M-11 Moscow – Saint Petersburg Highway Torzhok Bypass in Tver Region Opened to Traffic
PJSC Mostotrest (Mostotrest) together with its subsidiary TransStroiMekhanizatsiya (TSM) completed construction of the new km 208 – km 258 section (the Torzhok Bypass, Tver region) of the federal highway M-11 Moscow – Saint Petersburg. The new section was opened to traffic on 15 December 2017.
The road section was built within the framework of a long-term investment agreement between the State Company «Avtodor» (Avtodor SC) and Mostotrest, and constitutes the fourth stage of construction of the M-11 Moscow - Saint Petersburg Highway. The route passes through the Kalinin and Torzhok districts of the Tver Region, bypassing the town of Torzhok. Originating in the area of the village of Mednoye, the new road merges, at km 258, into the Voronezh Bypass, an already operational segment of the M-11 route.
Work on the project was launched in 2014. The contract scope included construction of 3 split-level traffic interchanges, 26 elevated structures, including 4 bridges and 19 overpasses on M-11, 2 overpasses as part of traffic interchanges, an overpass over the Mednoye-Kulitskoe-Kievo road, as well as 5 game passages. The new section design speed is 150 km/h, which corresponds to highway category IA. Traffic on the section is toll-based.
The long-term investment agreement between Avtodor SC and Mostotrest was signed in December 2014. The total cost of construction was RUB32.3 billion, including VAT (government financing of RUB27.1 and contractor co-financing of RUB5.2 billion).
The km 208 - km 258 section will become part of modern and efficient high-speed road transport infrastructure linking Moscow and Saint Petersburg, which will redirect transit traffic beyond 55 settlements. The new M-11 Moscow – Saint Petersburg Highway will run from the Moscow Ring Road to the Saint Petersburg Ring Road. The highway has a total length of 669 km. The route will pass through the Central and Northwestern federal districts (the Moscow, Tver, Novgorod and Leningrad regions), bypassing all settlements. Completion of the M-11 Highway will enable switching traffic flows between the existing M-10 «Rossiya» Highway and M-11.
