The article is devoted to the study of topical issues of improving the mechanisms of public administration in the field of road facilities. Positive trends in the development of the industry have been identified as part of the implementation of the National Program for the Restoration of Bridges 2020-2025 and the Large Construction Project. It has been established that for the further improvement of the transport industry, it is necessary to delegate expanded management tools to local authorities, streamline, adapt the regulatory framework with EU legislation, promote the development of public-private partnerships, ensure extended independent expert and public control of the quality of road works, stimulate well-coordinated interaction between figurants in the sphere of roads, providing expert monitoring of the condition of roads. Further research can concern a comprehensive analysis of innovations in the niche of the road sector with the analysis of statistical data and dynamics of qualitative indicators of development.</em></p> <p><em><strong>Keywords:</strong> public administration, transport infrastructure, construction of bridges, road building, Ukravtodor.</em></p> M.
