A concession project – construction of the Eastern Exit from Ufa to M-5 Ural Federal Highway.
In 2017 VTB Group joined the concession project, which includes the financing, construction and operation of a regional toll road in the Republic of Bashkortostan – a new exit from Ufa to M-5 Ural Federal Highway (“Eastern Exit”). This transport corridor will link М7 and М5 federal highways. The agreement aims to complete a road tunnel, to build a bridge and a road and toll booths, to develop a traffic control and a road maintenance system.
Implementation of the project is important bot for development of the city, its satellite communities and the regional infrastructure network. The exit will lead to a significant reduction in the load on the existing roads and provide the residents with a more convenient and faster access to M-5 Federal Highway. The Eastern Exit is the largest infrastructure project in the Republic.
