In their turn, the visitors from Belarus thanked their Russian colleagues for hospitality and stressed that they were impressed with the progress of transport infrastructure development in St. Petersburg.

The Western High Speed Diameter in St. Petersburg (WHSD) is a strategic investment project in St. Petersburg intended to give a strong impulse to its development as a megacity and one of the major European transport centers. WHSD is the first Russian express toll road built inside a city. This modern multi-lane highway will connect the southwest of St. Petersburg, including the Sea Port area, with the Ring Road, Vasilievsky Island, Kurortny District and the Scandinavia motorway. The WHSD project is the biggest PPP project in the field of road construction in Russia. Non-standard engineering structures forming the WHSD road have a recognizable architectural appearance.
Western High Speed Diameter (WHSD)
WHSD is the first urban toll expressway in St. Petersburg, 46.6 km in length, which comprises a great number of complex engineering structures. The road links the southern and western city districts with the Ring Road, Vasilievsky Island in the center and the Scandinavia highway in the north, and has improved accessibility of the main transport hubs — Pulkovo Airport, the port of St. Petersburg and the Marine Façade passenger terminal. The new expressway has reduced travel times in some city areas by 50-70%.
WHSD features the second and the third longest bridge structures in Russia — Southern mainline flyover with the bridges over the Sea Channel and Korabelny Fairway, 9378 m long, and Northern mainline flyover with the bridges over Petrovsky Fairway and Elagin Fairway, 8794 m long.
