In 2021, thanks to a national road project in 84 regions of the country, contractors brought about a standard of about 2 thousand km of tourist routes. Among them are the roads to unique sights, where the New Year mood reigns today.
“This year, more than 300 sections leading to New Year’s festivities have been repaired under the Safe High-Quality Roads National Project. Among them are routes to the residences of Ded Morozov in the Udmurt Republic, the Republic of Mari El and the Kaluga region, roads to the main city Christmas trees, ice rinks and favorite recreation places for residents of the regions, including in Nizhny Novgorod – the New Year’s capital of Russia – 2022 “, – said Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin.
The residence of the all-Udmurt Grandfather Frost – Tol Babai – is located in the ancient village of Sharkan. On the territory of the cultural and tourist center, leisure activities are held all year round, development circles and the Sharkan House of Crafts work. Despite the fact that 50 thousand guests come here every year, the path to the estate of Tol Babai was not comfortable: a gravel road led here, there was no guest parking, there were no sidewalks.
This year the situation has changed. The specialists renovated 875 m of the roadway – from Sovetskaya Street to the cultural and tourist center, laid two layers of asphalt concrete, and strengthened the shoulders. In addition, at the expense of the republican budget, a new sidewalk has been equipped along the renovated roadbed.
It was a real event both for the residents of Sharkan and for the guests of the patrimony of the all-Udmurt Santa Claus. On New Year’s Eve, Tol Babai himself thanked the road workers for their good work. “On behalf of the guests of my estate and on my own behalf, I thank you for the excellent road to my domain! It is with great pleasure that my guests get to me comfortably on the new asphalt. I invite you to a fascinating journey to my homeland – to the village of Sharkan. New Year is just around the corner, and a fabulous atmosphere reigns in my estate. I wish you a Happy New Year! Believe in miracles, and they will come to your home with joy and surprises, ”he said in his congratulations to the Regional Ministry of Transport and Roads.
New Year’s mood also reigns in the northernmost village of Kuknur, Sernur region of the Republic of Mari El. Here are the possessions of the Mari Father Frost – Yӱshtӧ Kugyz. It has been welcoming guests during the winter break for 10 years. The road to the village is long, and until recently its quality has caused criticism, but thanks to the national project “Safe high-quality roads” every year it is getting better.
The 10-kilometer section of the Sernur – Kazanskoye – Kuknur highway (from the 21st to the 31st km) was included in the list of objects of the national project in 2019. The contractor arranged the lower and upper layers of the asphalt concrete pavement using the cold regeneration method. There are two bridges at the facility, where the parapet and railings have been restored, and drainage grids have been installed. Next year, the repair of the highway will continue, and a section with a length of 12.8 km will be brought to the standard.
“Thanks to the national project“ Safe high-quality roads ”, the road leading to the Yoshtu Kugyza residence will be repaired. Residents and guests of our republic will be able to get there with comfort, ”said Konstantin Shikhov, director of GKU“ Mariiskavtodor ”. “In general, there are many tourist sites in the Republic of Mari El, and we, as customers of works on regional roads, strive to ensure that there is good transport accessibility to them.”
In Kaluga, the residence of Father Frost is located in Grigorov Lane. On the eve of New Year’s holidays, this is one of the most popular places of pastime for residents and guests of the city. The repair work on the 263.8 m section was carried out in a comprehensive manner: the road surface was renewed, the ramps were equipped, new markings were applied.
“The renovation of Grigorov Lane was very important, first of all, because it is located in the historical center, adjacent to the favorite walking places of Kaluga residents – Voskresenskaya Street and Voskresensky Lane,” said Tatyana Aren, head of Kaluga’s Single Order Service for Municipal Services. – The House of Craftsmen is located here, and the residence of Father Frost is open on New Year’s holidays. We are glad that from this year the road to it meets all the standards. “
Kaluga was chosen as the New Year’s capital of Russia – 2021, now the symbol of the project – a crystal snowflake – has been transferred to Nizhny Novgorod. This year, thanks to the national project “Safe high-quality roads” in the New Year’s capital of Russia – 2022, the renovation of Minin and Pozharsky squares – the place where the main city Christmas tree is traditionally installed and where the most famous landmark – the Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin is located. Also, the road workers worked on the streets adjacent to the square – Alekseevskaya, Varvarskaya, Ulyanov, Minin.
“After the completion of the renovation on Minin Street in the city center, a territory with a length of about 2.5 km, landscaped in a single concept, appeared – this is the renewed Sennaya Square, Minin Square, and now the street of the same name. Here the roadway, driveways into courtyards, sidewalks have been repaired, on which new tiles of contrasting colors have appeared, focusing on historical buildings, ”said the head of the city Yuri Shalabayev.
