$945m eyed for Moscow – St. Pete highway’s toll section

Quote:
memo of intent has been inked regarding international investment in the toll 15th-58th km section of the prospective high-speed Moscow – St. Petersburg highway, Russia’s Vnesheconombank (VEB) announces.

The memo calls for an up to $330m VEB loan to North-West Concession Company carrying out the construction project.

In parallel, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the European Investment Bank (EIB) are reportedly considering lending to the concessionaire an aggregate of $615m in a ruble equivalent.

Construction of the high-speed Moscow – St. Petersburg highway is expected to start next year and will reportedly last 36 months. According to VEB, the 43.1km toll section is to be commissioned in 2014. The total cost of the project is a reported $2bn, of which the RF government is expected to allocate $765m, with the rest raised by the concessionaire.

I'd have a question. Given that the M58 Amur Highway is gonna be paved next year, is there a plan to pave the M53 Baikal Highway between Krasnoyarsk and Irkutsk (part of the Trans-Siberian Highway)? I can't believe it still isn't paved after so many decades. If they can pave the Amur Highway, they should pave this one too, cause it looks like crap:

There is no traffic, it seems remote and probably would be enough to flatten it with a bulldozer more often

Come on, the Amur Highway is even more remote, and don't forget it's part of the Trans-Siberian Highway. So there's really no plan to finally pave it?

I don't even know which road it is. There are plenty of remote access dirt roads like this. They just need to be flattened more often.

The Amur highway is an important transport artery and strategic road connecting the Far East, the road above could be some local road to reach a remote village or something. Would be nice to pave it, but who will provide the cash?

Well, I was surprised too, but it's really the M53 federal Baikal Highway, which is part of the Trans-Siberian Highway between Moscow and Vladivostok. Here's a Wikipedia article, with a photo of an unpaved part of it (Krasnoyarsk - Irkutsk).

Fair enough, for some reason I missed out that it was the M53

I know there are some bad sections betwen Krasnoyarsk and Irkutsk. At the end of the day, it all comes down to money (or lack of it)

Isn't the major point that noone really uses the Trans Siberian Highway, or am I talking rubbish?

Some sections of M53 are unpaved. And some paved sections are worse than unpaved.

One Estonian took this road one or two month ago. He told that worst part of road is east from Kansk to Tulun but it continues partly as a dirt road until you arrive to Irkutsk Oblast. You can find some pictures and short video from his blog http://jaanuspiirsalu.blogspot.com/2...osa.html#links
Locals told that the road is quite good on summer and winter but during autumn and springs rains they have to close it for trucks for even one or two weeks until the road could get dry again. He passed it before heavy rains could start.
