Finally, in May 2012, the opening of the III complex of the junction took place, which consists of an overpass of a cable structure with a length of 665 m and access roads. The length of the cable-stayed superstructure, first constructed in this region, is 360 m, the height of the middle pylon is 98 m.

52 ropes were used in the span, the width of the carriageway on the bridge is 9 m. Specialists of the Moscow Institute IMIDIS tested overpasses and noted the high quality and reliability of the structures.
