The Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East named a factor hindering the development of the regions of the Far East. The main reason is the insufficient capacity of the railways.

As the TASS with reference to the director of the Department for Infrastructure Development of the Far East and the Arctic Soslan Abisalov, in 2020 it was not possible to take out 15 million tons of cargo from Far Eastern manufacturers, seven million tons of cargo from the region were not taken out in the nine months of this year. The largest underload is in the Khabarovsk and Primorsky Territories, as well as in the Trans-Baikal Territory and Buryatia - coal, ore and grain.

According to Abisalov, the modernization of BAM and Transsib will help to solve the problem. Variants of alternative cargo export from the Far East towards the northern seas are also being worked out, which will subsequently allow the use of the NSR. Also, a part of the Barentskomur railway in the north-west of Russia and the Elga-Chumikan railway connection in the Far East will make it possible to transport 800 million tons of cargo every year.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the Cabinet of Ministers to study the issue of building a railway line from the Elga coal deposit to the coast of the Sea of ​​Okhotsk by December. The eastern polygon is the modernization of the BAM and Transsib, which is included in the long-term development program of Russian Railways until 2025.
