The condition of local roads is even worse than that of state highways, and in addition to that, investments to make state-owned gravel roads dust-free will also drop to zero in the next few years.

A large part of the 4.4 billion euro road repair debt accumulated over the years is precisely the debt of investments in local roads, which is why these roads are in a much worse condition than national highways. Among the local roads, there are still many gravel roads, and they are particularly prone to road deterioration in the spring.

Infrastructure builders, the Transport Board and other road owners deal with the deterioration of state highways and local roads every day. Road sections have been mapped on national highways, where initially speed limits will be established and traffic signs warning of potholes will be erected, but there has already been talk of the possibility of lowering road condition requirements as the situation escalates.
