An elevated passage equipped with ramps for low-mobility citizens will be erected by the end of the year on the 492nd kilometer of M-4 Don Highway in Voronezh Region, to reduce the risk of accidents.
Now residents of nearby villages "Iskra", "Polytechnic" and other settlements that are located near the road, use the ground crosswalk. As far as there are two transition-speed lanes, they have to be extremely careful when crossing seven lanes. At the same time, the average annual traffic constitutes 40,000 vehicles per day, and may reach 80,000 in the summer period.
After commissioning of the elevated pedestrian crossing, the accumulation of vehicles on this road section will be excluded, since they will not have to stop for letting pedestrians pass. In this regard, it is possible to improve the environmental situation, in general.
