AFAIK, this is no toll road, if you asking that.

Does this complete the upgrade of M7 to dual carriageway from Kushnarenkovo to Ufa?

No. My question is if there are traffic lights or roundabouts and if slow traffic is allowed to use the road, e.g. bicycles or tractors.

The same question about this M-7 section. Is it allowed for slow traffic?

В ходе реализации проекта также были построены три транспортные развязки.
Google translates it with "three roundabouts" or (opionally) "three interchanges". I guess the right translation should be interchanges (see OSM), shouldn't it?

this is a motorway. There are no one-level crossings, only interchanges.
According to russian law, slow vehicles (such as tractors, bicycles, ect.) are forbidden on this kind of roads. The minimum speed on this road is 40 kph.

Yeah, транспортные развязки means interchanges (intersections or roundabouts very rarely called in this way, they both have other words for it).

Formally yes, but I don't know how do you drive a bicycle with such speed if it's not steep slope.

Here is literally what is written in the law:
Quote:
16.1. На автомагистралях запрещается:

- движение пешеходов, домашних животных, велосипедов, мопедов, тракторов и самоходных машин, иных транспортных средств, скорость которых по технической характеристике или их состоянию менее 40 км/ч;
- движение грузовых автомобилей с разрешенной максимальной массой более 3,5 т далее второй полосы;
- остановка вне специальных площадок для стоянки, обозначенных знаком 6.4 или 7.11;
- разворот и въезд в технологические разрывы разделительной полосы;
- движение задним ходом;
- учебная езда.
Translation:
16.1. On motorways, the following is prohibited:
*
- The movement of pedestrians, pets, bicycles, mopeds, tractors, self-propelled vehicles, and other vehicles whose speed on the technical characteristics or their state is less than 40 km / h;
- The movement of trucks with a permissible maximum mass exceeding 3.5 tonnes on any lane except first and second;
- Stopping outside of special parking areas marked with signs 6.4 or 7.11;
- U-turning and entering the technological gaps of the dividing barrier;
- Reversing;
- Training driving.

and bicycle is defines as a vehicle which is moved by muscular force or electric motor with power not more than 250 watt which turns off when speed exceeds 25 km/h. Formally this doesn't restrict bike velocity on road but this is very hard to move so fast, though

Thanks, so slow vehicles (such as tractors, bicycles, ect.) are NOT permitted on motorways according to russian law (like in (almost?) all other countries).

I am looking to a motorway construction plan (with map) in Russia for next 10-15 years. In English if possible.

A121 'Sortavala'

Is there any update about the construction of the Sortavala Motorway? Russian Wikipedia says it should open to Sosnovo in 2018, but 2014 Google Earth imagery shows a pretty advanced project, that looks like it could be completed this year or 2015.

So am I! I saw one in Russian once, which is also absolutely OK to me.
