Railways refuses to build a transition to Sakhalin at its own expense
The Russian Railways company refused to build a transport passage to Sakhalin at its own expense. The holding is ready to give only 3,5 billion rubles for the preparation of a feasibility study. As reported "Vedomosti", the remaining money - 536,8 billion rubles - is proposed to be invested by private investors.
Previously, the transport transition from the territory of the Khabarovsk Territory to Sakhalin was included in the list of projects that the Ministry of Finance offered to businesses, but there were no interested in this project. Even the government has doubts about the feasibility of building a bridge. According to a source familiar with the materials of government meetings, when allocating state money there is a risk of unjustified expenditure of funds, and without them the project cannot be implemented.
Recently building a bridge to Sakhalin included in the integrated plan modernization and expansion of the trunk infrastructure of Russia. According to the Minister of Transport of Russia Yevgeny Dietrich, the project needs some work. To complete the final calculations and fill it with cargo traffic, you need to find additional sources of funding.
