The Rzhev corridor of the blockade is the road that ran from Rzhevka station along the Ryabovsky highway and the Revolution road to the center of Leningrad. The Rzhev corridor was a continuation of the Road of Life in the city's besieged city, along with it was the only transport route connecting Leningrad with the country from September 1941 to March 1943. There were no active military operations here, but this district (especially Rzhevka station) was subjected to regular bombing and shelling. On this route, trucks and special locomotives-trams carried cargo to distribution points, medicines to hospitals, flour to bakeries. The total length of the Rzhev corridor is about 7 kilometers. In 1985, on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War, 4 ascetic-shaped steles were named along the memorial route, named "Daily Bread", girded with bas-reliefs depicting scenes of heroic time, with words on the tablets: "Rzhev corridor of the blockade" (architect V.S. Lukyanov) .
