Russian Federation,Sports, Fri, 12 Apr 2013 IANS

Moscow, April 12 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Road-building for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi is three-quarters complete with less than a year to go for the opening ceremony, the head of the state firm responsible for the work said Friday.

Nearly $4.9 billion is being spent on expanding and modernizing Sochi's road network for Russia's first Winter Games, which start Feb 7.

Roman Starovoyt, the head of government infrastructure company Rosavtodor, said Friday the work that began not long after Russia won the right to host the Games in 2007 was 77 percent complete.

The company's two biggest projects are the coast-to-mountain highway linking the two clusters of sports facilities, and a coast-hugging freeway connecting the city of Sochi with the Olympic Park.

By Games time, the city will have acquired 41.6 km of new federal highways.
