“Due to the weather conditions of the Magadan Territory, construction may be carried out during the short period from March to October. But it is not always possible to work even in summer due to floods. Therefore, it was important for us to complete the repair before the hard frost,Maxim Shmorin, Head of the Artificial Structures Construction Management Group at Stroytransgaz JSC, said. “The expertise of STG experts made it possible to complete the work not only before the cold weather, but also ahead of the contract deadline which envisaged that the bridge repair completion date would be in 2024.”

There are no railways in the region, so cars is the main mode of freight and passenger transportation within the region. Improving the transport infrastructure ensures reliable transport links of settlements with regional and local roads.
