Korsakov – Novikovo Road Section Opened in the Area of Prigorodnoye Asset

The official opening ceremony of Korsarov-Novikovo road section (11–13 km) including the new bridge across the Mereya River was held in the area of Prigorodnoye Asset.

In 2016 the Administration of Korsakov Municipality and Sakhalin Energy entered into the Agreement on target financing of the road section renovation. The construction commenced in 2017. The Mereya River bridge was designed based on the cutting-edge engineering solutions specially developed for working in challenging engineering and geological conditions typical for the area.

Vladimir Sidorenko, Deputy Chairman of the Sakhalin government, noted that the newly opened bridge was another New Year present for the municipality. “With this bridge, Ozyorskoye and Novikovo settlements will become more accessible for the Sakhalin people,” he added. The Mayor of Korsakov Municipality Timur Maginsky said that now the road was more safe and comfortable.

“Moreover, we plan to complete the paving of the road to Ozyorskoye settlement within the next two years,” he stressed.

“The opening of a new road section will be a great contribution to road safety in this direction. In addition, the coastline in the area of Prigorodnoye Asset will be more comfortable for recreation due to lack of noise and dust from the passing vehicles,” noted Oleg Tkachenko, Head of Sakhalin Energy Organisational Support Division.
