Construction of the Ashilta road tunnel
In February 2021, business took us to the Untsukul district of Dagestan, where one of the Company’s first landmark facilities is located — the Ashilta Tunnel (today it is called the Akhulgo tunnel).
Its length is 130 meters; it was designed and built by SMU-55 LLC almost fifteen years ago in one of the most geologically and geodesically complex areas of the Caucasus, in the tectonic fault zone, and was included in the number of those objects, after the implementation of which our company has established itself as a contractor capable of solving the most complex tasks in the most difficult conditions.
