My Russian is not really good but I think he says "completed interchange of southern motorroad bypass (road M5 Moscow - Samara - Ufa - Chelyabinsk) and auto-road Ufa - Airport."

"Закончили" would transliterate as "Zakonchili" which sounds similar to the Polish word "zakończony" which means completed.

год (god) means "year".
No it's not good, it's perfect

The western part of bypass (between of M7 "Koloksha" intersection and Vladimir-Murom intersection) has length of 18 km. However, 15 km of them is a narrow road, having 2*1 lanes with wide shoulders. Heavy road accidents happen often on this part of bypass.

The last photos are made on the 3rd Transport Ring of Moscow. On two of them you san see the tonnel of Lefortovo, located in the eastern part of ring (between of Enthusiasts Highway and Schelkovo Highway intersections).

No, it is not. It's an entrans to underground passage on internal side of the 3rd Transport Ring. This entrance is located near the Spartakovskaya Square (Спартаковская площадь), where Schelkovo Highway intersection is located. Vehicles move here in southern direction, toward the Enthusiasts Highway intersection (in clockwise direction).

On photo you can see a road pointing side, where distances to nearest intersections are given. The first of them is the Enthusiasts Highway intersection (located behind of this passage, distance is 1.8 km). The next intersection is on the Nizhegorodskaya Street (Нижегородская Улица), and farthest one of them is located on the Volgograd Avenue (Волгоградский Проспект); the distance is 4,8 km.
The Enthusiasts Highway goes east, while the Volgograd Avenue goes south-east.

That famous tunnel, known as the Tunnel of Lefortovo, located nearby, on the external side of the 3rd Transport Ring. Vehicles move in the opposite (counterclockwise) direction through this tunnel. Tunnel is longer than passage shown on this photo.

Exit from tonnel is located not far from entrance to this passage.

The Lefortovo Tunnel problems were apparently caused by leaking water from the Yauza River that froze on the pavement, and caused these accidents.

In the western part of Moscow there is another unique tunnel, known as North-Western Tunnel (or Serebryany Bor Tunnel). It has two levels. Upper level for road (exit from Red Presnya Avenue (Краснопресненский Проспект) to the New Riga Highway (Новорижское шоссе)). Lower level is used for subway (Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya line, Арбатско-Покровская линия).

The M9 extension into Moscow. There is also a pretty cool bridge over the Reka (River) Moskva just after the tunnel.

Many companies are illegaly cutting parts of the forest (not in the area where the motgorway will be build).

This is an exit from North-Western tonnel toward the centre of Moscow. That bridge on photo is known as the Picturesque bridge (Живописный мост).

Note: These photos were taken 3 weeks ago.

A212/E77 Estonia - Pskov

Map:


1. This is how the A212 looks in direction to Estonia. Complete silence.


2. View to Pskov, yep, nobody.


3. The surface is really bad, actually this was the worst piece of road on my way to Vladimir oblast.


4. Bilingual signage.


5. After 15 km from the border still no intense traffic, even locals don't drive here, I saw few Latvian and Estonian plates only.


6. Some signs of life.


7. Soviet time sign.


8. First crossing with the road to Pechory, at day time you can cross the RUS/EST border there, but only light vehicles.


9. Forbidden to park you car on the side.


10. Estonian trucker.

More to come...

11. Railway corss.


12. Pskov introducion. Such introductions have all cities in Russia.


13. Pskov city limits.


14. Pskov is a large city with more than 200,000 inhabitants.


15. Ladas, we call them Zhiguli.


16. The lack of markings, very wide problem on Russian roads.


17. Bridge over Velikaja (trans. mighty) river.


18. Neste!


19. We go to Petersburg.


20. Kiev is signed because Pskov is on the St. Petersburg-Kiev magistral.


21. Red.


22. This bypass wasn't here 4 years ago.


23.


24.


25. Local crossing.


26. Very good road.


27. Sound barriers.


28. Lucky trip.


That's it for today. Tomorrow I'm going to upload photos of Pskov-St.Petersburg highway.

Amazing pictures! Good to see a road-report from Russia

I've read somewhere (Russian wikipedia) that there are toll roads in the Pskov oblast. Did you see any?

В Российской федерации работа над созданием платных дорог началась в 1998 году.
На сегодня есть один участок платной дороге на федеральной трассе М-4 "Дон" (в Липецкой области, на обходе населённого пункта Хлевное) и несколько участков на региональных автодорогах. В частности, в Псковской области имеется 4 платных участка: Остров — Вышгородок (62 км), Печоры — Старый Изборск (23 км), Опочка — Дубровка (82 км) и Усвяты — Невель (58 км). Цены варьируются от 1 до 17 рублей за километр, они зависят также от грузоподъёмности транспорта. Самая дорогая отечественная дорога — трасса «Остров — Вышгородок» (0,47 евро за км для трейлеров).
Apparently, there are 4 toll roads in the Pskov area;

* Ostrov - Vyshgorodok (62 km)
* Pechory - Staryj Izbosk (23 km)
* Opochka - Dubrovka (82km )
* Usvyaty - Nevel' (58 km)

Just remembered, Pechory - Staryj Izbosk is a toll road there was a sign. But A212 is toll-free and M20 untill Leningrad oblast too.
