On 13 June 2012, leading news agencies of the country reported about the collapse of a section of the highway connecting Vladivostok and Russky Island; the road has been erected especially for the APEC summit.
“A section of the highway, which has seen 29 billion rubles of investment, collapsed after heavy rain, and several tons of soil absorbed garages and a beach underneath. It was reported earlier that the prefecture of Vladivostok had begun an investigation. The Prime Minister of Russia, Dmitry Medvedev, demanded that the “Pacific Ocean Bridge Construction Company” company, which had built the highway, be punished” – newsru.com reports.
SMU-55 shares the concern for the quality of modern road and highway construction – the company adopted additional means to strengthen control for the quality of conducted works on existing objects.
