Reconstruction of Kievskoe highway will finish at the end of 2010

The Head of the Committee for Improvement and Road Facilities Boris Murashov declared that reconstruction of Kievskoe highway might finish at the end of 2010.
The highway is extended from two traffic lanes to six. There will be created a demarcation strip in the centre. Now in some parts, including the descent from Pulkovo Heights to the southern border of Saint-Petersburg, cars can drive all the lanes. However there is a speed limit of 40 kmh. The project implies building overpasses across Volkhonskoe and Krasnoselskoe highways several pedestrian crossings.
