10-May-2007 – Мы достигли точки, не выходя из автомобиля. На 213 км трассы М4 Москва–Ростов свернули направо на проселочную дорогу сразу после АЗС «Мега Ойл». Объехав подтопленный овраг по его левому краю, мы продолжили движение по проселочной дороге на запад. На повороте к угольной шахте мы приняли северо-восточнее и доехали по лугу прямо к точке. Эта точка примечательна наиболее симпатичным пейзажем по сравнению с точками в окрестностях Липецка, Пензы и Тамбова, посещенными нами в январе–мае 2007 г.


10-May-2007 – We reached the point without leaving our car. We took a right turn to a ground track just after Mega Oil filling station at 213th km of M4 route Moscow–Rostov. Then we drove around flooded ravine on its left side and kept driving along ground track to the west. We took a north-eastern direction at a turn to a coal mine and drove along a meadow up to the point. This point has more attractive view in compare with the points we visited within January–May, 2007 near Lipetsk, Penza and Tambov.

Attention: In December 1989 the area around the Confluence had a radioactive surface contamination from Caesium-137 of 37-185 kBq/m², the half-life of Cs-137 being 30 years. Thus the time of stay in this area should be kept as short as possible and appropriate measures should be taken by the visitors to protect themselves against any radioactive contamination.
