Vladivostok will be cleared of heavy trucks

Assistant to the President of the Russian Federation Igor Levitin 26 held a meeting in Primorye to develop the port infrastructure of the region. It took place in the port of Vostochny, the press service of the regional government reported.

Opening the meeting, Igor Levitin stressed that the meeting was held on the execution of instructions of the President on the development of the Trans-Siberian and Baikal-Amur Mainlines in conjunction with the ports of the Far East. This is the task that the head of state has set for the Government.

As Deputy Head of the Federal Agency for Maritime and River Transport Alexander Poshivay reported for the 8 months of this year, the total 6 cargo turnover in the ports of Primorsky Krai amounted to 68,5 million tons, which significantly exceeds the figures for the same period last year. Mostly, the increase in freight turnover was due to the increase in the volume of transshipment of oil and coal.

Alexander Poshivay also noted a number of large investment projects for the development of port infrastructure of coastal ports. This is the construction of a terminal in Sukhodol Bay, a coal-loading complex in the area of ​​Cape Open, a port terminal for the export of liquefied natural gas, a number of projects for the reconstruction of the port of Vostochny, the development of the ports of Zarubino, Posiet and others.

Igor Levitin noted that recent trends suggest the export of transshipment of dusty goods outside the cities. He also inquired about the development of the port of Vladivostok within the city. The presidential aide was informed that the port works with almost all types of cargo, including coal containers.

The first vice-governor of Primorsky Krai, Vasily Usoltsev, emphasized that, today, only closed-type coal terminals are allowed in Primorye - this is the principal position of the Governor of the Region, Vladimir Miklushevsky.

“The corresponding decree of the Regional Administration has already been signed. Also, coal transshipment terminals in the region are being created outside urban districts and recreational areas, ”emphasized Vasily Usoltsev.

Igor Levitin drew attention to how heavy vehicles going to the port hinder traffic on the streets of Vladivostok. “All roads and junctions built for the APEC summit are more cluttered with heavy transport, traffic is very difficult in the city, this is wrong,” Igor Levitin believes. He instructed the Federal Agency for Sea and River Transport to take control of the delivery of containers to the port of Vladivostok, unloading city roads.
