One of the biggest challenges facing the organizers of the World Summer Student Games in 2013 is providing a convenient arrival and movement through the city for guests and participants of the Universiade.
In order to realize it the program of the road network has been developed in the capital of Tatarstan. As a result of implementation of this program a list of measures is carried out, they are:
- reconstruction of the road network sections which ensures accessibility to the Universiade facilities;
- construction and reconstruction of facilities necessary for a sustainable transport system in Kazan during the Games.
This will increase the capacity of major highways of the city. The completion of the Great Ring of Kazan will become an important step.
Altogether there will be 23 city roads (the total length of 65.1 km), 12 interchanges and 41 walkways built in Kazan. Thus, to the moment of the beginning of the Games the road network of the city will be significantly updated.

The length of the cross-over - 69.62 m;
The width of the cross-over - 30.91 m
Specifications of the overpass over the railroad:
The length of the cross-over - 55.74 lm;
The scheme of the cross-over (simple beam, single-span) - 40.0 m
