underway for the construction of two aboveground crossings on Pobedy Ave. near
the new highway and the bridge over the Noksa River, and a temporary bypass
road along Fuchika Street will also open.
According to I.
Kulyazhev, a number of private land plots is located along the construction of
the road. “Now work is underway to repurchase them,”- he said.
“This year we
are not only building the Voznesensky tract, but also expanding the Gorkobsky Highway,
continuing to build the Great Kazan Ring Road. This is not only the issue of transformation
of the city and the reduction of traffic congestions, but also an effective
anti-crisis measure. Thanks to these projects, thousands of Kazan citizens
working in the construction industry receive decent wages and confidence in the
future,”- the Mayor summed up.
