Hanwa Expressway, Japan

30 August 2015

A 25 kilometer extension of the Hanwa Expressway opened to traffic south of Osaka. It is a super two expressway and runs from Nanki-Shirahama to Susami-south. Japanese Wikipedia considers it a part of the Kisei Expressway, even though it does not connect to that expressway and exit numbering follows the Hanwa Expressway.

A 23km long part of Sortavala road to Sosnovo has been opened in Leningrad oblast.

Под Петербургом 11 сентября открыт четвертый, 23-километровый участок новой «Сортавалы». Он начинается между разветвлением на Приозерское и Новоприозерское шоссе и идет до поворота на Сосново. Осталось дождаться 2019 года, когда дорогу продлят до Лосево. Общая стоимость обоих участков – 27,9 млрд рублей.

Днем 11 сентября в присутствии министра транспорта Максима Соколова открыли движение по четвертому участку автодороги «Сортавала», соединяющей Петербург и Петрозаводск. Отрезок расположен между 36-м и 58-м километрами дороги – от расхождения трассы на новое и старое Приозерское шоссе и до дороги «Ушково – Гравийное», проще говоря – до поворота на Сосново.

По словам представителей Росавтодора, дублер Приозерского шоссе в этом месте позволит в выходные дни жителям Петербурга добираться до поселка Сосново, где расположены жилые кварталы и горнолыжные курорты (в том числе «Игора»), примерно за час. Почти 23-километровый участок с 2013 года строила компания ЗАО «ВАД» (как и первые три участка «Сортавалы») по контракту стоимостью 15,9 млрд рублей.

Новый четырехполосный участок (по две полосы в каждую сторону) проходит вдали от населенных пунктов, его расчетная пропускная способность – 8 тысяч автомобилей в сутки в обоих направлениях. На участке были построены две эстакады, три путепровода и три транспортные развязки. По характеру асфатобетонного покрытия (крупной фракции) можно узнать стиль «ВАД», – аналогичный с виду асфальт лежит на Невском проспекте Петербурга, который кроме как «ВАД» ремонтировать никому не дают (замена асфальта происходит примерно раз в пять лет, в последний раз производилась в 2013 году). Судить о прочности проезжей части можно по тому, что первый участок «Сортавалы» был открыт в 2011 году и с тех пор его еще не ремонтировали – он находится в хорошем состоянии.

Открывшийся отрезок между 36-39,6 км частично проходит по ранее существующему Приозерскому шоссе и вдоль него. На 40-м километре дорога уходит с Приозерского шоссе в лесной массив. На 53-м километре трасса пересевает региональную дорогу «Подъезд к деревне Новожилово», на 57-м возведена клеверная развязка с автодорогой «Ушково – Гравийное».

Дорога шириной 27,5 м с расчетной скоростью до 120 км/час имеет обочины шириной 3,75 м и пятиметровую разделительную полосу. Наружное освещение есть на развязках, на разворотной петле и площадке отдыха. Стоят также барьерные ограждения, железобетонные ограждения парапетного типа и АСУДД.

Пятый участок между поворотом на Сосново (а в противоположную сторону – в Первомайское) до поселка Лосево (с 57,5 по 81-й км) компания «ВАД» строит в настоящее время по контракту стоимостью 12 млрд рублей. Его должны открыть в 2019 году. Еще несколько отрезков «Сортавалы» сейчас строятся в Карелии.

В конце 2011 года был построен за 1,6 млрд участок с 8-го по 36-й км (от КАД до Агалатово с развязкой в Скотном), второй отрезок длиной 10 километров между Агалатово и Керро стоимостью 2 млрд появился летом 2012 года. Третий – от Керро до разветвления на Новоприозерское и Приозерское шоссе – летом 2013 года.

Новая «Сортавала» имеет длину 153 километра. В перспективе дорога должна соединиться с ключевыми европейскими трассами через Финляндию и создать основу сети региональных дорог. Новая дорога строится как по участкам старого Приозерского шоссе (их реконструировали), так и по лесным землям. При появлении новых участков трассы, идущих параллельно Приозерскому шоссе, они получают статус «Сортавалы», а соответствующий участок Приозерки его утрачивает.

a 9km portion of the Highway 69 twinning south of Sudbury, Ontario, Canada opened today. While there is still another 90km to go until full completion, the highway will eventually be resigned as Highway 400, bringing the 400 series highway network to Sudbury.

G4218 Yaye Expressway, China

9 September 2015

A 409 kilometer segment of the G4218 Ya'an - Yecheng Expressway opened to traffic in Tibet according to various sources. It runs from Nyingchi to Lhasa. It runs through valleys along G318. That road crosses a 5000 m high pass, but the expressway - if it runs there - will likely be tunneled at an altitude of circa 4700 m, which makes it the second highest motorway in the world. There is no recent Google Earth imagery to confirm this segment, but other parts near Lhasa and Nyingchi are visible.

S8 E67, Poland

Modernisation works have finished on the ~5 km section of Warsaw ringroad (S8 motorway). The modernisation included widening the Grota-Roweckiego bridge over Vistula to 10 lanes. All lanes are now avaialable and the road gained "S" status. This also means that the whole north-western part of Warsaw ringroad is completed.
