Russian Roads 4

This is Russian Federal highway Moscow city – Yakutsk City, named “Lena”, nowadays.

The road doesn’t have asfalt surface, though it is a Federal, vital highway.

Everytime it rains the road gets paralized, these shots are made a few days before the traffic jam for 600 cars got stuck there. Hunger and lack of the fuel followed, according to the witnesses. One woman gave a born to a child right in the public bus she was riding.

Construction team afraids to appear on site because during their previous visit it was beaten by people who stuck in the jam for a few days. People breaking the locks on the trucks, in a search of food and warm cloths.

Fuel, food, firearms and steel tow-line are the things that are needed most these days on this Federal highway.

  1. Jack, there is so much interesting in the world you dont
    know …

    And by the way, your fkn slang is of no interest to russians, dont teach them plz

  2. To 12: This is not winter road. This is only one road to Yakutsk intended for all seasons. There is no another way to come to Yakutsk exclude airplane and ships.

  3. AnnDi –> and there are not 10000 km btw cities in Spain too… and no -50C in the winter n snow 8 month a year either….

    So what.. he just thought spanish roads were bad. Ptob not interested in the weather forecast or other bs ur moaning zzzz

  4. You all really thinking it’s a normal russian road? It was just a moment when the strong rain was coming down… Looks your trobles better…

  5. These roads are still like that in case of invasion.

    It worked against Napoleon and Hitler.

    It will work against the next invader too.

    You want good roads? or welcome to invasion?

  6. How much does it cost every time this happens, to get people out? The cost of damage to vehicles, the cost to people, the cost to get equipment in and drag cars out, the cost to bulldoze parts of the road etc…?

    Add up all these costs, multiply by the times this happens. You want me to believe that that money can’t be spent on paving this road, one mile at a time?


    • It is cheaper. If you want paved road, you’ll have to do it annually for about two may be three months tops. Next year – start all over.

  7. Wow – incredible! Thanks god streets up here in Switzerland are near perfect…except during winter snow-storms!

  9. Yeah, this is Russia. It’s not the typical state of Russian roads, however – this is quite an extreme. Moscow has several strategic roadways going out in the 4 cardinal directions – these are completely paved, high traffic highways. The road in the pics looks like it’s a winter road – in the summer, when it rains, it becomes a long strip of mud, which is quite logical and not atypical of any unpaved road.

    Just my thoughts….Nice pics, though

  10. OK, why would people even try to drive on if it does this every time it raind?!? As Russia said, “It’s a winter road. In summer time entrance to this road is closed. Every one who stick in this mess guilty itself.”

    It’s simply amazing that people even try to drive on this… and in regular passenger cars, no less!

  11. Bloopy, If thay road was a dry, dusty, dirt road that DID have rock and gravel on it and was drivable, no amount of gravel or rock would improve it once you have a deluge of rain like that. It would be just like those pics with mud up to the axles once you drove on it. It would push the gravel right down into the mud. We have it all the time here in Arizona, during our rainy seasons. Especially on the Navajo Indian reservation, whose roads are 90% dirt.

  12. Hey, guys, cool down)))))))If there`s no rain or if it`s winter – the road is perfect)))) the only one problem with that road is speed limit – just 70…..too slow.
    however, we are now discussing in press and parliament of building that road. maybe in 10 or 15 years it will be built.
    Jusy use trains or planes if you come to us. well, better not use russian plains, just trains. Believe me, i`m stuck in here since my birth.


  14. That reminds me of the farm roads we have up here in Missouri, US. Gravel and good, if it’s graded. But when it rains, you better know the routes if you want to get out.


  15. On this site to pictures. One from Yakutsk region and other fra Krasnodar region. This tunnel now can use mr. Putin during the rest from heavy works…)

  16. well that is one realy nice federal road….
    but have you thought about how does offroad looks like there?
    the graund there is mainly mud, so it is no surprise that gravel has turned into emm this…
    the goverment dont give a **** about 600 hundred or even more people that are stuck in there, they are nothing, they can die there easily and nobady will care, think, in moscow there are about 20 milion people, and much more in whole russia…
    goverment just doesnt work the way citizens would like to…
    i hope nobody will die there, and they dont run out of vodka there, because they dont need anything else…

  17. In Canada we build roads through this kind of country and climate. When the frost comes out they disintegrate until they dry out. It’s very expensive to build them, not every county can afford them. People who live on backroads get to drive on roads that would look just like that if that many vehicals tried to use them. It’s a real shame only wealthy people can afford to fly into a major capital.I notice many of the vehicals are transports. It would really help the Russian economy if goods could move around a little easier. Hoping things get better for Russian people.

