NLMK Group to supply 2 million tonnes of by-product for construction of Moscow Ring Road
NLMK Group, an international steelmaking company with operations in Russia, the USA and the European Union, has signed a two-year contract with road building company AVTOBAN for the supply of by-products that will be used in the construction of start-up facility #3 of the Central Ring Road in the Moscow Region (CRR-3).
The CRR is set to be a key link in the transport network of Moscow Region, as well as a hub for Russia’s rapid-transit highway network and a part of its international transport corridors. Start-up facility #3 will be 105.3 km in length.
Under the contract, NLMK Group will supply around 2 million tonnes of crushed stone, sand and gravel to AVROBAN from its Lipetsk site. These steelmaking by-products will be used as fundamental components for road dressing and in the cement mix, for creating temporary roads and sites for worker camps as well as asphalt plants.
The section of the CRR-3 under development will connect the new Moscow-Saint-Petersburg highway with federal highway M-7 Volga. This new four- and six-lane highway will pass through the Solnechnogorsk, Dmitrov, Pushkino, Schelkovo and Noginsk districts, and the urban district of Chernogolovka.
Construction work is already under way on a section of the CRR that is more than 30 km in length. Completion of the construction of the start-up facility is scheduled for 2019.
