The head of the department said that this is a real task, although so far in peacetime no one in the country has carried out such projects at such times

The idea of building a Moscow-Kazan toll road not by 2027, but by 2024, the head of Avtodor Vyacheslav Petushenko, in a commentary to journalists, called it a “super task”. According to him, there were no similar precedents either in the history of Russia or in the history of the USSR (with the exception of the Great Patriotic War), the TASS agency reported.
“That is, we have to start designing in a month and by the end of the (current) year we should start preparing the territory. But, by and large, if this task is posed, it’s real, ”Petushenko added.
To reduce the construction time of the Moscow-Kazan highway, Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin previously proposed. He called the project a priority, since in the future the road will become part of the Europe-Western China highway.
Khusnullin announced plans to accelerate the construction of the Moscow-Kazan highway
The cost of building the Moscow-Kazan highway, according to RBC, is 610.2 billion rubles, the length is 729 km, of which 142 km will pass through the territory of Tatarstan. The estimated speed on the highway Moscow – Nizhny Novgorod – Kazan will be 120 km / h. The new highway should become an understudy for the Volga M7 highway, which for the most part passes through settlements.
Avtodor also spoke about another planned construction of a toll road. According to the head of the company, construction work on the construction of the northern bypass of Tver, which will eventually become part of the paid M-11 Neva, may begin next year. For this, it is necessary not only to complete the design, but also to receive 60 billion rubles from the state.
