According to the Directorate of the Highway Samara — Ufa — Chelyabinsk of the Federal Road Agency, three stations will appear on the highway P-240 Ufa – Orenburg, another two — on the highway M-5 "Ural" , one — on the highway West bypassing of Ufa.

Last year 11 additional meteo stations were established on the road M-5 "Ural", M-7 "Volga" and P -240 " Ufa — Orenburg". Currently, the total number of ASMO reaches 24 units.

As a result of work conducted during 2011-2014, on average one ASMO station will be located every 30 kilometers in the region, the Directorate of the Highway Samara — Ufa – Chelyabinsk reports.

All the data coming from such stations are real-time processed and transmitted through the Internet to the experts of the Directorate directly involved in maintenance of roads, as well as to contractors for taking appropriate measures.
