It was said that the previous code, that was introduced two years ago has been wiped out. It's predicted that the new one will be out of use in a year, as the number of vehicles registered in the last years has grown to 1 million and is still growing fast.
New code 178 was introduced in St. Petersburg today:

Codes 277, 299 and so on will not be introduced because they will not be fit in regional code window. As alternate variant, Russian license plate manufacturers offer new types of plates, containing four digits in basic combination of symbols (instead of existing three digits). It makes a large number of combinations per region (over 17 millions).

Interesting pics, evian. Looks like M1 is being upgraded. Do you have information about it? Like from where to where, how many lanes etc?

Will the KAD run across that dam or not?

By the way, the flood control dam is very similar to the "Maeslantkering" near Rotterdam.

Yes, the KAD runs across the dam, most of times over it and few times under.

http://maps.yandex.ru/-/CJGD67A the same gate on a previous building state showing KAD running under it.



Another photo with dam and kad.
