The airport for the Udokan field is being reconstructed in Transbaikalia

In the Trans-Baikal Territory, the state examination of the airport reconstruction project in the village of Chara, Kalarsky District, is being completed. It is necessary for the development of the Udokan copper deposit and for the overall development of the transport infrastructure of the region.

The development of the field is supervised by the Far Eastern Agency for Investment Promotion and Export Development. They said that the investor, the Baikal Mining Company, independently prepared design estimates for the reconstruction of the airport and donated it to the regional authorities.

The air harbor will improve transport access to the northern regions of the region, which are now divorced from the rest of the region. There is no automobile communication with major cities; you can get to Chita by train, but in 2,5 days. The local airport can only accept small passenger planes.

The project for the development of the Udokan field, which is impossible without a new transport infrastructure, is of great importance for Transbaikalia. It involves the construction of a mining and metallurgical plant, where more than five thousand new jobs will appear. In related industries, up to 20 thousand people will get an opportunity to find a job.
