It is Wales. It is the longest European name for a town/city. Be happy he didn't take the original name of Bangkok:

But what's the difference then between that screwed up road on the pics and 'zimnik'?

Right, now that's an idea! But I don't think entering such a long name is possible. :P There are always limits to sth; for example, you're way exaggerating, whereas my location is perfectly fine.

Zimnik is a road which can be used only in winter period, when ground is frozen. Actually zimnik is just a cart road running for hundreds km:



Here we have a normal banking with all stuff completed - like bridges, sag pipes, drainage and so on. There is no paving so far, that's true.

As I said, that situation was an accident: unprecedent rain washed away the banking for several km. Usually this road is passable even for heavy trucks.

Few questions about former Reichsautobahn Elbing - Königsburg, russian part:
  1. When is it going to be finished?
  2. Will it be 1x2 or 2x2?
  3. Will it have grade separated interchanges or not?
  4. Do You have any pictures of it?

TTK? It's signed as M1 as seen on the signage above the road.

I think M1 is destination, it's signed as TTK (3-e КОЛЬЦО).

Yes, Tretye Transportnoe Kol'tso (or sth like that, this is mixed with Slovenian ), Third Transport Ring. I'm sure you know it, it's shorter than MKAD and not yet completely finished, I think. Also, as we can see on the photo, I doubt you'd have to turn right from M1 for MKAD and the center of Moscow. A road such as M1 can only lead directly into the city-center and to MKAD.

I know the road, i have checked it once on Google Earth. Maybe the signage only gives directions to the M1, and apparantly, this is not the M1 yet.

This is bridge over Moskva (Moscow) River on TTK and interchange between TTK and Komsomolskiy Prospekt / Vernadskogo Prospekt southwest of the city-center, somewhere between M1 and M3.

WOW! Now this is what I call a GOOD highway in Russia, even though looks a bit packed!
Thanks for posting! I like it a lot!
