The construction of the motorway bypassing the village of Losevo and the city of Pavlovsk (Voronezh region) at 633 km – 715 km of M-4 "Don" federal motorway began.
A fertile land layer is being removed, excavation of the roadbed, and right-of-way clearing are carried out within the framework of the territory preparation. In addition, construction workers started pile driving on artificial structures and arranging temporary bypass roads. A completion date for the construction of the road, bypassing the village of Losevo and the city of Pavlovsk, will be December 2020.
A new section of M-4 "Don" motorway, 85.17 km long, will go through Bobrovsk, Pavlovsk and Verkhnemamonsk districts of the Voronezh region. The predicted intensity in the first five years of operation: 10,000 – 12,000 vehicles/day.
The road will correspond to 1B category, which means availability of four lanes with separated counter flows, junctions in different levels, and absence of crossings with traffic lights. The estimated traffic speed limit is 120 km/hour.
Within the framework of the project, 5 multi-level junctions, 28 bridges and crossovers, 7 recreation areas will be built. 7 bridges and crossovers will be overhauled.
In December 2016, Avtodor State Company and Transstroymekhanizatsiya, LLC, signed a long-term investment agreement for the construction, maintenance, repair, overhaul and operation on a paid basis of M-4 "Don" motorway at the section 633 km – 715 km (bypassing the village of Losevo and the city of Pavlovsk, the Voronezh region).
M-4 "Don" federal motorway (Moscow – Voronezh – Rostov-on-Don – Krasnodar – Novorossiysk) is the basic vertical axis of the road system of Russia connecting the central and northern regions of the European part of the country with the North Caucasus, the Black Sea coast, the port of Novorossiysk. The length of the motorway is over 1,500 km. M-4 "Don" was transferred in the trust management of Avtodor State Company in May 2010. After the commissioning of new high-speed sections, 918.172 km of M-4 "Don" motorway began to correspond to IB category, 101.135 km – to IA category, and 100.629 – to IC category. As a result of the large-scale reconstruction carried out by Avtodor State Company, the entire M-4 "Don" motorway will correspond to the first technical category by 2019.
At present, over 500 km of motorways are operated on M-4 "Don" on a paid basis. These are sections in the Moscow and the Tula regions (21 km – 93 km and 93 km – 211 km) bypassing the cities of Bogoroditsk (from 225 km to 260 km) and Yefremov (from 287 km to 321 km) in the Tula region (from 330 km to 414 km), the towns of Zadonsk and the village of Khlevnoe (from 414 km to 464 km) in the Lipetsk region, the city of Voronezh (from 492 km to 517 km) , bypassing the village of Novaya Usman and the village of Rogachevka (517 km – 544 km), as well as paid section 544 km – 633th km in the Voronezh region.
