Highway junction at Kurchatov

Forward to Semey (Semipalatinsk, about 100 km away), left to Kurchatov (about 2 km), and right…to the un-fenced magical radioactive wasteland known as the Semipalatinsk Test Site (Ground Zero is about 60 km from here). The drive to this point from Pavlodar (240 km) is about four hours, to provide some insight into the condition of the highways.
