highly widespread. However, these calculations are not perfectly correct. Moreover, in the absence of uniform methodology for calculation of the unit cost of road construction, any attempt to compare the costs of foreign and national projects practically makes no sense. The paper analyzes the costs of road-building and re-construction and compares the obtained results with similar foreign values.
