Road works have been completed in Saransk for 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia
Administration of Saransk issued a commissioning permit of road junction at Krasnaya and Sevastopolskaya streets which had been constructed under preparation for 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia. With the receipt of commissioning permit fulfillment of the event № 200 under the Federal program of preparation for FIFA World Cup has been finished.
Overpass length is about 1 km. 4 access roads with the total length over 2,5 km lead to the overpass. Altogether, length of all elements of the new road junction is about 4 km.

The overpass will make available road traffic with estimated speed up to 80 km/h across all road lines (with carriageway width 7,5 m in each direction). Safety zone will be guaranteed due to 5-meter traffic strip.
