Petushenko: In the days before the New Year, record traffic was recorded on the new M-12 highway – Rossiyskaya Gazeta

Date: April 20, 2024 Time: 08:09:07

He also noted that during the days leading up to the New Year there was a peak load on the highway.

This year it is planned to continue work on the section of the highway to Yekaterinburg, completely open traffic on the Tver bypass on the M-11 Neva highway and develop the main M-4 Don highway leading to the south.

Vyacheslav Petrovich, last year they opened traffic on the M-12. How popular is the route?

Vyacheslav Petushenko: On the eve of the New Year holidays, record traffic was recorded since Russian President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin started traffic along the entire length of the M-12 Vostok from Moscow to Kazan.

On December 30, 2023, motorists made more than 91 thousand trips along the entire new route. In general, during the New Year holidays alone, motorists drove on the M-12 almost 740 thousand times.

The path is alive and already has a multiplying effect. The growth in demand for travel to Vladimir, Murom, Arzamas and Kazan fueled the development of various business areas and the creation of jobs, including in the field of tourism and road services.

Until 2023, more than 4.9 thousand jobs have been created on the St. Petersburg – Kazan route within the framework of the development of the MFZ. By 2030, this figure will increase more than 1.8 times to 9.2 thousand jobs.

Already in the design stage of the route, its impact on the regional economy was discussed. Were the forecasts confirmed?

Vyacheslav Petushenko: The cumulative effect of the increase in tourist flow amounts to 114 billion rubles. and between 5,000 and 7,000 new jobs. Increasing traffic capacity on the territory of the Central and Volga Federal District by opening traffic on the M-12 from Moscow to Kazan, increasing the speed of road transport and improving the safety and quality of road travel involves an increase in tourist flow.

Logistics companies are organizing their centers, focusing on opening traffic on the M-12. Construction companies in the regions are ready to build modern residential complexes. The regions through which the highway passes have great potential for urban development.

The track was built ahead of schedule. How did you achieve this result?

Viacheslav Petushenko: Traffic on the M-12 Vostok was opened seven months ahead of schedule. The federal highway was being built at a record pace. This was possible thanks to the support of the country’s leadership, the professional and coordinated work of the builders and everyone who participated in the project: network companies, entities through whose territory the M-12 passes.

The latter provided assistance in clearing the territory for construction. Network companies participated in the reorganization of communications. More than a thousand networks were rebuilt.

Thanks to the stable financing of the project, in a short time more than 800 km of roads of first technical category were built, more than 300 artificial structures were built, including 88 bridges and 21 animal crossings.

Road workers worked around the clock, which made it possible to open traffic from Moscow to Kazan at the end of 2023. Motorists have the opportunity to drive without traffic lights and at junctions at the same level as other roads from Moscow to Kazan . Travel time to Vladimir, Murom and Arzamas has been reduced, and tourists are exploring new routes.

It was also decided to extend the route to Yekaterinburg. In September 2022, the President of the Russian Federation agreed on the “Russia” international transport route for the development of road infrastructure from St. Petersburg to Vladivostok. What effect will the implementation of this project have?

Vyacheslav Petushenko: The calculations were made within the framework of project preparation. It is estimated that the average annual increase in track surface thanks to the creation of this highway will be 58 billion rubles. The total contribution of the project implementation to the GDP of the Russian Federation is estimated at 1,618 billion rubles.

The total increase in budget revenues derived from the implementation of the Project is estimated at 297 billion rubles.

A significant increase in the speed limit on the route will ensure high rates of reduction in travel time on the routes: Kazan – Yekaterinburg, St. Petersburg – Yekaterinburg.

The cumulative effect is expressed in the unification in the shortest distance of the three largest agglomerations: Kazan, Ufa, Yekaterinburg, with development potential in the direction of the south of Russia, which will allow connecting the Samara agglomeration to the high-speed network. speed that is being created in the Urals and the Volga region.

It is planned that the annual cargo flow will be up to 5 million tons, in total from Moscow to Yekaterinburg about 23 million tons per year. Total passenger traffic in 2030 will be about 3.1 million people.

What new sections built by Avtodor will be included in the project this year?

Vyacheslav Petushenko: The Volga section of the M-7 from Kazan to Yekaterinburg became part of the M-12. This decision was made by the Government of the Russian Federation. Reconstruction works and new construction are being carried out within the framework of the President’s instructions to extend the M-12 highway to Yekaterinburg. The reconstruction is being carried out by the Federal Highway Agency. The state-owned company is carrying out a construction project on the Dyurtyuli-Achit section, with a length of 275 km. It passes through the territory of the Republic of Bashkortostan (140 km), the Perm Territory (92 km) and the Sverdlovsk region (43 km). Traffic on this section should be open by the end of this year. Now the main emphasis is on the construction of artificial structures.

Last summer, at SPIEF, you announced the opening of traffic around Tver on the M-11 Neva. Have you already decided on a date?