    • Goods move around on trains just fine. Besides, eastern Siberia is not the land to live comfortably, anyway. Good roads or not.

  18. Wow I Thought rush hour in Down town Chicago IL was nast… at least you can get out and grab a nice cold drink when you get in a jam… lol USA rules….

    “This is Russian Federal highway Moscow city – Yakutsk City, named “Lena”, nowadays.”
    This is Russian Federal highway Bol’shoy Never – Yakutsk City, named “Lena”, nowadays.

  20. Super!!! Nie wiedziałem że coś takiego istnieje. Jadac motocyklem mało strachu… Przy przewrotce nie obijemy ciala.

    We can by motobike drive…

  21. I wonder, why Russia, as a country that earns billions of dollars selling oil and gas, is not able to build good roads, even not motorways. In European part save Moscov and Peterburg, the situation is not much better…..

    • You really wonder?
      Coz good road can only be built by those who need it. People who get the credit from selling oil and gas do not need any roads, especially in eastern Siberia. And locals using this “road” are not selling any oil or gas – that’s simple!

      Besides, have you heard of money-laundering? Road construction in desolate areas is perfecty fitting. Especially federal ones.

  22. I live here all my life and have never seen such a road… Probably it had been after some incredibly strong rain. With our huge territories and bad climate it is impossible to pave all around.

  23. This is Sovien Union. The place were the police can put you to jail if you do not pay a small gratuity for your freedom…, were normal people are great but govermant …
    Hope they have a chance to make their place they want, not what govermant wants…
    I hope and I wish…

  25. M-m-m-m… sexy. You can have lots of fun there, in the mud. Look at the guy in the yellow t-shirt with no underwear and the chicks. They are sooo dirty. :))

  26. Hey, guys, is any country able to show something more spectacular???!!!
    I’m proud that we still have such wilderness in our great country!

  27. Quoting 79:


    The road doesnt have asfalt surface,

    We’ve noticed! LOLOLOL 😉

  28. No need to pave the road actually. The Dempster Highway to Arctic Canada is about 700km of pure gravel, about 2 meters thick. And it works – rain, snow or shine.

  29. Cheer up Russians! This road seems to be quite extreme. It maybe difficult for people in warm and stable countries to understand how extreme weather conditions affect roadkeeping at northern latitudes (> 60 degrees north). I hope that you get this road fixed soon.

  30. Hi!
    That road seems to be perfect for
    serious enduro riders. Hehee…
    But please, to be really serious:
    please don’t you good people blame
    any government because
    there are not a good road over there.
    Siberia is enormous and costs of
    proper road are also. When looking at
    map of that area, everybody can understand
    that over there can simply not be any highway.

    Best Regards,

  31. “11. Russian technocrats had everything figured out when they built this federal highway. Well everything but the rain. We all win when when wealth is more equally distributed.”

    You really don’t know how the roads have been constructed…

    You maby need to read something about russian history.

  32. OUCH!!! In Ukraine (where I live) the most abandoned road in a rural area is a world-class highway compared to that Russian Federal Highway (!!!) on the pictures above, LOL. Still shocked though…

  33. To be correct.
    1. This road is in a mid of Siberia, starting next to Mongolian border and going North for 1500 km.
    2. Class of this road was (and still remains, as permanent one is under construction) “Zimnik”, i.e. winter served road. No permanent bridges on rivers yet.
    3. Either during hottest summer soil remained frozen at depth 50 cm and below. On a surface it’s just mad.

    So, welcome to Russian Siberia, folks!

  34. Yes. I agree with you 111 and 112. For sure
    those roads or ways are too harsh for me and my bike.
    I have to say that I really
    admire you people living there. Really!
    There are no road; except at wintertime!
    I have an enduro bike, Honda XL 600R,
    but I always ride it via normal roads.
    I wish that some day I’ll ride it in mud(???)
    Anyway, the purpose of my first message was to
    admire people who live in Siberia. Everyone
    have brains enough to understand that there will
    probably never be any highway from Europe
    through Siberia.

