I.Metshin: “This year will be recorded in history of road infrastructure as the start of the construction of the Voznesensky Tract”
This year, 6.5 billion rubles will be allocated for the construction and
design of highways in Kazan, allowing the implementation of major projects, such
as the construction of the Voznesensky Tract. Today, the Mayor of Kazan Ilsur
Metshin instructed the city authorities to mobilize during the May holidays and
start work in full force.
Most of the work at the
Voznesensky Tract is carried out underground
This year, the construction of the first section of
the Voznesensky Tract with a length of 3.8 km will start - from the Ametyevskaya
Highway to Pobedy Avenue. Preparatory excavation works and reconstruction of utilities
for the construction of the highway have already begun.
According to the new General Plan, the total length of
the six-lane highway will be about 10 km. This will be another departing
highway, which is crucial for the city, said Igor Kulyazhev, deputy head of the
Kazan Executive Committee. In the future, it will relieve the Mamadyshsky Tract,
partially-the Orenburgsky Tract, and solve the problems of residents of some
“The year 2021 will be recorded in history of road
infrastructure as the start of the construction of the Voznesensky Tract. This
is a departing highway, a collector road of the Mamadyshsky Tract, - the Mayor
said. - Twelve billion rubles will be allocated for construction of the
four-kilometer section from the Ametyevskaya Highway to Pobedy Avenue”.
Moreover, for the road pavement, 3 billion rubles will
be allocated from this amount, the remaining funds will be used primarily for
the rerouting of utility networks. “A fair question is where this price comes
from. Any road, any departing highway, like Pobedy Avenue and R.Sorge Street comprises
networks. These are underground utilities that are not visible to the human
eye: water supply, sewerage, heat pipes, underground electrical networks lie in
the alignment of roads”.
The section at Tikhoretskaya
Street will be expanded to four lanes, and a turn loop will be constructed at the
Other major infrastructure projects include the
construction of a section of the Great Kazan Ring road. This year, work will
begin at a new section: Tikhoretskaya Street from Tekhnicheskaya str. to Magistralnaya
str. will be expanded from two lanes to four.
To improve the traffic situation at the exit from the
Salavat Kupere residential complex, a project has been developed to expand
In the Privolzhsky district, excavation works and
reconstruction of utilities for the turn loop along the Orenburgsky Tract are
being carried out. This will improve the traffic when leaving the residential
districts Lesnoy Gorodok, M-14 and Palitra.
The collector road of Gorkovsky
highway will become the road of life for motorists
In the Kirovsky district, the construction of a 4-lane
highway from Nesmelova str. to the Serebryany Bor residential complex is
underway – the collector road of the Gorkovsky highway. The first stage of the
construction of this highway with a length of 1.5 km on the site from Nesmelova
str. to Admiralteiskiy pond completed last year.
“At this site, we will have to solve a difficult issue
with the purchase of 313 real estate venues. Currently, the venues are being
evaluated and agreements are being signed with the owners”, - I.Kulyazhev
In turn, the Mayor of Kazan called this highway “the
road of life”, since the entry to the city and exit from it along the Gorkovsky
highway have always been difficult, and today there is active construction.
