On September 3, Stage 7 of the M-11 express toll highway Moscow - St. Petersburg was opened to traffic. The opening ceremony was held at the 561st kilometer of the road.
The completed 103 km-long section was built under the concession agreement between the State Company Russian Highways and Two Capitals Highway LLC. The road passes through Leningrad and Novgorod regions, from the junction with the M-10 in the area of Myasnoy Bor to the junction with the A-120 road near Tosno.
‘Roads bring people closer,’ said Innokenty Alafinov, First Deputy Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation, at the opening ceremony, ‘Modern roads contribute to improving the life quality, and make it possible for road users to enjoy speedy and safe journey around the country’.
The construction of the seventh stage of the highway started in 2016. In three years, 39 engineering structures were erected on the four-lane highway, that is: 14 bridges and 25 overpasses altogether. Roadway lighting and safety barriers serve as safety features throughout the highway, and rest areas are provided at every 20 km for drivers’ convenience – 10 sites in total, five on each direction. A 6m-wide central reservation separates opposing traffic flows.
34 km-long Stage 8 of the road runs in Tosno District of Leningrad Region and ends within the area of St. Petersburg. It is a final stage that will complete the project.
Stroyproekt participated in the design development for construction of the M-11 stages 6, 7, and 8, and was the main designer of working drawings for stage 6, as well as of stage 1 (km 58 - km 97) and the start section (km 15 - km 58) from Moscow side.
