Still about history.
Who knows anything about "Motorways" in USRR built during WW2? Roads Moscow-Minsk and Moscow-Kaluga, which were made before 1941, were 2x1, 12-15 m width, 10 cm thick layer of cement. I heard that they were called "Avtomagistrala" on Soviet military maps and "Autobahn" on the German military maps.
Were there grade-separated junctions, like in the Italians motorways at this time?

The only road in Russia that placed in semidesert landscape, where you won't meet no single tree. It's Astrakhan - Elista road, 300 km long.






Small town near the road.



Gas station.

It's not an EU border, but it's not the Korean DMZ either.
And E28 in Russia is one of the two sections of Reichautobahn still surviving with the original pavement, the other being E36/DK18 in south-western Poland.
These agreement has been suspended by Polish government about two months ago, as well as with Ukraine.
Please, correct me if I'm wrong

Is there any news about the CKAD - the Moscow outer beltway? There was supposedly a construction start in August 2014 for a 50 km segment from M4 to A101. I browsed through Google Earth but could not find any construction works...

It appears that the Murmansk Bypass was inaugurated today. It's the first higher-class (motorway-like) road in this region, and perhaps could be considered the northernmost motorway / expressway in the world.

I remember polish trolls trolling economy thread back in 2014 when ruble went 30% down, like it was the end of the world. Eventually zloty went 30% as well, not poles trying to find excuses, like nothing happened.

Add dozens of billions of USD spend on Soczi Olympics, Mundial 2018 and on war in Syria as well.

Poles and Russians are always arguing only because they love each other but won't admit it, like two brothers

What is happening with M11 from Solnečnogorsk to and around Tver? I didn't see any construction this spring.

Just about the CKAD again.

1. How long will it be? EDIT 339km
2 will it be a full ring? Northern section? EDIT, Allegedly yes

3. Is this the section under construction/tendered or a new tender?

http://www.russianhighways.ru/en/for...-section-4.php

4. Is it still to be tendered in 5 sections and how many of these tenders have been announced so far?

Apparently the cost of that bridge will consume 70% of the budget for all the roads and bridges in Russia in 2016.

That's an example of journalist interpretation of facts. 70% of the federal budget for roads and bridges construction in 2016.

That does not include federal roads and bridges support and repairs, and of course does not include any regional roads and bridges - which is constructed and supported with regional money obviously.

Let me just say that Moscow (as a city) spends 2.5 times more on subway construction and 2 times more on roads construction in 2016 than federals spend on this bridge (yes, the road budget of Moscow is larger than the federal). And Moscow is just one (albeit the richest) of the 95 (or 93 if you prefer for some reason not to count Crimea and Sevastopol) regions of the largest by area country on the planet.

True, but Moscow represents almost a quarter of the entire GDP of the Russian Federation. So it makes sense that its share of infrastructure spending is also much greater than the average of all federal subjects.

I also wouldn't call the bridge to Crimea a 'bridge to nowhere'. Crimea has a population of 2.2 million and a bridge connection has been planned for much of the last 100 years.

Plus it makes a lot of sense from the military point of view now that Russia is claiming that territory. It's the bridge what will make it de facto part of the Federation.
