KHABAROVSK BYPASS HIGHWAY

LARGEST TRANSPORT CONCESSION PROJECT IN THE RUSSIAN FAR EAST

Khabarovsk Bypass highway is the largest concession project in the region worth 47 billion rubles. This will be the first toll highway in the Russian Far East. Project implementation will open up new opportunities for the establishment of the transport infrastructure required for the intensive development of the Far Eastern region of Russia.

The highway has strategic importance; it will allow to relieve the city’s road network from transit vehicles and divert the cargo flows away from it. The highway will interconnect three federal highways: A-370 Ussuri, R-297 Amur and A-375 Vostok, and will provide access to the Chinese road network in the future.

The road will span 27.1 kilometers. The 15-meter wide road surface with 4 lanes and a speed limit of 120 km/h will allow a throughput of up to 25,000 cars per day. The road will pass through five traffic interchanges and 24 bridges and overpasses. Five barrier-type toll collection points will be installed at various sites.
