The Finnish Transport Agency (Finnish: Liikennevirasto, Swedish: Trafikverket) is responsible for the maintenance of Finland's transport system. The Agency took over from the Finnish Rail Administration (RHK, Finnish: Ratahallintokeskus, Swedish: Banförvaltningscentralen) and parts of the work of the former Finnish Maritime Administration (Finnish: Merenkulkulaitos, Swedish: Sjöfartsverket) and the Finnish Road Administration (Finnish: Tiehallinto, Swedish: Vägförvaltningen) on 1 January 2010.
The Finnish road network comprises highways, municipal street networks and private roads. Together with the regional ELY Centres, the Finnish Transport Agency is responsible for the maintenance and development of the state-owned road network. There are 78,000 kilometres of highways maintained by the state in Finland.
