TSM wins contract for Bobrov bypass in Russia
November 15, 2018 – TransStroyMekhanizatsiya (TSM), a subsidiary of Russian heavy construction company Mostotrest, has won a RUB5.1bn ($75m) contract from the Voronezh Region Transport and Road Department to build the Southeast Bobrov Bypass in the Bobrov Municipal District.
TSM won the contract during an e-auction. The project is set to be completed by October 2021.
As part of the contract, TSM will build a new two-lane Category 2 road with a length of 9.4km, a bridge across the Bityug river with a length of 237.55m (at km 3 of the new road) and two overpasses (at km 2 and km 9 of the road).
The company will also rearrange utility, telecommunication and power transmission lines, water supply networks and surface gas pipelines, build a cattle passageway with a length of 29.10 linear metres (at km 6 of the road), install noise screens, barrier fences and road signs, and take up road surface markings.
Currently, the January 22nd and Avdeev streets – the main transport arteries in Bobrov – are saturated, especially in summer, due to heavy transit traffic. High volume of traffic is leading to rapid road surface deterioration and causing air pollution, while associated vibration is affecting nearby buildings and their occupants.
Moreover, a steep uphill stretch under the existing railway bridge has become a challenge for some trucks, creating additional congestion.
The construction of the new road will take heavy traffic out of central Bobrov, as well as improve the town’s overall transport situation and help preserve its historical part.
The project will be executed within the framework of the Voronezh Region Government Program Transport System Development (subprogram ‘Development of the Voronezh Region Road Sector’).
In the Voronezh region, TSM is currently building the four-lane Losevo and Pavlovsk Bypass at km 633 – km 715 of the M-4 ‘Don’ Highway.
In November 2013, the company completed construction of the Northeast Voronezh Bypass (km 492 – km 517), and, in November 2016, the Novaya Usman and Rogachevka Bypass (km 517 – km 544).
