Ilsur Metshin: “Today, the dream of my predecessors has come true”

The highway of the 100th anniversary of the Tatar ASSR opened on the Great Kazan Ring road.

Today, on the eve of the City Day and the Republic of Tatarstan, the first stage of the Great Kazan Ring road was opened on the section from Midkhat Bulatov street to Boriskovskaya street with a length of 800 m. The longest tram route in Russia runs through this highway, which was named after the 100th anniversary of the TASSR- its length is 34 km.

Tatarstan President Rustam Minnikhanov, Deputy Chairman of the Russian government, head of the Organizing Committee on preparation and celebration of the 100th anniversary of the TASSR Marat Khusnullin, Russian Minister of transport Yevgeny Dietrich, the Plenipotentiary Representative of the President of the Russian Federation in the Volga Federal district Igor Komarov, the Mayor of Kazan Ilsur Metshin, first Deputy Minister of construction and housing utilities of the Russian Federation Irek Faizullin congratulated citizens of Kazan with the long-awaited opening.

The section of the Great Kazan Ring road from Midkhat Bulatov street to Boriskovskaya street, which construction began in July 2019 under the national project “Safe and high – quality roads”, is an important stage in creating the necessary road bridge for the city.

“Today, the dream of my predecessors has come true – for 50 years, this road, this tram line was included in the city's General Plan of 1969. And half a century later, thanks to the joint efforts of all our leaders, contractors, and builders, this road of life appeared,- said Ilsur Metshin, the Mayor of Kazan. – This is a landmark event for all of us. This road will allow reducing traffic in the downtown, Pobedy Avenue, allowing us to create the longest tram route in Russia. On behalf of all Kazan citizens, I want to thank the leadership of the country and our republic for implementing this project”.

Then, the symbolic opening of the road was held, after which a column of KAMAZ trucks ran through it.

After that, the kickoff of the tram traffic was made. The heads of the republic and its capital, as well as guests of the city, moved on the trams along the highway of the 100th anniversary of the TASSR. New trams that meet all standards and are equipped with a modern control system will run along the Great Kazan Ring road on routes 5 and 5A.
