Construction of the spaceport "Vostochny" is at a record pace

Work on the construction of the Vostochny cosmodrome in the Amur Region is in full swing.

Before the first start of time, there is less and less. About six people involved in construction work in two shifts. In the near future, the arrival of another 3,5 thousand employees is expected, and in the summer, student groups will also come to help.

For transport accessibility of the cosmodrome, 115 kilometers of highways will be built. In addition, 125 kilometers of railway tracks will be laid, including a thirty-kilometer branch line from the Ledyanaya station to Uglegorsk and further to the starting complex itself.

The planned equipment of the launch complex must provide at least ten launches per year. The plans include the construction of another site for heavy launch vehicles. Equipment installation at the launch site will begin in mid-May. The launch of the first carrier rocket from the Vostochny cosmodrome is scheduled for the end of 2015; the dispatch of a manned spacecraft with a crew on board is expected in 2018.
