Among the assets managed by Avtodor are the M1 ’Belarus’ (450 km), the M4 ’Don’ (1,716 km), and the M3 ’Ukraine’ (432 km) highways. The company is carrying out a comprehensive reconstruction of these roads.
By the end of 2013, the total length of roads under the management of Avtodor had reached 2,733.6 km. Of this, 1,705.5 km is classified in the top category of roads, 24% more than at the end of 2010 (1,372 km).
Avtodor is the contractor responsible for the construction of the high-speed motorway between Moscow and St. Petersburg and the Central Ring Road (TsKAD) in Moscow Region.
Avtodor uses a public—private partnership (PPP) mechanism for all major projects.
In 2013, an 18 km stretch of highway was commissioned for the M1 ’Belarus’ road, bypassing Odintsovo (Moscow Region). This is the first road project in Russia to be implemented in the form of a concession agreement, in which the state company acts as the concession granter.
