"Expedition-2014: from Vladivostok to Crimea" preliminary recognized the roads of the Far East and Siberia as the best in the country
Participants of the rally "Expedition-2014: from Vladivostok to Crimea" were preliminarily recognized as the best roads in the country from the Far East and Siberia, RIA Novosti reports with reference to the head of the expedition, deputy of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation Alexander Vasilyev.
The expedition started in June in Vladivostok to assess the quality of roads in Russia. The participants included 15 people on four cars and two motorcycles. With the help of the unique experimental machine "Condor" produced by the state corporation "Rosatom", which is capable of determining the structure and quality indicators of the pavement without damaging the road surface, as well as scanning the geology of the road to a depth of up to three meters, the participants were able to verify the quality of the roads all the way from Vladivostok to Sochi. They drove not only on federal, but also on regional and municipal highways, eventually increasing their mileage by several thousand kilometers.
“We assumed that we would drive 15 thousand kilometers from Vladivostok to Crimea, but in fact our motorcycles have already covered 17 thousand kilometers, and our cars - 19 thousand kilometers. If we talk about the country, the federal road network in the Far East and Siberia is located in Better condition than in Central Russia. This is due to the fact that the roads there are relatively new, and the traffic intensity there is lower than in the Central part, "- said Vasiliev.
He added that the roads are also in good condition in those regions where major international events took place recently, for example, in Vladivostok, in Kazan and in Sochi.
The run will end on 9 August in Sevastopol on the Day of Military Glory and 300-year anniversary of the first Russian naval victory in the Russian history under the command of Peter the Great in the Battle of Gangut.
