VINCI Concessions has opened the final section (Section 8) of the new Moscow-Saint Petersburg (M11) motorway in Russia.

Intended to provide an alternative route from Moscow to St. Petersburg, Sheremetyevo International Airport and cities close to Moscow, the M11 motorway is expected to strengthen Russian transport network safety and connectivity.

The opening follows completion of Section 7 of the M11 project in September 2019 by VINCI Concessions and its partners. The 103km-long Section 7 runs between the cities of Velikiy Novgorod and Tosno, south of Saint Petersburg.

The 669km-long Moscow-Saint Petersburg M11 motorway was implemented on public-private partnership (PPP) basis.

Sections 7 and 8 of the M11 project, under a 27-year PPP, are estimated to entail an investment of €1.6bn ($1.76bn).

The two sections involve a total of 62 bridges and overpasses, 12 service areas and four toll stations.

Operated by a consortium involving VINCI Highways, the first segment of the motorway links the Moscow ring road with Sheremetyevo Airport. It was commissioned in 2015.

North-West Concession Company (NWCC) partnered with the federal highway agency Avtodor to execute the project.

VINCI Concessions and its partners under an availability payment PPP signed with Russian Highways State Company (Avtodor) will operate the Sections 7 and 8 of the M11 project until 2041. VINCI owns a 40% stake in the concession company.

VINCI Concessions CEO Nicolas Notebaert said: "We are very proud to be partners of a project on this scale.

“This new motorway between Moscow and Saint Petersburg will help to very significantly improve mobility in Russia.

“We will continue to build on our experience and our positive track record in Russia to provide Russian motorists with outstanding service focused on performance and safety."

In addition to providing a reliable highway link between Moscow and Saint Petersburg, the new M11 motorway reduces the journey time to about five and a half hours compared to nine hours through the alternative M10 highway.
