“Khabarovsk Bypass” motor highway
Client: Government of the Khabarovsk Krai
General contractor: Regional Concession Company, LLC
In December 2016, Government of the Khabarovsk Krai and Regional Concession Company (part of VIS Group) signed a concessionary agreement on the construction and operation of the toll highway named “Khabarovsk Bypass”. This is the first project of public-private partnership in the transport sector of the Far East and the largest one in the Khabarovsk Krai.
The road is of strategic importance, linking together three federal highways: "Ussuri" A-370, "Amur" P-297, and "East" A-375. Future development of the project will provide access to the highway network of China. The toll road is also intended to relieve the city center from transit traffic.
The total length of the road will be 26.8 kilometers. The roadway width of 15 meters, 4 lanes and the maximum permissible speed of 120 km / h will allow road capacity up to 25 thousand cars per day. The road will pass through five road junctions, 24 bridges and overpasses. Five points of charge will be set at various sites.
The concession agreement is signed for 15 years, including 3 years of the construction. The total cost of the project is more than RUB 40 billion. 25% of this amount are funds invested by the private investor. It is expected that 29 RUB billion will be financed at the expense of subsidies, including those allocated to the Federal Road Agency of the Russian Federation from the funds collected by the PLATON system. It will be the first toll road in the Far East. Implementation of the project will open up new possibilities for the formation of the transport infrastructure required for the intensive development of the Far East region.
