The meeting of the design committee of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs took place today, on October 25, 2018. Three out of four projects under consideration were presented by the Chairman of the Board of the State Company Avtodor Sergei Kelbakh as part of presentation organized by the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation. These are: Far western bypass of Krasnodar on M-4 Don Highway construction project, M-1 Belarus Federal Highway reconstruction project (33rd km to 84th km section), and road construction and modernization of roads in the Europe – Western China transport route.
The far western bypass of Krasnodar – a 51 kilometer section of the road category 1B – will allow the traffic to bypass the city of Krasnodar and other nearby settlements in order to move in the direction of Crimea Bridge. The investment agreement will be executed as a corporate private-public partnership. The project will cost 37 billion rubles, and 32% thereof will be financed outside the scope of the state budget. The construction is scheduled for 2019-2021 years.
The 33rd km to 84th km section of the М-1 Belarus Highway – between Moscow and Mozhaisk – is also scheduled for 2019-2021. The 30-year long-term investment agreement provided for a 30% private financing of the reconstruction project. The total cost of the project is 47.6 billion rubles. The highway will have from four to eight lanes.
The Europe – Western China transport route will combine M-11 Moscow – Saint Petersburg Highway and the Central Ring Road under construction (with exit to Kazan) and the parts of this transit route in Kazakhstan and China to create a single transport corridor. As a result, the new highway network of Russia will be included in the list of important international logistical routes.
