FAI “ROSDORNII” took part in a conference on a regional road network development. The event was convened by the Russian Association of Territorial Road Management Authorities “RADOR”.

Vladimir Martinson, FAI “ROSDORNII” Deputy General Director, told participants about the work the Institute carried out in the field of standardization in 2022–2023.

In particular, these activities include the development and analysis of regulatory, technical, and methodological documents, the publication of the Bluebook on changes in new documents on standardization, the development and updating of main registers of regulatory and technical documents in the field of road infrastructure, as well as consulting industry stakeholders on the application of necessary documents.

Standards, Developed by FAI “ROSDORNNII in 2022 - 2023

The Institute takes an active role in the work of technical committees on standardization: TC 418 (“Road Industry”), TC 400 (“Construction Work. Standard Technological and Organizational Processes”), TC 278 (“Road Safety”), TC 57 (“Intelligent transport systems”).

Also, Vladimir Martinson spoke about the updating the Register of New and Best Technologies, Materials and Technological Solutions of Secondary Use”, which was developed by ROSDORNII. The passport of the National Project “Safe-Quality Roads” defines an indicator of the Federal Project “System-Wide Measures for Road Industry Development” - the share of roads where new and best technologies from the Register were applied in 2019 was 44.43%, in 2020 – 55.85%, in 2021 – 62.53%, in 2022 – 55.60%.

The expert said that during 2022-2023 ROSDORNII is working on the introduction and development of accelerated testing methods for road pavements.

“The strategic objective of accelerated testing is to find the most cost-effective and durable road pavements and materials over a reduced period of time compared to actual service life,” the speaker explained. – For example, the Heavy Vehicle Simulator “CYCLOS”, developed on request of the Institute within the framework of the National Project “Safe-Quality Roads”, allows you to test road pavements in an accelerated way. The unit imitates 70 thousand heavy vehicle wheel passages per day on the surface of the tested road pavement with a maximum load of up to 13 tons.”

In conclusion, Vladimir Martinson reported on including road inspection data to the Federal State Information System for Monitoring Formation and Use of Road Funds for 2022-2023. The total length of regional intermunicipal roads that were inspected and included in the System today is 24.4 thousand km.

Another participant from FAI “ROSDORNII”, Anna Platunova, Director of the Pricing Department, also spoke about the transition to the resource index method (RIM) for determining the estimated-costs in the road industry - the main process taking place today in the pricing system. The speaker noted that the transition does not yet apply to infrastructure that has industry specific features, such as highways.

The main RIM features are the absence of federal one-of-a-kind prices, as well as the publication of actual estimated prices for both material resources and labor costs in the Federal State Information System for Pricing in Construction. At the same time, the resource-index method retains the same elements of the pricing system as the base-index method.

To ensure the possibility of transitioning to RIM, a new Federal Estimate and Regulatory Framework FSNB-2022, approved by the Ministry of Construction of the Russian Federation, came into force in February 2023. During the current year, new provisions to the FSNB were prepared, which affected more than 1000 estimated-cost standards.

“Significant work has been done to include new and update existing data on resources, including machines and mechanisms, in the Register of Federal Basic Prices. According to the Russian Ministry of Construction, the 9th package of additions to the FSNB-2022 will be approved by the end of 2023. Significant additions have also been made to the composition of the Classifier of Construction Resources, which ensures its synchronization with the new federal base,” said Anna Platunova.

Despite the fact that the Ministry of Construction is a regulator of the system of pricing and estimated-costs standardization, other federal executive bodies, constituent entities of the Russian Federation, state and industry companies also take active participation in updating the federal base. They are assigned not only the rights, for example, to develop estimated-costs, but also responsibilities: regular provision of data on the current cost of construction resources, calculation, and approval of industry wages in constituent entities of the Russian Federation.

“In order to generate a complete set of information for calculating industry indexes for homogeneous groups of resources for the road industry, it is necessary to collect and analyze more than 35 thousand commercial proposals,” added Anna Platunova.

In conclusion, the speaker emphasized that in order to ensure the transition to RIM, it is necessary to issue indexes for groups of homogeneous construction resources that have industry specifics. At the same time, the application of the base-index method (BIM) will be possible in the future if the design task is issued before the transition to RIM, and adjustments to the estimate documentation are carried out as part of the design or using BIM. Today, the established deadline for the transition of all newly launched facilities to RIM is the first quarter of 2024, including road sections.
