/\ This is awesome. Especially the first and the last pictures.

If Russia continues this way, I might go there for a drive some time.

I ask again: does anybody have one of those existing/planned/tendered road maps for Russia?

I know, but normally when you have such a truck stopped in the middle of the road you have lots of temporary signs telling you to slow down and be cautious. This is definitely not the case in the video.

This is indeed a nice thread, thinking about some day road-tripping Russia, just have to learn the language though except from the basic phrases I already know.. But is there a "ViaMichelin" or similar on the internet to use when getting driving directions in Russia? I haven't found anything like that..

Not on internet. Only paid navigators - Navitel, iDA, Garmin etc

Online for big cities - Google Maps, Ovi Maps, Yandex Maps etc

Saint-Petersburg ring road (KAD)



Construction started in 2001
Total length 141 km
You can see 18 junctions on the map, the one on the night photo above is 3 level one, #16.
It has 58 bridges and passways, including this huge bridge

Part of the road goes through dam, which itself is great engineering project, this part is not fully completed so far

This is one kick-ass ring road by any standards. What percentage of it is complete?

Top priority for the city nowadays "Western Rapid Diameter" (ZSD), you can see this road on the map above that goes from #17 to #2 ant further.
Estimated cost 212 bl roubles or 5.3 bln euro and completion date 2014.
It should be toll road.
Total length 48 km, most of the distance is on overpass.

Vladivostok was once called an environmental disaster zone with very high concentrations of unhealthy materials. I don't think building a couple of big bridges is gonna change that, but it does have potential considering the unique location of Vladivostok.

Are you sure you didn't mix up with some other city?

It would be nice if people showed a map of the road/bridge along with the pictures. Because most people have no idea where f.e. that bridge in Vladivostok is.