    Warm Regards,

  35. BTW, Alaska and the northern parts of many Canadian provinces have got the same climate as Siberia – however, the roads there are exactly the same in terms of quality as anywhere else in the US or Canada. Thus, the climate can be of no excuse for this highway’s “unseen quality”. 😉

  36. “I set off from Rome on a journey to Russia, in the midst of winter, from a just notion that frost and snow must of course mend the roads, which every traveller had described as uncommonly bad” –from the Adventures of Baron Munchhausen, first published in 1781.

  37. no wonder we lost the cold war! at least our president has rippling muscles and shows them to world through the clothing that is tight

  38. …very good roads…mam tylko jedną uwage należałoby znieść ograniczenie prędkości do 70km/h szkoda zeby ludzie sie pozabijali…

  39. Pingback: Meine Seite
  40. Yeah theres nothing special about the road, in Northern Canda there are many roads can end up looking like that in spring after the snow and ice melts and it starts raining. Its realy expensive to lay asphalt on a rode in northern climates because in spring as the ground thaws the road cracks so you would need to constantly fix and repave the asphalt, not to mention that its useless when covered by ice and snow. Im asuming important roads are generarly in excelent shape in most parts of Russia.

    One thing I found funny reading the replies was all the people from densly populated countries with warmer climates being suprised at the condition. Well this is what hapens to roads in Siberia, Northern Canada and Alaska.

  41. Oh and by the way when it doesnt rain and the road is re-flatend and fixed up again then you can easily do 100+km/ph on a gravel road like that.

  42. In the beginning of these pages there is a text” to get
    daily entertainment news like this one…”
    Do you guys really enjoy other people sufferings, keepers of these pages are sick people.

  43. “One thing I found funny reading the replies was all the people from densly populated countries with warmer climates being suprised at the condition. Well this is what hapens to roads in Siberia, Northern Canada and Alaska.”

    Sure but the difference is that this is the main road to a city of 200,000. No Canadian or Alaskan city anywhere near that size has highways that get like that. Canada has paved highways going thousands of km to little places like Yellowknife and Whitehorse. Even the gravel highways to tiny Labrador City and Inuvik can be driven year round.

  44. MMMM,, not bad but one has to come to Australia and drive up the old telegaph track far north queensland where the crocidile man Steve Irwin use to hang out to experiance realy realy ( did I mention realy seriously bad roads where there has been no rain and in a day you might be able t drive 30-40 kms, if u are extremely lucky

    Come on down and explore it seems haf the russians are here any way buying up big on Australias mostr famous holiday resort Surfers Paradise, can send site to anyone intersted in white sandy beaches,23c winter time

    Cheers mate from down under


  45. Ludzie z Polski, nie piszcie ze w Polsce sa gorsze drogi. Czytelnicy tutaj nie maja poczucia humoru by zalapac Wasza ironie, szkoda fatygi.

  46. I can remember seeing n being on forestry trunk roads in Canada similar to this road but not quite as busy. It’s impressive what the will to travel will make one endure!

  47. Someone said that Polish roads are scrwd up and I’ve believed it. But when I’ve seen what’s hpn’ in Russia………(No comment)

  48. Somebody here said that this is not a vital highway and that it isn’t used except in winter. That person didn’t know what he’s talking about out. This ‘highway’ is the ONLY road to the destination, and it’s thousands of kilometers long. This is not just one patch of it, it’s almost all like that, right after the Ural region is left behind. The people that use it have no other choice. That’s the only way to get to hospital, another town/village, transport produce, you name it.

  49. Sure, this kind of “natural disaster” situations caused by rains and storms can never happen in truly civilized countries.

    Although…wait a minute, I just remember something

  50. oh my God wazuupp O_o !!? In POland people so often complain; we’ve got terrible ways. but look on russian roads, that isn’t even road, i dont know what is it? fear factors or sth? ;P call mcgaver ;D

  51. well, wise man surely understand what road can be in deep north, no wonder to see such mad on road where is eternal freeze.

