Not really traffic light. That's road guard (DPS [Road Patrol Service] post). Lights are used only in emergency case to block road. If you switch to map you see that the junction is fully grade separated.

Ok, then it's an expressway without traffic lights, but with pedestrian crossings.

Onega Freeway?

http://www.codewit.com/europe/9720-r...-onega-freeway

I found this on the web. It states that construction recently began on a 4-lane toll road from the Finnish border at Parikkala to Petrozavodsk. It is supposedly 426 kilometers long (even though the route is circa 300 km via current roads).

My relatives recently bought a piece of land at Vouksa river for house construction (70k euro, not cheap), it is a bit far away from the St.Petersburg, but a-121 motorway is under construction now and some stretches are upgraded to motorway standards and it will take less than an hour to get to the city when completed in 2015.

Completed stretches:

Until which place the new motorway from Moscow to Sankt-Petersburg is U/C? I know there's something going on around Khimki and a bit further, but that's all I've seen or heard of, and there are barely any updates in the Russian forum.

I'd like to know why they sometimes make extremely short (practically inexistent) braking- and acceleration lanes despite having hard shoulders. I also find it interesting that there are so many interchanges on Russian motorways. Big countries usually have seldom interchanges.

Trucks prohibited on E30 during the day? Is that a joke?

Why should it a joke?

Not all at the moment, unfortunately.

How can you ban trucks from such an important road 18 hours a day? And I see trucks driving there anyway.

Trucks are banned from Moscow, not from road.

What are you talking about? The sign is on the E30, not inside MKAD. How do you get from MKAD to Ryazan by truck during the day then?

- What is the actual travel time between Moscow and St Petersburg by road? And by train?

- When the motorway is finished how much time will cost?
