A famous Russian proverb states that there are two main problems in Russia: fools and roads. Many roads are in a bad condition. However, some new roads recently built are not even shown on the maps and today we’ll get a chance to walk along such a road.
The Ursul River.
The poster on the multi-functional Altay bus states: cafe, sauna, sports, rest.
We have almost reached the mysterious road.
One little explosion and no mountain is found on the way of another new road any more.
In spite of the fact the road is not covered with asphalt yet, it is really nice and wide.
Crushed stone is produced here.
Do you need a bridge? No problem!
A road with beautifully laid asphalt is seen behind the barrier. It leads to a nice house on the valley and a helicopter ground next to it.
The house is guarded heavily so don’t even dream of coming any closer.
The house is actually a tourist complex that is being constructed by Gazprom. It is up to the company to decide how the complex will be used. However, it is already clear that it is not intended for common people.
According to official documents, the road is not private and was built on taxpayer’s money.
The same documents state that the road will lead to a village nearby where tourists can have a rest and relax. But as soon as the house is left behind, the road quality becomes noticeably worse.
What kind of village is it?
It has two dozens of simple houses and no school as people prefer staying in towns.
It is supposed that after having a chat with local inhabitants tourists can go back.
At least the locals can enjoy the new road no matter what the real purpose of its construction is.
