The M12’s southern bypass of the city of Vladimir has opened to traffic

On October 14, the first section of Stage 2 of the M12 Moscow–Nizhny Novgorod–Kazan highway with the Free Flow tolling system was opened to traffic. The new highway section bypasses of the city of Vladimir on the south and is 26 km long.

The Free Flow tolling technology is being installed along the entire M12 highway by General Operator and Kazan Telematika, which are subsidiaries of the Telematika Corporation. In Russia, they are the only providers of the free-flow tolling technology, which eliminates stops and bottlenecks at tolling points.

The ceremony was attended by Igor Levitin, Aide to the President of the Russian Federation, Marat Khusnullin, Deputy Chairman of the RF Government, Valentin Ivanov, Deputy Minister of Transport of Russia, Roman Novikov, Director of Rosavtodor Federal Road Agency, Vyacheslav Petushenko, Chairman of the Board of Avtodor State Corporation, and Rustam Minnikhanov, President of the Republic of Tatarstan.

Previously, on September 8, the first sub-section of Stage 0 of the M12 highway was opened to traffic by Vladimir Putin, President of the Russian Federation. The length of the section was 22.5 km, extending from the Central Ring Road to the Big Moscow Ring Road A-108.
