I've just checked Niznyj Novgorod. Looks like it desperately needs a bypass or a new bridge even more likely. Just a single 1x2 bridge over the river.

Thanks for all the information. When is the construction scheduled to be finished? Surely looks like a massive project. I wonder, what's the approximate cost?

There are actually three road bridges over the Oka and just one (!) accross the Volga, but for sure this is not enough. Especially considering that a really busy road M7 (Moscow - Vladimir - Nizhny - Kazan ...) goes through the city center right now

It will soon receive several new bridges as well as a bypass/ring road in the future.
The plans for bridges and road network are below:

Green - existing sections of ring road
Dashed green - ring road project
Grey - future mororway network within the city
Other - major city roads
Other dashed - major city road projects

Planned for somewhere around 2012. In the Russian section I saw some unbelievable figures 35 and 18 billion rubles respectively

One of the most important road projects in Russia is the reconstruction of the M4 highway (Moscow - Voronezh - Rostov - Krasnodar - Black Sea). It is planned to upgrade the whole road to motorway status before the Sochi olympic games in 2014

This sounds like mission impossible to me; 1,500 km of motorway?

Quite many projects otherwise, I had no idea, but I'm pessimistic with the crisis...

Could be possible. I mean, look how many kilometers of Autoroute France opened in early 1970's. The entire A4 was opened in just 2 or 3 years.

It could be possible, but looking at the current length of all motorways... If nothing else, the crisis will thwart the plans IMO.

I haven't driven down the M4 because I usually take the train to the Black Sea, but eyewitnesses say that there is a lot of reconstruction work on the way. However, many parts of the road are still 1x1
