Toll Road Tender Announced

Moscow has announced a tender to build а toll road parallel to Kutuvkosky Prospekt, Itar-Tass reported. The planned road, which will stretch from the business center Moscow City to the Moscow Ring Road and meet the M1 toll road bypassing Odintsovo, will require 40 billion rubles ($1.1 billion) for construction and 20 billion rubles for the city to buy the land and then rent it to developers.

Expected to include four lanes of traffic, the project will take five to seven years to build, with the agreement between the city and the tender winner lasting 40 years. The investor will be able to set the road's fare, though within limits prescribed by Moscow authorities.

The city's head of construction Marat Khusnullin had earlier estimated that the road would have a throughput of 40,000 automobiles a day.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
