Roads of Russia: One Disaster Becomes Less


On Sunday morning, January 26, at the entrance to the city of Perm, from the M-7 Volga highway, the KAVZ regular bus driver drove into the oncoming lane and crashed into a Hyundai truck. In turn, the truck rammed a passenger OPEL. As a result of the accident, 15 people were injured, including a child.


In the Voronezh region, the Priora overtook at a speed of more than 130 km / h and crashed into the oncoming Gazelle. The four dead.

Full six year program


Messages of this kind constantly flash on news feeds daily. Accidents on roads occur so often that the media has already begun to filter out most of the information.

Roads have always been Russia's weakness. It is customary to call them one of the main problems of the country. The authorities are aware of this. In December 2018, the government launched the national project “Safe and High-Quality Roads”. It should be implemented before 2024. Almost five trillion rubles (4779,7 billion) were allocated for the project. The main burden was assigned to regional budgets (4139,1 billion). The federal budget took over 440,9 billion rubles. The rest is off-budget sources (companies serving paid sites, including them).

A small year has passed, how is the situation today? On December 25, at a meeting of the Presidential Council for Strategic Development and National Projects, then Deputy Prime Minister Maxim Akimov reported that “5 km of regional roads and more than 5 thousand km of road network in urban agglomerations have already been repaired. This is almost 3 times more than in 2018. "

Departmental reports in full will only be in time by the end of the quarter, however, the results of the road workers' work are already visible to the naked eye today. First of all, it is necessary to note the completion of the construction of the Moscow-St. Petersburg M11 Neva highway.

Roads that please


At the end of November, the grand opening of this route took place in the northern capital with the participation of the President of the country. Vladimir Putin rode the Neva in an Aurus limo and said: “In our stories countries, in the history of road construction nothing like this has yet been of such a level, this class. ”

The M11 highway was built for nine years. She received the name "Neva", while passing through several regions, enriching them with new transport logistics capabilities. The authorities, business and ordinary people have new perspectives.

This happens with the commissioning of any highway or even its segment. The road brings life with it. Therefore, people are happy to complete the construction, and not only in two capitals. On Monday, the Kavkaz Federal Road Administration completed a major overhaul of the R-217 highway section on the border of North Ossetia and Ingushetia. The roadway here has been expanded to four lanes and equipped in accordance with the new traffic safety standards.

A week earlier, road workers reported on bringing to normative state two large sections (167 kilometers) on the A-331 Vilyui and P-504 Kolyma routes. A section of the M-7 Volga highway between the villages of Zaimishche and Zalesny was repaired near Kazan. For the first time in Tatarstan, noise protection screens were installed near the villages. In addition, a barrier fence and drainage facilities were mounted on the road, and a number of other important works were carried out.

As you can see, even in the winter months, repair, reconstruction and construction of roads do not stop. Ultimately, hundreds of kilometers of new or normative routes are added up to this.



But the problems still remain.

In the passport of the national project “Safe and high-quality roads” it is noted: 43,1% of roads of regional significance do not meet regulatory requirements. In urban agglomerations, this percentage is slightly lower - 42. On federal highways, another problem. A tenth of them work in overload mode.

Kilometers "out of notes"


Federal highways occupy only a small part of the road network of Russia (56 thousand km against 1,5 million km.). However, they are the heart of all road traffic. Therefore, it is so important today to equip them and bring them into a normative state.

This is a costly affair. For example, the construction of a kilometer of the already mentioned Neva highway cost almost a billion rubles per kilometer of road (550 billion of invested money for 669 kilometers of track — “kilometers of banknotes”).

A similar story is on another popular highway - the M-4 Don. Here, the cost of reconstruction on paid sites reaches 750 million rubles per kilometer. There are M-4 and more budget areas. In October, Avtodor announced a tender for the reconstruction of a 2,7-kilometer stretch of road in the Kuban. There for everything about everything - 850 million rubles.

Evil languages ​​say that in all these numbers there is a percentage of the corruption component. On this occasion, you can be indignant and indignant, but let the prosecutor's office and other law enforcement officers deal with embezzlers.

We will note for ourselves: despite all the obstacles and difficulties, Russia's roads are being built and reconstructed. By 2024, more than half (50,9%) of regional routes and 85% of city routes should be brought to regulatory requirements. Let us hope that one major disaster in Russia will indeed become less.

