Construction will commence in 2019 for a new bypass stretch around Krasnodar in Russia. The project is for the western bypass for Krasnodar (South), which will link the route from Krasnodar to Temryuk with the M-4 Don Federal highway. The new road stretch provides a key link for the new highway and bridge route across the Kerch Strait to connect with the Crimean Peninsula. The bypass section is designed to carry up to 30,000 vehicles/day.
Meanwhile the authorities in Siberia’s Krasnoyarsk Region are planning to build a new bridge that will span the Yenisei River. The US$158.7 million project will see the construction of the fifth bridge spanning the Yenisei River. Called the Vysokogorsky Bridge, this will be the most northerly of the bridges spanning the river in and around Krasnoyarsk.
