The landscaping and construction of tram rails is being completed at a section of the new road from Midhat Bulatov str. to Tekhnicheskaya str.
Today, Kazan Mayor Ilsur Metshin inspected the progress of construction works of the Big Kazan Ring on the site from Midhat Bulatov street to Tekhnicheskaya street. The work is well underway on the largest road project since the Universiade.
The work on the first section of the road completed by 90%
The new road will become an extension of Pobedy Av. through the Solnechny Gorod district with an access to the Verkhny Kaban lake and then to Tekhnicheskaya street. Thus, the road will connect the industrial zone between the Volga and Kaban lakes with the residential part by the shortest route. The construction of this part of a four-lane road with tram rails, a junction on the Fermskoe highway, and a pedestrian crossing has become the largest infrastructure road project since the preparation for the Universiade 2013.
“The Big Kazan Ring is one of the main traffic arteries of Kazan. This is a very important project, which we were could implement thanks to the Federal program “Safe and quality roads” and the assistance of Tatarstan President Rustam Minnikhanov”, - I.Metshin noted.
In total, 7.5 billion rubles were allocated for the construction and overhaul of the roads in Kazan this year, including 2.8 billion rubles for the construction of the section of the Big Kazan Ring.
The construction of the road on this site is carried out in two stages. The works on a section from Midhat Bulatov str. to Boriskovskaya str. started in July 2019. A four-lane road with a length of 800 m is being built here. The builders are constructing tram rails to Tekhnicheskaya street, connecting which will allow to circle the tram route, reported to the Mayor of the deputy head of the Executive Committee Igor Kulyazhev. The total length of the ring tram route will be 34 km – this will be the longest tram route in Russia.
To date, all work is carried out on schedule, and if the weather is good, the construction will be completed by the end of August, said Ruslan Musin, deputy director for construction of Glavtatdortrans. “The work under the first stage is 90% complete. The workers performed concreting of all the superstructures on the over-bridges, actually completing all the concrete work on this section”, - he explained.
In March, the second stage of construction of the Big Kazan Ring started on a 1,222 km section from the Boriskovskaya street to Tekhnicheskaya street. According to R.Musin, as of today, 35-40% of the work has been completed on this site. Today, work is going on in several directions there: the reconstruction of utilities is underway, the roadway is being constructed, sections are being prepared for tram rails and a bridge is being built across the Monastyrskaya canal. Concrete work on the construction of supports for the bridge has been completed, now sub-trusses and moldings are being installed, other works are underway.
Almost a thousand large-sized trees were planted on the site
A special feature of the construction of this section of the Big Kazan Ring is that the landscaping of the territory is carried out at the same time. Presently, 928 out of the planned 1044 large-sized trees have already been planted along the road, as well as more than 2.5 thousand out of 3 thousand shrubs.
In addition to plants, a 10 km long irrigation system and outdoor lighting networks are being installed, Igor Kulyazhev reported.