    This is an atypical article. Soon, at such a pace, an article will be published on bridges built under Putin, and there is generally a zeal for patriots.

    22 of Russia's 32 longest bridges were built after 2000, that is, after Vladimir Putin decided to steal everything with his friends (s)

    We survived .. Bridges with roads began to be built. Where is this country heading?

        There are three misfortunes in Russia - fools, roads, and when one misfortune builds another ..
        Our roads - a garden for the eyes:
        Trees, with turf shaft, ditches;
        Works many, many glories,
        Yes, it is a pity, sometimes there is no passage.
        From the trees, standing on the clock,
        Pass a little profit;
        The road, you say, is good -
        And remember the verse: for passing!

          This is from the same opera as “General Frost”. It seemed to us that it was easier off-road than the Germans to retreat off-road and transfer troops on the offensive. And forty degrees of frost worked only on one side of the front.

    The road brings life with it.

    Only if it is a new road, i.e. previously there was no other. Now with the commissioning of new roads - and they are high-speed, i.e. by definition, they bypass settlements, all settlements that lived off roadside trade on the old road are doomed to extinction. An example is the Yaroslavl highway, a new section through the Vladimir region. On the road, not a single settlement, and villages on the parallel "Staro-Yaroslavl highway" began to die out rapidly.

      When the track passes through the village, even more are dying in it, including under the wheels of cars.

      Bypassing the major highways of settlements is a civilized world practice. And the main "extinction" of the village with us is still not from the fact that the highways are not laid along their central streets.

        the main "extinction" of the village

        Actually, I was not talking about an abstract village, but about villages that live by the roadside trade. Look at the free sections of the Moscow-Peter road. How many abandoned stores are there? But these points gave people work.
        And a little distracted from the village, but returning to the Novo Yaroslavl highway in the Vladimir region.
        The constructed, asphalt road was cut off and laid anew, because the wrong sand was put into the base, on the sand cushion. And they found out at the last moment.
        And why did they build this bridge to nowhere? Now it stands, quietly collapsing. How did all this affect the cost of the road and what did the designers think about?

                This is not a road. These are traces, the remains of the road. I repeat once again - I was not there on the satellite, I personally walked there, and personally saw what was happening there (growing). Unlike designers. I foresaw such a conversation, even photographed everything myself, but after reinstalling the computer I can not find anything - i.e. no photo (no need to quote Svetlakov: I didn’t post it, so it wasn’t). There is a road from Aleksandrov-Dvoriki road to the village of Korela, but it is already gone from the village: further, across the bridge to the village of Tiribrovo. And the satellite is also gone, everything is overgrown. In the photo that I presented (with a large increase) it is clearly visible.

        Quite right, in developed countries, highways bypass the city, or go above the city, from the highway, there are exits and acceleration lanes. Better not to say road, transport system, which includes a set of solutions - at least 2 lanes in each direction, for safety, rainfall, drainage, markings, noise fences, lighting, intersections with railway crossings at different levels, etc. The four-lane highway should pass through the whole country and connect all cities. In Russia, the road system is, alas, outdated. (Backward) Well, at least the government was able to solve this problem.

        -----------------------------
        The article is generally correct, roads are being repaired. By the way, I live near the federal highway, but there is a pedestrian crossing equipped with a traffic light on it. True, after it you have to go into the "pocket" for heavy trucks. Now the city highway is being repaired in winter, stormwater is put on and the road surface is completely changed, by spring, most likely, the site in front of my house and the street in general will be repaired. In 2016-2018, roads in yards were repaired, as the population is now heavily motorized. So the situation with roads has reached a new level. I will say more, all the alleys in the park were asphalted and locked in a ring. If as a ring for athletes-skiers for summer training on skis, this is good. For park culture, the concept was certainly not well thought out, because the benches now stand on paved bases, although they were originally on the grass, part of the trees were cut down for the work of special equipment. Well, the city authorities completely redid the park to some current standard. Well, in summary, the condition of the roads is important both for the country and for business, one retail is probably driving thousands of tons of goods in trucks, leaving the railway services.

