The route that will connect Germany and China will pass through Russia


The implementation of the most ambitious road project "Meridian" will start in 2021. Chairman of the State Duma of the Russian Federation Vyacheslav Volodin announced this on his Instagram account.


The speaker of the lower house of the Russian parliament noted that the route will connect Germany and China, passing through the territories of Russia, Belarus and Poland. Its end points will be the port cities of Hamburg and Shanghai.

The highway will run diagonally through the Saratov region from the Perelyubsky district to the Turkovsky district, with a bridge crossing (across the Volga - ed.)

- said Volodin on the page dedicated to the region from which he was elected to the State Duma.

The length of the road section on the territory of Russia will be about 2 thousand km. It will involve the Orenburg, Saratov, Tambov, Lipetsk, Bryansk and Smolensk regions. The project will provide jobs for a large number of people, improve transport links and give impetus to development economics regions.

The total length of the gigantic highway will be about 8,5 thousand km. Its construction will speed up logistics between Europe and Asia by almost five times and redistribute (diversify) transport flows. In the future, unmanned road trains up to 50 meters long will run along it.

    It was not for nothing that the Sumerians jumped against Russian transit, and the Poles encouraged them ... But I can hardly imagine drones with a bunch of traffic lights, overpasses and incomprehensible junctions on this route. Especially in the winter. And the track is four-lane.

      Such a highway is useful for domestic transport in the Russian Federation, as a route
      Whether intercontinental road trains are hidden, a double-track shuttle service with a load of hundreds of containers for two drivers and without intersections, accidents, road pavement and other crap is more economical, reliable and well-tested ... and the transportation will decrease significantly, in the next five years, for sure, perhaps such a highway will remain in the projects ...

        This highway already exists. The Silk Road is called. Marketers have changed the name to "meridian". Maybe in Saratov, the road builders are still poking around, but here it has been used for at least a year.

        Railway transportation for 2 thousand kilometers, in modern conditions, is at least 2-3 days, in reality it is even more. Russian Railways already has logistics not to change, but on the highway it is possible to organize so that these 2 thousand km of cargo would pass in a day and a half, even without drones and violations of labor laws.

          If the highway is run through the city, there will also be congestion and passage for several days, as in the case of the railway in a cross with the local railway transportation. Build a high-speed separate railway line (highways will become cheaper) and the trains will drive from 200-300 km per hour ... Everything is economically feasible ...

            You know, in my life I have sometimes been to Europe and traveled by car to some countries. I made an interesting observation. It turns out that it is possible to lay a highway through the city and it will work without congestion and traffic lights. Moreover, these are free tracks.
            There are no trains in the Russian Federation that can travel 200 km per hour. I once ordered a container for 1000 km by railway. So, this container from the beginning to the place went exactly for a week. My friend works with a long-range. Goes just about one route per 1000 km. So, if (let's say) a truck is thrown to him on Monday before lunchtime, he overcomes 40-50 percent of the way by the evening, then sleeps and in good health arrives at his destination by 8-9 am.

      I don’t think there will be branches from such a route to every passing village, and the interchanges have long been learned to make two-level, without "heaps of traffic lights." Such a road will most likely be toll, without drunk tractor drivers on it.

        I live in one of the listed areas. So there is no need for fairy tales about hyperloops on a dedicated lane. A toll road from China to Germany with cows underpasses? Drones are made taking into account drunk tractor drivers and all sorts of rams crossing the road.

          It is much more difficult than taking cash straight into your pocket on the spot.

            There would be someone to fight with, they will figure it out, the main thing is to build it.
      2. You can remove the batteries and sell - they are expensive.

    Once I looked at the GUGL maps that the most direct route from Berlin to Shanghai goes through Kaliningrad, Peter, Syktyvkar, across Siberia through Ulan Bator, etc.)))
    And so, if the authorities had brains, then the road from Belarus to China should have been built long ago. It would have contributed to the development of the country anyway, and if the Chinese and the EU had joined it, it would have brought even more benefits.
    And you need to build normally. And then I'm driving along the M7, there are bumpers all around, there is not even a crossing, but there is a sign "settlement". Perche? As I understand it for feeding the nut.

    the route will connect Germany and China, passing through the territories of Russia, Belarus and Poland.

    And they will drive heavy DIESEL road trains along it, foul the areas of the route no worse than XNUMX-hour industrial plants!

      As small children, hto and kavo, and where will they drive? If only money from the Russian budget for offshore companies, then no construction is needed for this.
