Tasks

To implement the state policy regarding the road maintenance and development formulated by the Seimas of the Republic of Lithuania.To implement the programmes on road maintenance and development drafted by the Ministry of Transport and Communications.To organise the development, modernisation and functioning of the network of the roads of national significance.

Functions

The Lithuanian Road Administration under the Ministry of Transport and Communications is an institution established by the Government of the Republic of Lithuania; it organises and coordinates the restoration, maintenance and development of the roads of national significance.

Goals

To satisfy the needs of the society and road users. To work in an economic and efficient manner by creating proper traffic conditions, so that the transport on the roads of national significance is safe, fast, convenient and environment-friendly. To develop the roads and their network.The top priority is to ensure traffic safety.

There are 6,25 km of roads per 1,000 of population in Lithuania and 326,62 km of state roads per 1,000 sq. km of its territory. The majority of our roads (60,5 %) has an asphalt pavement.

The following projects have been implemented by the Lithuanian Road Administration under the Ministry of Transport and Communications. Below they are divided according to their source of funding:

1. Projects financed from the EU Regional Development Fund and the Road Maintenance and Development Programme.

2. Projects financed from the EU Cohesion Fund and the Road Maintenance and Development Programme.

3. Projects financed from the Road Maintenance and Development Programme (RMDP).
 

The aims by priorities of the Road Maintenance and Development Programme for 2006–2015:

1. Improvement of safe traffic conditions;

2. Road and bridge maintenance;

3. Development of the road network and infrastructure; development of frontier roads;

4. Implementation of the principles of the National Strategy for Sustainable Development.

Thus Lithuania, even compared with economically stronger states, has a fairly well-developed road network. It is important to preserve, maintain and develop it, so that it is smoothly included into the European network. One of the main stimulus to develop the road network in the country is that Lithuania is a transit country with a number of roads crossing it from West to East and from North to South.

While improving the road network there are a number of roads to be reconstructed so that they would meet the requirements of the people and transport as well as all modern technical, economic and environment requirements, were fast, convenient and safe. It remains one of major concerns for the road engineers in Lithuania for the present and near future.