Vyacheslav Petushenko: At the end of last year, traffic was opened at the first exit complex of the ring road, 33.8 km from the village of Mednoye to the Bezhetskoye highway. We plan to fully open traffic on July 17. The opening of this site will boost the development of the Tver region.

For motorists, the opening of traffic along the 62.4 km Tver bypass means the possibility of traveling from St. Petersburg to Kazan and, at the end of the year, to Yekaterinburg without traffic lights and intersections at the same level. This will significantly save travel time. It will reduce emissions and improve the environmental situation in regions where transit traffic flows will leave populated areas.

By the way, how many cars in total have circulated on the M-11 since its launch?

Viacheslav Petushenko: The Head of State started traffic on the highway at the end of November 2019. From December 2019 to January 2024, more than 83 million vehicle movements were recorded along various routes along the M-11.

Are you planning to continue developing the M-11?

Vyacheslav Petushenko: We have a project already prepared for the construction of the Pulkovo crossing at km 594 of the M-11 Neva highway. Its construction will allow connecting the M-11 with the air port of the northern capital. Relieve congestion at other airport entrances.

In the first quarter of this year, we expect the publication by Glavgosexpertiza of the Russian Federation of the project for the construction of an interchange at km 594 of the M-11, at the intersection with regional highway 41A-004 “Pavlovo – Mga – Shapki – Lyuban – Oredezh – Luga.” It will allow the traffic flow to be redistributed in the direction of Luga and Pskov.

Provide additional transport accessibility, a shorter route through the exit to M-10 “Russia” and then along highway 49-K05 “Zuevo – Novaya Ladoga” to cities such as Kirishi, Volkhov, Lodeynoye Pole, Petrozavodsk and Murmansk. Mileage will be reduced, even to cities like Lyuban and Zuevo.

In addition to the M-11 and M-12, Russia’s route includes the Central Ring Road. Motorists asked to remove traffic lights at the crossing at the same level as the railway on the section of the road in Malye Vyazemy. Is it being worked on?

Vyacheslav Petushenko: Construction work on the Malye Vyaze bypass is actively underway on the instructions of the Head of State. We plan to open traffic this year. The total length of the ring road is just over 4 kilometers and the section will have four lanes, two in each direction. Builders will build three transport interchanges: at the intersection with Petrovskoye highway, Yamskaya street and next to the Golitsyn poultry farm. In addition, we are working on the design of links at the intersection of the Central Ring Road with the Dmitrovskoye, Fryanovskoye and Shchelkovskoye highways.

In recent years, there has been active development of the M-4 Don as the main highway to the south. What has been done, what is planned?

Vyacheslav Petushenko: Over the past 14 years, almost all sections of the M-4 Don highway from Moscow to Krasnodar have been improved, reconstructed or built bypasses to populated areas. Since 2010, traffic has been opened on 9 settlement ring roads.

Last year, traffic was opened along a new section in the Rostov region, the Aksai ring road, and in Krasnodar, along the western edge of Krasnodar ring road. The travel time to the Black Sea coast has been significantly reduced, which has made it possible to remove transit traffic from populated areas, and the environmental situation in cities has improved.

This year we plan to complete the works on the section between km 777 and km 933, but there is still work to do. In 2024, road workers will begin executing the Adler Bypass project on the Black Sea coast. It will eliminate city traffic and reduce travel time. For now, all traffic passes through the city, along Lenin Street (Adler’s central road).

The state company is involved in the restoration of roads in new regions. How many roads have already been repaired?

Vyacheslav Petushenko: This year road workers will restore more than 640 kilometers of roads in new regions of Russia. And in 2022-2024 alone, more than two thousand kilometers of roads will be renewed. Most of them have not been repaired since Soviet times. Road workers not only carry out major road repairs, but also, on their own initiative, restore memorial sites along the routes dedicated to the soldiers of the Great Patriotic War.

In February this year, the opening ceremony of traffic on a new link of the M-3 “Ukraine” in the Kaluga region was held. What are your plans for further development of this highway?

Vyacheslav Petushenko: From Maloyaroslavets to Kaluga, motorists already travel without traffic jams. Access to the “Rosva” industrial estate in Kaluga has been facilitated. This year we began the reconstruction of 65 to 124 kilometers of the M-3. Upon completion of the work from Moscow to Kaluga, via Obninsk, Balabanovo and Naro-Fominsk, fast and safe travel along the M-3 “Ukraine” highway will be ensured.

On the M-1 “Belarus” highway, the section in the near Moscow region has been expanded to 6 lanes and converted into a high-speed lane. Won’t you stop there?

Vyacheslav Petushenko: On the M-1 “Belarus” connects Moscow with Minsk. In recent years, a section of the M-1 highway has been rebuilt from km 45 to km 66 in the Odintsovo district. An interchange was built 59 km away, which gives access to Parque Patriota. Taking into account the traffic intensity, it is planned to reconstruct 21.9 kilometers of the highway from 66 to 86 km to the A-108 “Great Moscow Ring” with the construction of transport interchanges at 83 km and 86 km within the Moscow borders. region.
