IRKUTSK, October 24 (Itar-Tass) — Traffic on a 5-km reconstructed stretch of the Baikal federal highway, including bridges across the Uda and Zastryanka Rivers has been opened in the Nizhneudinsk town in the Irkutsk region, the highway’s management told Itar-Tass on Monday.
Four gravel sections with the total length of 1.5 km have been liquidated at the stretch, two layers of new asphalt concrete have been laid, drainages have been restored, junctions and side lanes have been rebuilt and embarkation bays for urban passenger transport made.
“The federal budget allocations for the renovation of this road section reached 47 million roubles,” the management noted.
In 2010, the same reconstruction was performed on a 12-km stretch of the Baikal highway in the Usolye-Sibirskoye town, and last week traffic was opened on its 5-kilometer renovated stretch in the regional centre.
