Mechel-Service Supplies Rolls to Reconstruction of M4 Don Federal HighwayMechel Group’s steel sales company — Mechel Service — continues to supply rebar for reconstruction of Russia’s federal highway M4 Don in Rostov Region.
Currently the reconstruction concerns the four-lane highway in Rostov Region, and a far-off belt road bypassing Krasnodar is being built. Works also continue near Novorossiysk, where tunnels are being made through seaside offspurs and bridges are built over gorges to make the winding road wider and straighter. More than 500 tonnes of rebar produced by Mechel’s Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant have been shipped for building a belt road near Rostov-on-Don, bypassing the town of Aksay.
Reconstruction of the M4 Don federal highway is extremely important. In summer, the highway is often overloaded with traffic as vacationers travel from Moscow and other major cities to the Black Sea shores, as well as trucks transporting fruit and vegetables from the south to central Russia.
M4 Don’s route goes from Moscow through Voronezh, Rostov-on-Don and Krasnodar to Novorossiysk. Its length totals 1,543 kilometers.
