Zabaykalsk to Chita Road and Amur Highway Condition/Facilities

by jonhanks Online Now Jan 27, 2013 at 8:12 AM

Hello....

I'm planning to travel from the China/Russian border at Manzhouli/Zabaykalsk to Chita and then on to Vladivostok on the Amur Highway (M58) and M60 and wonder if anyone has knowledge about the road conditions, especially the road to Chita from the border? I'll be travelling at the end of April/beginning of May by car.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Jon

    Hey jonhanks,

    Did you end up doing this trip and how was the road? I am planning to travel this route on a bicycle and am wondering about the surface quality of the highway - specifically Chita to the Chinese border. Is this road paved the whole way? Was there a lot of truck traffic?

    Thanks!
