Test mode operation of Rogachevka and Novaya Usman bypass in Voronezh Region launched

21/11/16  

Transstroymekhanizatsiya (TSM), a member of the Mostotrest Group and a leading road infrastructure development company, has completed construction of a new segment of the federal highway M-4 «Don» to bypass the villages of Novaya Usman and Rogachevka (Voronezh region, km 517 - km 544). The bypass is now open to traffic in test mode.

Before the implementation of the construction project, the road segment represented one of the most severe bottlenecks on the M-4 Don Highway. Passing through the villages of Novaya Usman and Rogachevka, the road had a negative effect on the settlements' environment, road safety and transit traffic speed.

Construction of the bypass began in June 2014. The segment is the continuation of the Voronezh Bypass commissioned by TSM in November 2013. The new segment was built under the long-term investment contract concluded between the State Company Avtodor and TSM. In addition to construction, the contract also envisions the segment's repair and maintenance during 20 years post-completion.

As part of the project, the Mostotrest subsidiary built a 29-kilometer segment of Category 1A illuminated four-lane highway with a 6-meter dividing strip, two split-level traffic interchanges, 14 bridges with a total length of 1,322 m, as well as two pedestrian crossings with a total length of 163 m. Design speed on the new road segment is 150 km/h.

The new high-speed highway segment will be operated on a toll basis. Toll rates and toll collection launch date will be announced by the State Company Avtodor at a later time.