  52. These pictures are from middle speed road (did you marked that max speed limit 70 sign?). You gotta to see the roads where the speed limit is 30 😀

  53. I’m so sick of American arrogance and being condescending. After everything the Russian people have been through over the last century, you could at least have some ompassion! Speaking of bad roads, how are the roads in New Orleans lately??!!


  54. Well, I think russian comments here… They think the problem doesn’t concerns Russia, ’cause they don’t know about it – they know only Putin let them know… :-DDD

  55. You funny,but I on she went,cargo withdrewed.Unless believe then on IP see whence ya.ya itself first once such has saw this year,but presently minus 30 so snow all have covered.
    Sorry for my english- write through cheap translator

  56. quote\what is this cream-white car on the second picture?? 2.jpg
    looks like cadillac eldorado (?) \quote

    Not blunt, us haven’t your 6-8 liter cars,because benzine costs 0.9$ for 92 and salary is 250$ in month – it’s toyota crown 98 issue

  57. Well all I can say ppl is tell you’r government to stop spending so much money on war and do something for the ppl of Russia this is a disgrace

  58. hi from Canada, my wife said she is not complaining anymore about our roads, in fact here government will fix your car if you damage it on a road

  59. It is unfortunate that people have to deal with such conditions, but mother nature will always be stronger than human kind. There are a number of reasons, why the road is the way it is, but making assumptions without solid facts is unfair.
    What saddens me even more is the insults the people write to each other on this website towards the different nations. I’m not biased, because I was born in the eastern block (Czech Rep.) and have been fortunate to enjoy the luxuries of the western world (Canada) for the past 19 years.
    People need to start helping each other, rather than turning on each other and being judgemental.

  60. Wow. I’ve not really thought about road conditions or infrastructure concerns that other countries have to endure — this is simply amazing. You say in the blog entry that the road ends up like this after it rains — how often does it rain out there? Also, do Russian citizens have any say in the current government?

    I’ve been out of the US only once during a trip to Mexico, but am eager to see and learn what it’s like outside the “borders of isolation” here.

    Yes, I’m American, and no, I’m not arrogant — just terminally curious. Unfortunately, most of my other compatriots aren’t as interested in what happens in the world and would rather beat/kill/mame others who aren’t like them. =o(

    Very eye opening post — thanks for sharing it! =o)

  61. I am blogging this message from Whitecourt, Alberta, Canada and to tell you the truth… I will never ever complain about the shape the roads are in back in Saskatchewan. This is terrible! At least in Alberta we know how to build a highway and maintain it, too!

    BTW can I bring my stepdad’s Dodge 4×4 over to Russia to drive the Lena Highway?

      • well, if this “highway” is something to be proud of – then long live russia!

        seems to be true, the russia consists of several big, modern and rich cities and then there is “derevnja” where people live worse, then they lived 200 years ago…

  62. The same roads stopped German attacks on the Eastern front 😀 in 1941-43 xDD russia is such a country who can defend itself from danger xD

  63. Russia is beautiful country.. and most of the people are really nice…
    I do compliment them on their Perseverance.. They have had to endure many hardships..
    But they always get by.

    Best of luck… one day I dream to visit your Russia 🙂

  64. Thank God, they didn’t put a picture of a man with a long dirty beard holding a bottle of vodka and hugging a bear signed “A Russian is chilling out”…I would have a good laugh…

    Being a Russian, I would like to comment. In such a huge country, you can surely find a road like this ( btw it never happened in my life, even though I have traveled a lot), but it’s very uncommon and in no way reflects the state of roads in the country. Well, knowing geography one would realize how remote Yakutsk is. A Russian would say that Yakutsk is located in the middle of nowhere.

    There are disgraceful pictures and events everywhere, in US, Europe ect. The question is whether you can judge about entire country by them. All in all, I think is that articles like the one above create very negative opinion about Russia, leaving apart the stuff they write about us in foreign mass media. For somebody it’s still very convenient to show us in a bad light and nobody certainly needs a strong Russia.

    • yes, thank you. most people reading / seeing this just do not understand. russia is a beautiful place and stalin made it a hell. from there it got worse. i hope true freedom will come and with it good government. these roads are not good example of what most are, just at a bad time. should the government make it better? of course, but governments all over the world do not do what is good for the people, only what is good for the rich. we are lucky to have really good roads here in usa, but our economy is getting from bad to soon much worse.

