Vitebsky Prospekt interchange will connect the WHSD with the planned East-West Highway. The length of the new six lane interchange is approximately 2.6 km, its design capacity is about 70 000 vehicles per day at a speed of up to 110 km/h.
East-West Highway with a bridge over the Neva
St. Petersburg Master Plan envisages that the East-West Highway together with the Western High Speed Diameter (WHSD) and the Ring Road will form the network of urban highways. The highway is designed to ensure a new transport link between the city centre and outskirts. WHSD and the East-West Highway will create a bypass diverting transit traffic from the centre of St. Petersburg to the network of highways and throughfares.
The planned highway will include a bridge over the Neva to be built between the Alexander Nevsky Bridge and Volodarsky Bridge, which are located at 6.5 km from each other. The new bridge will relieve congestion at the approaches to these bridges and improve the traffic situation in the area.
