The purpose of the study is to develop and test a web application for monitoring roads, integrated with the digital control system of the Kemerovo region  Kuzbass. Classic client-server architecture was used; focus groups with customers and an analysis of the regulatory framework were conducted to determine the functionality and composition of information. Prototyping, layout, testing of the application Management system for monitoring the condition of regional and municipal roads was carried out. The main page includes an analytical panel and a registry of roads with a search for a large number of parameters. An information card has been created for each road, containing general information, data on the condition of the roadway, technical documentation on the road, technical diagnostic results, road maps, and three-dimensional models. The application makes it possible to monitor and control roads at minimal cost and obtain information for making management decisions (for example, on repairs).
