Trans-Siberian Hi way
I just thought I would post an update of the Trans Siberian hi way as when I looked I couldn’t find the information I'm about to post.
As of September 2010
I can tell you that from Ulan-Ude to Vladivostok it is now all paved with the exception if a 10km stretch which as I type is being worked on. There is never more than 150kms without fuel and probably less than that. It is 661 kms from Ulan-Ude to Chita and then 2165kms of glorious pristine smooth paved road so new there are no white lines or Armco and not a single police check and I only saw one police car all the way to Khabarovsk. If ever there was a road for hi speed motorcycling in Russia this is the one. And finally 764kms of not so pristine but perfectly acceptable road to Vladivostok. The hardest thing is staying awake.
hmmm I thought they would finish it this year ... good to have it confirmed!
