The Section 5 of the Moscow CCR is located  in the Naro-Fominsk, Odintsovo, Istra and Solnechnogorsk districts and the Zvenigorod Urban District of the Moscow region. The 76.44 km section 5 of the CRR project involves the construction, maintenance, current and capital repair of the road. The project includes the development of 8 bridges, 12 overpasses, among others. The contract period is 24 years.

The purpose of building the CRR of the Moscow region is to create the conditions for forming a modern transport infrastructure integrated into the network of international transport corridors, to unlock the transit potential of our country and to facilitate the servicing of traffic flows outside the central part of the Moscow transport hub, while reducing the traffic burden of its road network.

The M3 Ukraine project involves the reconstruction, maintenance, current and capital repair and toll operation of the road from Moscow to the border with Ukraine (on to Kiev) passing through the cities of Kaluga, Bryansk on sections km 124- km 173 and km 173 - km 194. The contract period is 24 years.

The preferred bidder for this project is Autobahn, which had estimated the total project investment at RUB17.101 billion (US$375.3 billion). The team beat out competition from Mostotrest.
