Reform of the system of public administration of public (general-purpose) roads

Reform of the system of public administration of roads is being made by the separation of powers of the central and local authorities in the management of general-purpose roadways, in particular, it is planned to deliver the management of general-purpose roads of local importance to the local ones.

What we have done so far:
  • Law of Ukraine of 20.12.2011 № 4203-VI amended the Law of Ukraine "On Motor Roads" in the classification of public roads;
  • Directive of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine of 18.04.2012 № 301 approved the new list of public roads of national importance (principal);
  • Council of Ministers of Crimea, regional and Sevastopol city’s state administration approved the lists of public roads of local importance (secondary);
  • Joint decree of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Ministry of Finance approved the methodology for determining the amount of financing of construction, reconstruction, repair and maintenance of public roads;
  • Draft Law of Ukraine "On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine on the reform of the system of public administration of public roads" was developed and approved on 8/10/2013 by Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine in the first reading.
Transfer of public roads of local importance to the local level will contribute to:
  • the effective management of roads of local importance by operational and effective decisions of local executive authorities;
  • the increase of their responsibility for these roads;
  • the interest of local executive authorities and self-administration to involve additional sources of financing the development and maintenance of roads of local importance;
  • the improvement of the operating state of roadways, including the provision of bus services to rural areas;
  • the improvement of social and economic indicators associated with higher levels of comfort and safety.
In addition, the most important directions of reform in the road sector are:
  • establishment of the State Road Fund;
  • introduction of tolls for heavy trucks for the damage they cause to public roads;
  • improving the system of monitoring of the condition of public roads and the quality of road works;
  • implementation of standard forms of contracts of International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC) in the construction sphere.
