562 billion rubles to 2017 will be invested in the Eastern Range of the railway

The development of the Eastern Range for the Far Eastern Railway remains a priority, said Vladimir Krapivny, the chief engineer of the Far Eastern Railway, at the road technical and technological council that was held in Khabarovsk. The management of the highway, functional units operating at its range, as well as representatives of design organizations and contracting companies discussed the implementation of the 2014 investment program to strengthen the infrastructure of the Eastern testing range within the Far Eastern Railway, the company's press service reported.

So, thanks to the measures taken, the freight turnover on the Far Eastern Railway from 2008 to 2013-m increased by 51,3%, and the cargo turnover increase at the Vanino-Sovetskogavan transport hub amounted to 71,5%. At the same time, a significant part of the Far Eastern Railway, especially within the boundaries of the Baikal-Amur Mainline (BAM), is loaded by more than 77%, which does not allow to provide the necessary rhythm of cargo transportation. Meanwhile, the demand for their organization in the direction of the Pacific ports is increasing every year, which once again underscores the need for the development of the Eastern testing range within the Far Eastern highway.

The President of Russia has repeatedly stated this, stressing that the modernization of the Baikal-Amur and Trans-Siberian mainlines is a priority area for the development of the Far East. In this regard, at present, the Far Eastern Railway, in addition to its own investment projects, is implementing a number of instructions from the Government of the Russian Federation. Thus, on the Khani - Tynda section, it is planned to reconstruct the Yuktali station, to build 11 sidings, second tracks; on the section Komsomolsk - Sovetskaya Gavan - it is planned to reconstruct 23 stations, to build a second new Kuznetsovsky tunnel, and 8 crossings. In total, for the period up to 2017, the consolidated list of priority measures for the development of the Eastern landfill provides for an investment of 562 billion rubles. About 250 billion rubles are to be spent within the boundaries of the Far Eastern Railway, including 161 billion rubles for the development of the BAM and 88 billion rubles for the Transsib. Meanwhile, in order to meet the transportation needs of the declared additional volumes in the direction of the Far Eastern ports and border crossings, it is necessary to implement the full range of tasks for the development of the Eastern range with additional investments until 2020.

The investment program of the Far Eastern Railway for 2014 year is 36,7 billion rubles. 57% of this amount is directed to the implementation of projects on behalf of the Government of the Russian Federation, 46% - to remove infrastructure constraints.

- The events carried out by the management of Russian Railways and the Far Eastern Railway in particular are of great importance for the organization of priority development zones in the Far East, - said Vladimir Krapivny. - Modernization of the railway infrastructure within the borders of the Far Eastern Railway will give a new impetus to increase the volume of cargo turnover, develop the largest mineral deposits in the region, build the necessary infrastructure and implement new international transport projects.
