I can't imagine doing another 500km on top of that!

Its extremely stupid to do such long distances in one go, yet I do at least a couple of runs Izhevsk-Moscow per year, which totally wears me out and takes about 17-18 hours. The distance is only 1200 km, but the road takes so long because there are a few long sections of 1x1 with heavy traffic where you can go max 60-80 km/h

That's even worse than my run, I think - at least my journey was all on motorway (except two smallish sections). And my wife drove the first 350km too!

I've read some kind of advisory from Dutch motorist association ANWB that you can - on average - drive only 350 km per day in the Russian Federation due to the poor roads and heavy traffic.

This is probably bollocks (ANWB is not the best informed motoring club), but how many kilometers can you reasonably drive per day if you have to travel along regional roads?

I regularly drive from St.Petersburg to Helsinki, from St.Petersburg till the border it takes 3-3.5h and that is about 290km for me, the whole trip is about 7-8h including short stops and border control.

Wow, I've done 1200 km trips several times, probably going to do a 1400 km trip (then, 1400 km back) in 1 month

Well, road quality varies heavily between regions but traveling along regional roads instead of using federal network is generally a very bad idea as you can often find yourself driving no faster than 40kph maneuvering between holes or following a long caravan of agricultural machinery. But in some regions local roads are just like 1+1 federal ones. Overall, I wouldn't recommend driving more than 700-800km without a long rest

Many of R and A roads are relatively good nowadays. There are some broken parts, especially on subject borders.

It is better to avoid directions from the big cities Friday evening or to the big cities Sunday evenings (also partially Monday mornings) to avoid traffic jams, since everyone was visiting his "dacha" over weekends. In the same time roads have been imo improved in last 5 years, so 350km look like a small distance, it should be 600-900km instead

Nice presentation. I'm a bit surprised by the bridge choice, it seems to have limited clearance for shipping to get into the Sea of Azov.

But why exactly did they choose this - the more longer and probably more expensive option? They need to build a completely new railway and everything.

They say chosing another option will stop navigation while construction is going on

Average depth 7 metres (23 ft)[1]
Max. depth 14 m (46 ft)[1]

So, no big deal, the sea is to small to allow big ships already.

Maximal depth of the Kerch Strait is 18 metres. Large ships can't sail anyway.

Regarding Kerch bridge: in 1944, at war time, a one now has been built but destroyed next year due to design mistakes - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kerch_Strait_Bridge

Constructing new motorway St.Petersburg-Moscow. First stretch (15-58km) should be opened this year

It looks like it is passing in free area, was space for this motorway reserved for many years?
