October 14, 2017, St Petersburg

During his working trip to St Petersburg, Vladimir Putin took part in the launch of a reconstructed road section in Gatchina, Leningrad Region.

The President received information on the progress made in implementing the project, had a brief conversation with the workers and congratulated them on the upcoming Road Workers’ Day.

In addition, Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov and Head of the Federal Road Agency Roman Starovoit reported to the President on the situation with road construction in the northwest of the country, Krasnodar Territory and Crimea.

The modernised section of the federal highway R-23 (former M-20), St Petersburg – Pskov – Pustoshka – Nevel, will ensure a better transport connection of St Petersburg and the Leningrad Region with the Republic of Belarus and the Baltic countries.
