Central Ring Road Project Wins Formula of Movement National Award

The Central Ring Road (CRR) became a winner of the National Award for Achievements in Transportation and Transport Infrastructure "Formula of Movement-2021" in the nomination "The Best Infrastructure Project".

The award ceremony was held as part of the forum-exhibition Transport Week-2021 with participation of the Deputy Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation Kirill Bogdanov.

The traffic along the entire 336 kilometers of the Central Ring Road was launched by the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin on July 8, 2021.

Now, more than 18,000 cars pass along this road every day. The highest traffic intensity is at the section of the Central Ring Road-4 from M-7 Volga to M-4 Don highways. More than half of the CRR users are residents of the Moscow metropolitan area. Like the motorists from other regions, they save travel time by choosing this route.

55 bridges, 144 overpasses, 7 wildlife crossings and 19 pedestrian crossings were erected on the Central Ring Road. One of the most ambitious structures on this route is the bridge over the Moscow Canal to the Central Ring Road-3. It also crosses Dmitrovskoe highway and Savelovskoe direction of the Moscow railway, and a regional road. The length of the bridge is 1,410 meters, the total weight of the metal structures is 9,500 tons.

The heart of the highway is the Central Control Facility. It collects data about weather conditions, traffic situation, and traffic on the Central Ring Road, which allows to make prompt decisions and send emergency commissioners to help motorists.

The CRR project was implemented by concluding two long-term investment agreements (LTIA) (SUF 1 and SUF 5) with up to 15% debt financing and two concession agreements with a concession payment (SUF 3 and SUF 4) with attracting up to 50% debt financing.
The largest funding organizations took part in financing of the Central Ring Road: PJSC Sberbank, Gazprombank JSC, Eurasian Development Bank (EDB), VEB.RF, and RDIF.
