M-11 Yamuga - Voskresenski section opened to traffic
On July 3, 2019, the M-11 Yamuga – Voskresenski section in the Tver region was opened to traffic. The new km 97 – km 149 section of the M-11 Moscow - St. Petersburg toll highway was built by TransStroyMekhanizatsiya (TSM, member of the Mostotrest Group).
TSM won the contract in July 2016 through participation in a single-step tender held by the Russian Highways State Company (Avtodor). The project was implemented as part of a long-term investment agreement for construction, maintenance, repair, overhaul and toll-based operation of the km 58 – km 97 and km 97 – km 149 sections (Stages 1 and 2) of the M-11 Moscow-Saint Petersburg highway. The project Stage 1 (construction of the km 58 - km 97 section bypassing the towns of Klin and Solnechnogorsk near Moscow) was completed in August 2018.
During the 2nd stage of the project, TSM built a 52 km section of a new four-lane Category 1A road. The maximum allowed speed is 110 kmh. The section is fully compliant with modern safety requirements, including full-length median barriers and lighting. In addition to flat road infrastructure, TSM built two traffic interchanges, including a Zavidovo/Konakovo exit at km 124, six rest areas and two toll-collection stations.
The new road is equipped with an automated traffic management system (ATMS), and is patrolled round-the-clock by emergency warden crews.
Bypassing settlements, the road will absorb a considerable part of the congested M-10 traffic previously passing through settlements. The operator of the new M-11 section is United Toll Systems (UTS), under an operation agreement with Avtodor.The M-11 km 58 - km 149 section will become part of modern and efficient high-speed road infrastructure linking Moscow and St. Petersburg, will relieve more than 100 settlements of transit traffic and create conditions for regional economic growth in its area.
