A through-traffic will be provided at bypass of Losevo village and Pavlovsk city on M-4 Don Highway by the end of June 2020

Builders began to lay road topping after dismantling the gas pipeline at the last hundred meters of the bypass of Losevo village and Pavlovsk city on M-4 Don Highway. The road workers are going to provide a through-traffic with a length of 85 km on the bypass by the end of June 2020.

In the middle of summer, drivers who move via M-4 to the Black Sea will be able to drive through Voronezh Region without traffic jams. The bypass is far from settlements through Bobrov, Pavlovsk and Verkhny Mamon districts of Voronezh Region.

The road has 1B technical category and four lanes with separated counter-flows and interchanges at different levels. Two toll collection points (TCPs) have already been built on the section. The first one is located on the 636th km of the road, it has 16 toll lanes, six of which can operate in reverse mode. The second point is located on the 672nd km of the road, at the entrance to Pavlovsk city. There will be four toll lanes on this TCP, two in each direction.

Also, an automated traffic control system (ATCS) will be launched on the bypass, which will help drivers to avoid possible road troubles.

Traffic density is very high on Don Highway in summer, and the road passing through Losevo and Pavlovsk fails to cope with it. Its traffic capacity is also reduced by semi-trailer trucks parking on the sidelines next to cafes and hotels.
