On November 27, Stage 8 of the M-11 express toll highway Moscow - St. Petersburg opened to traffic. The opening ceremony was attended by the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin.
This road section from Tosno to St. Petersburg, which runs from 647 to 684 km of the highway, was the final stage of the project. The M-11 starts at the Moscow Ring Road and finishes at junction with St. Petersburg Ring Road. Most of its route goes parallel to the highway M-10. However, there are six crossings of the M-11 and the M-10 that are grade-separated interchanges. The total highway length is 669 km.
The M-11 is the first built-from-scratch highway in the nation’s post-Soviet history that links the two largest Russian cities. The construction project was split in six contracts: two concession agreements and four long-term investment agreements. Stages 7 and 8 of the project, i.e. the last sections from Novgorod to St. Petersburg, were constructed by Two Capitals Highway, a joint venture founded by the VTB bank and the French company VINCI Highways.
The new highway will contribute to further development of both freight and passenger transportation, which, in its turn, will increase the investment potential of all regions within the project attraction area.
M-11 Neva express motorway
The M-11 Neva toll expressway between Moscow and St. Petersburg is one of the largest infrastructure projects in Russia. It is a much-needed congestion reliever of the M-10 motorway. The new road bypasses all populated areas in Moscow, Tver, Novgorod and Leningrad Regions.
Construction of the expressway allowed decreasing the traffic and reducing accident rate on the M-10. Travel from Moscow to St. Petersburg takes now 6-7 hours.
Stroyproekt developed the design and detail design of several M-11 sections, as well as the design of large and non-standard bridges, overpasses and flyovers for the whole road. Our company also performed construction supervision for Stages IV and V.
