There is a remote road thread somewhere

Anyways, it would be always helpful to put a message saying "this is remote road x"

The southern section will link the ring road to the port and is by itself a very useful motorway. It should be completed in 2010.

The completion of the whole project will probaly be delayed due to the crisis. Two companies have recently won the tender to build small parts of the central section

It is quite expensive, but much needed. The center of St Petersburg is full of traffic which would gladly use this motorway. Also, when the draw bridges are raised at night - this effectively cuts off Vasilievsky island, the largest island, from the rest of the city. The WHSD would be functional 24 hours/day and would be really useful for the island residents

Thanks for sharing your experience regarding Russian roads, as you must surely understand I do intend to travel by road to Russia, and it is just a question of time till I take this project ahead.

I also don't understand why the only photos that I ever got in my e-mail from Russian roads were the ones to Lena, the only thing that provokes is fear of travelling, with afraid to get in conditions like that.

Many friends of mine (that received the same photos consider me mad for having this project Finland to Moscow by the M10.

I will try to pass some photos of the other Russian roads, in a way to change that (wrong) perception.

I had to find this thread in order to discover that the road to Lena, in those conditions is close to traffic, but somehow there people that insist to use it and end like that.

Some parts of the M10 cant be so well maintained, from what you have told me, there is a new road planned (We have the same problem, here in some roads in Portugal) others parts of the M10 can be better, but travelling to Russia by road must be unique, since (from the photos that I have seen) It seems to have lovely places to visit, many of them still untouched by human presence.

Please keep sharing your value experiences in Russia roads, in a friendly climate.

We all live in this small planet called Earth, that it could be fantastic to everyone if we understand better each other.

Greetings to everyone,
Carlos

Hello everyone!

Here some photographs of the road М29 Caucasus that I have made in august 2009.

Quote:
The Russian route M29, also known as the Caucasus Highway, is a trunk road that extends from Krasnodar to Chechnya and Dagestan, terminating at Russia's border with Azerbaijan. Its length is 1118 km.
Major towns along the road include Kropotkin, Nevinnomyssk, Mineralnye Vody, Pyatigorsk, Nalchik, Beslan, Grozny, Gudermes, Khasavyurt, Makhachkala, and Derbent. After crossing the Greater Caucasus, the route continues to Baku.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M29_highway_(Russia)





I have passed on it about 600 kilometres from the city of Kropotkin and before turn on the city of Vladikavkaz (from one blue point to another).

So, here we go:

Except about 40 kilometre 1Х2 road, after the city of Armavir:



The road from Kropotkina to Pyatigorsk (300 km) has two strips in both sides:































On a background, the mount "Elbrus", the highest mount in Europe (5642 metres)

Here one more photo:


After the Pyatigorsk 2х2 road comes to an end and begins 1х1 with small pieces of 2х2:



















And unfortunately only the pair of outcomes which I could find in Google Earth:





That is all.

Very nice report!

Southern Russia looks like the American midwest... steppes and a whole lot of nothing.

Reflective paint. You'll see that in Portugal too.

The Midwest is the breadbasket of the nation and the region that hosts one of the top three cities in the nation, as well as the largest airport in the nations so I wouldn't call it a whole lot of nothing.
