Mechel Group’s Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant has produced over 2.6 thousand tonnes of rolled metal for the construction of a bridge across the Volga River in Tatarstan in Russia. A new 4 kilometer bridge across the Volga on the territory of the Republic of Tatarstan will become part of the M-12 highway. The bridge will remove the load from the northern bypass of Kazan, as well as unload the existing ferry crossings. Over 2.6 thousand tons of reinforcement, metalware, sheet and structural steel produced by Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant were supplied to the facility by Mechel Group's metal trading company Mechel-Service.The new highway M-12 will connect the largest regional centers and agglomerations (Moscow, Vladimir and Nizhny Novgorod regions, the republics of Chuvashia and Tatarstan). With the commissioning of the M-12, the road from Moscow to Kazan will take only 6.5 hours. Now the travel time on this route is more than 12 hours due to the numerous intersections, traffic lights and the heavy congestion of the existing federal highway. On M-12 there will be no intersections with other roads, all of them will be solved by interchanges at different levels. The completion of the construction of the M-12 highway is scheduled for 2024. In the future, the route will become the main international transport corridor "Europe-Western China".
