At the first launch complex of the 0th stage of the M-12 Highway in the Moscow Region, the work is underway to mount the leave-in-place form and prepare for installing the superstructure main beams on the supports of the bridge across the Klyazma River.
Journalists could see how exactly the construction of this engineering structure is carried out in the framework of the first motor rally "M-12. We Make Cities Closer" of the Avtodor State Company.
The superstructure will be lowered onto the supporting parts with the help of hydraulic jacks. The bridge workers will remove the rolling devices, which have been used in the launching. Once the main beams are in place, the concreting of the roadway slab will begin. And asphalt laying is envisaged in spring. At the end of this year, traffic is planned to be launched on this six-lane (three in each direction) bridge.
At the first launch complex of the 0th stage of the new highway, construction of a junction with the Central Ring Road (CRR) is also underway. It consists of three engineering structures at different levels. They form a "double pipe" - two levels of exits and entrances with transitional speed lanes - both on the Central Ring Road and on the M-12 Highway. This will avoid reducing the speed of the main traffic both along the M-12 Highway and the Central Ring Road, and ensure a safe exit from the interchanges. The work on constructing this engineering structure will also be completed this year.
The length of the first launch complex of the 0th stage is 22 kilometers. It will run from the Central Ring Road to the intersection with the A-108 near Orekhovo-Zuyevo.
The M-12 Highway is being constructed as part of the national project "Comprehensive Plan for Modernization and Expansion of the Main Infrastructure for the Period up to 2024." The 811 km highway will connect the Russian capital with Kazan and join five regions together: the Moscow, Vladimir, Nizhny Novgorod Regions, the Chuvash Republic, and the Republic of Tatarstan. By choosing this highway, motorists will cut travel time in half.
