Minvostokrazvitiya offers to build a new airport complex Zyryanka in Yakutia

A single information portal has published a draft Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation "On Amendments to the Federal Target Program" Economic and Social Development of the Far East and the Baikal Region until 2018 ", prepared by the Ministry of the Russian Federation for the Development of the Far East.

As reported in the explanatory note to the document, the proposals were prepared in order to change the name of the object "Reconstruction of the airport Zyryanka, Republic of Sakha (Yakutia)" to "Construction of the airport Zyryanka, Republic of Sakha (Yakutia)".

It is reported that in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), which does not have round-the-clock ground transportation, air transport is the main and no alternative. Most of the airports in the republic have unpaved runways, as a result of which they are forced to stop working during off-season and muddy periods. The unpaved runway of the Zyryanka airport, located on the bank of the river. Kolyma is subject to annual flooding during the seasonal thaw period (May, June, September). In this connection, in 2013 Zyryanka airport was closed from July 5 to September 6 for receiving and departing aircraft. At the same time, air transport for residents of the village of Zyryanka is the only main mode of transport that provides communication with the rest of the republic and plays an important socio-economic role, providing the necessary transport accessibility.

Taking into account the geographical location and climatic features of the Zyryanka Airport, the Ministry of the East Development proposes the construction of a new Zyryanka airport complex in a non-flooded area as an optimal solution.
