SOCHI, January 27 (Itar-Tass) – The first stage of a new alternate road opened for traffic in Sochi at midnight on Saturday. So far, the traffic is possible only in the direction of Adler, a source at the Direction for Road Construction (“Chernomorye”) told Itar-Tass.
"The road, dubbing Kurortny Prospect, will become the chief transportation artery in Sochi in 2013. This federal road will have four lanes (two in each direction) and seven adjacent transport junctions which will connect it to the streets and roads of the Central and Khosta regions of Sochi. We would like to thank the people of Sochi for their active support for the construction of this high-tech federal Olympic facility of transport infrastructure,” Roman Starovoit, the head of the Federal Road Agency, said.
The first stage of the dubbing road includes three tunnels and four bridge overpasses.
All the three stages of the alternate road will begin operation in the fourth quarter of 2013.