    • I am planing a trip from Vladvostok to Sant Petersburgo.
      I wold like to know whith the bether mouns of the roads.
      I am whriting from Brasil, and I heve some dificult of information, if you can ansuer I would be very sanks Yerres.

  65. Northern Canada is the same way.
    It is just not financially possible to pave all the roads. Here it would cost each man woman and child $12000 to pave the roads in this province alone.

  66. I LOVE IT!The vast Russian soul! Same with roads, ah? Don’t worry, you’re not alone! Funny, but most Russians who’ve written here take it personally and attack the West. It’s your problem, guys, not theirs. So, grab the pickaxes and go for it! Or leave it like that and have fun…

  67. The publishers of these pictures deliberately provoked most negative comments from people who do not know Russia. To play honest they should have included more information about this Moscow-Yakutsk road. For instance, the fact that it is over 2500 miles long, and it does have asphalt on those sections which are in European part, as well as in Siberian part of the country until the latitudes, where there exists such phenomenon as permafrost. It is waste of money and labor to lay asphalt on permafrost: only the guys from Northern Canada and Scandinavian countries understand it. The section of the road in the pictures is a special winter road (“zimnik” in Russian), it is good for trucks 9 months a year and it should be used in accordance with its purpose. Unfortunately, the authorities in that part Russia, where these pictures were taken, seem to be unable to regulate traffic on this permafrost road, while travellers do not have enough brains to understand what risks they take driving in summer on a winter road. To play honest, the publishers should have mentioned the location, where the pictures were taken (for instance, 200, 300, or 400 miles to (or from) Yakutsk etc.)

  68. My God… All life of veins in Russia also did not know that at us such bad roads. Roofing felts I am blind, roofing felts this site at any cost aspires to wind to itself a rating.)))

  69. this is not a road. people use it as the road, but it’s not the ROAD…

    in Russia we have places like this in the forest. I mean that is the forest road (

    Russians drive everywhere, therefore of course if you gonna drive your truck in the forest road, you gonna get picture like that.

    and mini-countries shall not even talk about bad roads in Russia, simply becoase they are mini, the size of the Moscow city…

    Oh yee… we have roads in Moscow (20.000.000 people)

    are we still talking about roads?? 🙂

  70. Once upon a time a foreign tourist decided to visit USSR on his own car. He crossed the border and soon his car was broken because the road condition was nearly the same as on the pictures above. When a highway patrol finally came to help him to get out of there he sad them angrilly:
    “- In civilized countries we usually mark the bad road with red banners”
    ” – Haven`t you notticed the large red banner when you crossed the boarder?” – policeman asked him.

  71. I was there, but it was dry in late summer. Not bad at all, dirt yes, but speeds of upto 120 km/h possible.

    Problem is that temperature in winter is minus 40 centigrade, and 40 plus in summer. No matter what surface you made, it had to be reinforced by 4 metres of concrete. It’s not just a question of rolling out asphalt.

  72. If they elevate the road with gravel and sawdust mix, add ditches, drains , culverts and an asphalt surface, there would be no problem. The Alaska Highway runs into similar terrain and yet it is all paved.

    • There are indeed roads like this in Canada, and Alaska. The Alaska Highway was much like this when it was first constructed. Right into the 1960s you could encounter these conditions. It was not fully paved until the 1970s.

      With global warming, there is more thawing of permafrost, and this is causing once stable highways to crumble. There are even whole towns that may have to be relocated or at least reconstructed as the superficial clay becomes gumbo such as you see here.

      As was noted, winter roads are useful in resource oriented areas. they are graded reasonably flat in the fall, then when the ground freezes they have high capacity. In fact many winter roads in Canada run down riverbeds and across lakes. There have been many articles and a few TV shows and movies written on these, as there is still an element of danger in that water crossings can have thin spots develop, and vehicles crash through.

      Such roads can even be developed in cities. In Edmonton, there used to be temporary winter river crossings made by piling up snow on the river and then compacting it. This was not done on the main river, as it would cause flooding in the spring, but on lesser streams where the flood would not cause great problems.

      Xenophobes are self punished persons.

    • YEES, White Mastah! Your wish is my command!

      Ever heard of money-laundering? I guess, all that stuff WAS in original project… But who cares?

