The most of repair works on M-4 Don highway was shifted to the night time

For unimpeded passage of the heavy traffic to the coast and back, most of repair works on M-4 Don highway was postponed to the end of the third and the middle of the fourth quarter of this year. That was done in order to ensure traffic in all lanes (two in each direction) to the fullest. Where it is impossible to interrupt production process, the road workers are working at night time or around the clock.

This procedure was introduced due to high overload of the highway.  Only in Rostov region, along 354 kilometers of M-4 Don highway, a 30% increase in traffic intensity was recorded compared to the beginning of August 2019.

This year, 182.5 kilometers of M-4 Don highway will be repaired. It is planned to repair 10.7 km in Voronezh region this year, the road workers will complete the works on two artificial structures and repair four as well. In Rostov region, repair works will be carried out on approximately 42 km, including nine artificial structures, and on 44.6 km in Krasnodar Territory.

This will make the M-4 highway safer and more comfortable for motorists.
