Particular attention should be paid to organizing exits from these highways and developing adjacent highways, creating tourist attractions and forming hiking trails, including in specially protected natural areas. Also among the priorities in this area is the development of collective accommodation facilities.

The government's report on this instruction should be ready by December 1 of this year.
