^M5

Authorities in Chelyabinsk region expect to receive $58.4m from the federal budget on reconstruction of a part of M5 Urals federal highway in 2010, regional officials report.

Under plans, $51.5m is to be spent to restore an 8.8-kilometer road near Timiryazevsky village in Chebarkulsky district. Reconstruction is scheduled to be completed in 2011.

Another $1.95m is reportedly to be used to repair a bridge over the Sim river.

U can also search "Kirov's roads" or copy "Дороги в городе Кирове".
So goverment of Kirov oblast earned about 2 billion rubles from road taxes and put more then halve of that money in their own pockets ?

Will it be 2x4 lanes all the way? I can see why 2x4 lanes would make sense near Moskva and Sankt Peterburg, but in between?

Anyhow, I hope the Russians can make it happen, they've been talking about such a motorway for quite a while now.

I guess not, since in the image upon is mentioned "number of lanes: 4, 6, 8, 10".

I don't speak Russian, so I'm curious does the diagram above show how the road is supposed to look like initially or is it the future intended layout.

On the same website I found this diagram:


It appears that initially the road is only going to be 2x2 and later will be expended as needed, with space reserved for future lane additions. Again, I don't speak Russian so I don't understand what is written in the descriptions.

It is supposed to be 2x2 from 334 to 543 km only, the rest is wider when completed. The scheme you posted is just a first milestone with 2x2 for the whole distance

By "first milestone" you mean the first phase of the project? When does the widening happen i.e when certain traffic volume is reached, or some other factor impacts when work moves past the "first milestone"???

Yes, "phase" sounds better AFAIK, widening doesn't depend on traffic volume, just a desire to get it working as fast as possible and doing extension work in the same time.

If anyone is interested, then there is a Russian version of Google street view. Only Moscow's and Petersburg's main roads/streets are covered, maybe later they will add other cities aswell. It's very easy to use, controls are the same as in Google version, just click on any place of the blue line to view the picture. Here's a preview of MKAD:

And Petersburg's KAD:

Enjoy!

I've been watching some Yandex Streetview myself, I was surprised by the number of road signs only in Cyrillic. I thought most signs on major highways were in English as well.

It is strange that foreigners are so afraid of Cyrillic letters.