      On the M-10 highway, everything is exactly the exact opposite: people even leave suburban villages through which the highway passes. Round-the-clock noise, dust, exhaust, wagons by a train. You can’t cross the road without danger to life, and keep your child at least on a chain.

      this one going to the oncoming lane

      It is necessary that the oncoming line is delimited and so that there are two lanes in each direction, then there will be no need for overtaking along the oncoming line and head-on collisions will almost disappear. If you make intersections by railway crossings at different levels, then there will be no collisions with trains.

      They intensively master the federal network, which then will certainly become paid. You will go to the south, refuel, you cough up for the journey on the road, and it turns out that there is no rest left. Meanwhile, regional roads will turn into directions that seemed to have bombed yesterday.
      “5 thousand km of regional roads and more than 5 thousand km of road network in urban agglomerations were repaired. This is almost 3 times more than in 2018 ”

      I don’t understand where the joy of these shameful numbers comes from. request That is, it will take 1,5 years to repair all 150 million km of roads. Considering that the asphalt disappears after 2 years, it turns out that this will never happen. Let's get over soon ... Bolivia.

        One hope, maybe on the gliders, whenever we move! No roads, just directions! For us, the very thing.
        But toll roads, robbery alone. We do not earn so much.

              There is nothing to be done, as one respected Author of VO said, popularity has its side effects. From "fans" there is no peace anywhere. wink
              Here is an interesting publication from LiveJournal about how the road industry "rotts" in the "hated West", where the "banner" and "overpowered" material assets by thieving "patriots" carry laughing

                Road construction has always been a manger, for many. It’s just now that it has become a SUPER FEEDER. They do not hide their wealth, as before. This is their time. The main thing in time will share with those with whom it is “supposed”!
                In the West, basically the same thing ... except that everyone is trying to camouflage in full. it so happened with them that sticking out their "dubious successes" is not decent and under the article, all the same, they can fail.

    Yes, they began to make local roads, not just highways.
    BUT right there they started running around and ... you, the asphalt is smooth, but the road is narrow and there is no dividing .... recourse

    I always remember the quality of domestic roads when you drive from Poland to the Kaliningrad Region - the Poles have not bad roads, but in direct comparison, they will be worse ...

    "... two troubles, and one repairs the other." “So the other trouble has resolved, too?”
    If the entire population is concentrated in two cities, then there will be no ills at all? And what to do with the rest of the territories - quit, sell? - An alternative ...

    Evil languages ​​say that in all these numbers there is a percentage of the corruption component.
    Not only evil, but just normal languages! smile Moreover, “responsible workers” require a rollback not after the work is completed, but before - just in case, because they can be removed from office before they are finished! And from insiders infa that sometimes the rollback reaches 40% (usually with a partial restoration of the canvas)!

    I am very glad that a good track was built between Moscow and St. Petersburg. It remains to remember about the regions, especially east of the Urals. For example, in their native Primorsky Territory, patching of roads is enough for 2-3 months, the federal highway M60 at the exit from Vladivostok is in terrible condition, the markings have been erased or are missing almost throughout the city. I am generally silent about the condition of roads in Vladivostok, pits everywhere, open hatches, wells deeply drowned and dug out from under the asphalt, which the contractor did not bother to pick up, asphalt sagging, destroyed curbs, reinforcement sticks out on the overpasses. In the summer, puddles and mud will add to all this due to idle rainfall.
    At the same time, for many years we have been listening to fairy tales from the regional and city administrations about the record amount invested in the repair and construction of roads. And then there are endless criminal cases and arrests of the ever-changing leaders of Road Construction.

      What a wild impudence and lies! The whole country envies Primorye. The central authorities stripped all regions to build bridges to the Russian island and through the Golden Horn. The bridge to the Russian island is generally one of the longest in the world. Roads are expanded, new ones are laid. This is due to other regions. Khabarovsk Territory compared with Primorye as a poor relative. am
      Specifically, you snickered there!

      However, is it not the duty of local authorities to lay asphalt in their cities. From your mayor, ask yourself where the roads are, where the money is. Why complain, but nod to Moscow. Sami then what? We wait until the GDP arrives pit sleeps?

        The answer will be this: in Moscow, because whoever controls Rome controls everything. Almost all cities do not have (sufficient) income. "Raw superpower" ...

    For some reason, they mainly show us the roads in and around Moscow. Russia, as you know, consists of Moscow and the rest of Russia. And there, in the rest, 99% of the population lives. And uses completely different roads.
