There were 4 contenders who made application, but according to the criteria and requirements of Single Tender Committee the winner was joint stock company “Institute Stroiproekt”. Based on the technical assignment on preparation of site planning documentation the main boundaries for planned road placement and its characteristics will be determined, necessary land lots will be reserved, which in its turn is obligatory for further design work and construction.
It should be reminded that preparation and approval of site planning documentation is the main goal of the project ‘Improvement of mobility, traffic safety and environmental protection by planning Saimaa Canal bypass road to BCP “Brusnichnoye”. On March, 2021 Directorate and Managing Authority of the CBC Programme “South-East Finland – Russia” 2014-2020 signed grant contract on project implementation.
It is planned to finish main works within the project up the end of 2022.
For Leningrad region the project has great transport and economic significance. When the new road to BCP “Brusnichnoye” is constructed the number of accidents will be decreased while the conditions for passenger and cargo traffic will be enhanced.
The project is funded 80% by the grant and co-financed from the budget of Leningrad region.
The project partners are Finnish Transport Infrastructure Agency and Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment
At the moment main traffic of motor vehicles goes by the service road for maintaining Saimaa Сanal constructed in 1960s . This road to BCP Brusnichnoye does not meet the requirements for current traffic density, which in its turn negatively influences road capacity and safety. The road is characterized by large number of traffic accidents. The part of them happens in close proximity to BCP area.
Traffic jams with cargo transport in close proximity to BCP area cause the cases when cars are driving onto the opposite strip.
In 2018 Directorate in partnership with the Finnish Transport Infrastructure Agency and Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment of the South-East Finland successfully completed feasibility study of a new road to BCP Brusnichnoye under the grant of Northern Dimension Partnership on Transport and Logistics (NDPTL) cross border cooperation programme.
The feasibility study provided technical parameters, perspective tracing of the new road, estimations of capital and operational expenditures and economic benefits.
