Launching a new section of M-11 “Moscow- St. Petersburg” Highway

On August 30, a ceremony of launching a new toll section from the 58 km to 97 km of the M-11 Moscow-St. Petersburg Highway took place. Beginning on September 1, the section will be open to users.

Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Maxim Akimov, Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation Yevgeny Dietrich, Chairman of the Board of the State Company "Russian Highways" Sergey Kelbakh, and other officials attended the event. Thierry Puy, CEO of UTS LLC, represented the company. 

The new section from 58 to 97 km is going to bypass the cities of Solnechnogorsk and Klin. These districts are currently the busiest transport hubs in the Moscow region. The new road is designed to ease the transport situation, to unload the federal road M-10, and to improve the ecological situation in areas where about half a million people live.

“Today the M-11 Moscow – St. Petersburg is one of the most modern highways with four lanes and multi-level interchanges. We will do everything possible to make the road safe and convenient for drivers," said Thierry Puy, UTS LLC CEO. 

High-speed toll motorway M-11 Moscow - St. Petersburg will stretch from MKAD to the Ring Road. The total length of the motorway is 669 km. Sections from 15 to 97 km and from 208 to 543 km are currently in operation.
