The project of the Elgaugol company on the construction of a new railway line from Yakutia to Chumikan near the Sea of ​​Okhotsk was not supported by the Russian government. It was planned that about 30 million tons of coal would be transported along this route per year.

According to "Merchant”, The companies offered an alternative. Instead of a new branch, it is proposed to expand the BAM for 332,6 billion rubles. The funds are planned to be attracted from the investment program of Russian Railways (about 144 billion rubles) and the National Welfare Fund (about 188 billion rubles). Coal will be transported to the Vanino-Sovetsko-Gavanskiy transport hub.

At the same time, the company does not intend to abandon plans to organize direct communication with Chumikan. Project of a new railway line for non-public use coal miners estimated at 97 billion rubles... In addition to the railway itself, it also includes the organization of the port infrastructure.

The conditions set by Elgaugol turned out to be problematic for the government. For the company, it should have been guaranteed priority passage of about 30 million tons of coal per year, while a new branch is being built... It was planned to put it into operation only in 2028. Because of such conditions, the coal-mining regions would have to make room to pass coal from the Elga deposit.