  73. I think that building roads on the surface is impossible in large parts of Russia anyways- because of weather conditions and the permafrost. The only thing that one could try to do is to build motorways and main roads on viaducts from one good spot to the other- build that would be incredibly expensive- if feasible at all.

  74. Here in Lithuania we have snow and winters and heavy rains and long springs/autumns too. But we still have better roads…

    Shame on Russia’s gov!

  75. Damn ! I thought our polish roads are bad, but we still have asfalt – that road on the pictures is good for cross-riding not travelling hahahha Russia is strange country at all

  76. I think everyone can find similar roads in every country. I saw a road like this in Texas. But there were not so many cars, just some horses and some cars. It is very easy to say “disgusting country…with disgusting people” in chat. Nobody Knows who are you, what is you native country? I am Russian citizen and I have never seen the road like this in Russia. May be you are just an embittered man /woman…That is why you have written so many dirty words.

  77. We just have launched more new secure proxies for you to protect your privacy while surfing your favorite sites.

  78. You have a lot of good on-line films on your site. I enjoy the design too and its so easy to use. The caliber of a lot of the movies is really good. I hope that you will keep placing the newest pictures on there because I will return umpteen times.

  79. It’s a road that no man should cross. It’s a dead trap. There must be another way around if not then the government should take a look at this issue. There is always a place to start working the road where it is protected then they simply have to move further away from time to time. A federal highway has always the protection of the federal government. Russia can do this! I am sure they can.

  80. Whoever started this story with pictures clearly wanted nothing more than to insult Russia. I lived in Russia for three years and just came back a couple years ago. There are horrible roads in Russia in rural places; nightmarishly horrible. This ‘road’ is in Russia, judging by the Russian license plates. On the other hand, there are severe problems in this depiction of Russia that betray it as unreliable.

    1) The claim that this is a vital, federal highway is rubbish. The major roads in Russia don’t compare to Western roads, but they are navigable.
    2) There is no single road that goes from Moscow to Yakutsk, much less a vital federal highway.

    It makes me ill, reading the comments of self-righteous bottom-feeders born by cosmic accident into western countries with a well-developed infrastructure (rather than some third-world toilet that would be more appropriate for their level of cognitive ability). The cesspool of ignorant commentary here is sufficient proof that this Russian road (wherever it actually is) is less foul and revolting than the putrid minds of many, who feel smugly superior to the poor Russians trying to deal with a bad situation.

  81. This was linked from a childish Us site named “cracked”… get ready for a crowd of cretins posting “cracked sent me here” as comments…

  82. Depending on where you live, you can find unpaved roads all over the place. Outside of cities and towns is usually the most common place for dirt roads.

  83. cant through that damn road with a saloon. man you gotta need 4×4. that’s why never could concur Russia (the heartland).

  84. bad road conditions across huge tracts of wilderness are not the sole province of Russia. In some senses it is great to have so much open space not despoiled and contaminated by overpopulation. In the USA we have almost all of the state of Alaska which can just about rival these types of roads. It makes for a very popular Television Reality program of some kind-only the competitors (as any American show must have winners and losers to succeed)are going across the wilderness for no reason other than generating commercials and profit for some business while tearing up the natural beauty of the land.
    While the great mud spring times foiled invading armies over the past 2 centuries, hopefully it will not be needed as such anymore. It must take time, resources and money to get roads to everywhere over such vast areas. Not just any road either-dirt is better than useless feel good efforts. They must be constructed to weather extreme weather or will be washed away in a year or less. probably fall apart before they get from one place to the other. That takes monumental effort, to make enduring surfaces that will last. I live in the North East part of the USA, less than 60miles from New York City. If i drive north to the state of Vermont, about 200 miles in 4hrs,I will find most of the interior roads are all dirt and called ‘secondary’ roads. they turn to mud every spring and need to be constantly maintained by huge graders . It has been called “mud season” as a 5th annual season. Even with the enormous amount of tourist money from skiing and land development , they still can not make much of a change in all the so called ‘secondary’ roads. There are all kinds of resources locally, too, gravel ,sand, money and all the equipment needed to make changes. It ends up status quo as not being worth it. Of course, there is a large infrastructure of paved federal road system as well as state roads paved and maintained. I am not making a parallel only that, it is not easy for a multitude of reasons to make roads no matter how necessary they may seem to be.
