The Head of Bashkortostan, Radiy Khabirov, met with the head of the Federal Road Agency (Rosavtodor), Roman Novikov, on November 16 in Moscow at the XVII International Forum “Transport of Russia”. The agenda includes issues related to implementing large infrastructure projects in the region.
One of the most large-scale projects is constructing a section of the M-7 Volga federal highway. It will become part of the Kazan-Ekaterinburg expressway, which, on behalf of Russian President Vladimir Putin, will extend the M-12 Moscow-Kazan highway. The new section, 65 km long, will pass through the Ilishevsky, Dyurtyulinsky, and Chekmagushevsky districts, bypassing five settlements - Isametovo, Verkhneyarkeyevo, Layashty, Ishkarovo, and Asyanovo.
The head of Rosavtodor thanked the republic’s management team for practical cooperation in registering land for the new route and relocating utilities.
“For our part, we will fulfill all the obligations that Rosavtodor assumed for the construction of the highway,” noted Roman Novikov.
The meeting also discussed the completion of the Eastern exit project from Ufa. The head of Bashkortostan said the work is being carried out according to the approved schedule.
“We discussed the issues of financing the Eastern Exit with Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Government Marat Khusnullin. The necessary funds will arrive at the beginning of December,” said Radiy Khabirov following the meeting.
