|Despite the rapid expansion of the network of motorways in Azerbaijan, the
organization of operation and maintenance of motorways is still not fully modernized.
Currently, more than sixty regional units across the country are responsible for the
maintenance of the entire road network. These units carry out their duties equally on main,
regional and local roads. The modern way of operation of motorways requires a different
approach with the specific procedures and regulation of relations for this type of network.
Based on existing organization and capacity, as well as institutional
changes/strengthening of the Agency for State Roads, it was found that operators from the
public sector can provide maintenance of motorways in a certain period. Such a proposal
must be accompanied by organizational changes in terms of reduction of existing units
through the establishment of specialized regional units for maintenance of motorways that
will be responsible for longer sections/sectors of about 200-300 km. This paper presents
an analysis of the necessary capacity to maintain the motorway network in Azerbaijan,
and estimate of the total costs for setting up new units for maintenance of motorways.
